      Isn't it easier to remove the three bolts under the control arm than it is to spread the spindle to disconnect the strut? No special tool is needed when you do it that way. (Perhaps I am thinking of...

      Well, it took the dealers tech the whole day to figure out that my front left bearing is the culprit. The service advisor also recommended four new tires too. I guess my BFG Sport Comp 2s are way...

      Someone else also produces a bolt/collar set for this application. It's cheaper, I think.

      I got this.

      However, this week, an indy mechanic thought it may be transmission noise, so off to the dealership I go for a second opinion...

      I think there is a camber adjustment. Nothing appears loose or overly cambered though.
      I think I should try to rotate the tires and then see if the noise is tire related. Tires are BFG Sport Comp...

      Do I need to do an alignment?

      I disconnected the rear lower control arm in order to adjust the coilover. Now I am wondering if I am hearing a noise whose source of which I am unsure. Could be noisy tires; could be wheel bearing...

      They are simply plastic L brackets, about 2.5" long, 3/4" each leg. They attach to the sill with a screw. Sorry no pics. I sold my set 'cause I never installed them. The parts shouldn't be hard to...

      I thought there's a way to drain accumulated condensate. Under pass. Side dash? Dry out the vents gets rid of smelly bacteria, or so I heard. I need to try this.

      Lube the tracks? If not that, then I would try seating the ends again. IIRC, there was an audible click once the end of the bow was in place. I pushed downward until it clicked in. Good luck. You...

      Thanks for this! Super easy. A relief, especially since I was actually considering dropping the headliner. No need for that. ...the only downside is that the part cost me $130 at ECS:thumbdown:

      Just relating my own recent experience with steering noises at low speed:

      I discovered that it is a very bad idea to us anti-seize compound on the axle bolt. It was literally hand tight (or hand...

      On mine, I went with pan replacement -- only because I reasoned (unwarranted, perhaps) that if I rethreaded the hole, it would potentially leave metal burrs in the pan. Either way, I would have...

      Which one are you replacing?

      Was yours a D revision? Are these failing too?

      I'm just curious since the rubber diaphram ones have been phased out, and many of us have proactively upgraded. For those of us with intermittent...

      There is a TSB for the front brow that illustrates the process. Most likely it is a similar process for the rear one. I'll post a description if I am successful. I read another thread about the...
