      Where the hell do I find these things locally. Its annoying to hear this rattling evertime I drive. I've called a lot of different shops and no one carries them here. Has anyone had this problem with there 24v, I know its a common problem on these motors I just can't seem to find the part locally. I've tried the dealer and they sell the rod for 120 but all I need are the bushings that go on the rod.


      Please tell me if there is someone who stocks this part here in Ontario

      if someone can tell me where to get it locally!

      not local but the best answer.


      if its really bad take the rod out. your cars performance will be a lil down in the low range. but its fine.

      Its fine to drive with no rod in? Sounds like it might mess something up even more

      Perfectly fine. You just lose the long runner length for low down torque. Rod out means you'll be stuck with the shorter runners. The rod just diverts air to increase or decrease the length of the runners.
