      Probably water pump, because, hey, let's make a critical part- one which takes a day to swap out- from plastic that can't handle exposure to oil, and then put it where it will get oil dripped on it...

      I had the same thing start after an oil change and alignment at the dealership. It's worst when traveling over pavement where the cracks have been sealed with tar and are slightly raised. My...

      Put me on the list too- interested in seeing if this mounts to something substantial or just to the plastic skirts and lip.

    17. Upgrade to RNS 315 -> unit powers off with ignition instead of key pull; armrest jack inactive

      Upgraded last week. With the old RCD-whatever, when I turned off the power, the radio stayed on until I pulled the key out of the ignition; now it powers off with the car.

      I did some...
