      Back from the dead.

      I pulled left and center rear headrests years ago, but in the last few months I've been wanting to pull the right rear headrest and could never recall how.

      We've had a bit of chatter lately about changing the gear oil in the front bevel box. It does not have a stated service interval (aka 'lifetime') but there's a handful of datapoints on 'grotty...

      Rain in the morning, mostly dry in the afternoon.

      What switch are you flipping? Straight flapper mod doesn't involve a switch.

      If it's an aftermarket exhaust, it doesn't have a flapper (or it's rare/custom).

      Welcome.

      My assumption is that reservoir is there for the intake power port, so safe to delete if going SRI.

      Works for me. You probably need a 'real' PC that runs a relatively current version of MS Excel, not a smartphone.

      CANBUS is very roughly 'Ethernet for automobiles'. It describes the whole network, sort of:

      I'm just making stuff up, but I thought I remembered that distinctly 'Turbo' things like boost couldn't be read, because it's not designed to be on the CANBUS of an R32 in the first place.

      I thought my dealer chose the same lube as rear diff.

      Do you think they screwed up, or is this one of those '38, 39, whatever it takes' scenarios?

      I should probably have it done again anyway....

      I had not. Wish I had. They're a little cheaper than OEM, too.
