Re: front wiper noise

Thank You Andy

That is what it was, both nuts were loose causing movement in the mechanisim resulting in the annoying noise.

No seizing issues with the splines. Fixed up good as new in 15 minutes. Let it rain.

Re: front wiper noise

Thanks guys but it is definitley a noise associated with the linkage itself. Not electrical I guess I got to get under the dash and do some digging... I wish I had smaller hands

Re: Re-charge A/C

funny how a thread on a/c can switch to fishing, but thats the beauty of fishing, you can talk about it any time. i am headed to hihium lake tomorrow for 4 days... should be glorious, and a big rainbow or two wont be too hard to take. i will give the recap when i return next week.

tight lines.

Re: Stupid Oil Question

actually most synthetics will mix just fine with dino oil, it makes no sense to mix syth with regular on purpose, but if you are low on the dipstick and you are running synth, then topping up with regular oil wont hurt anything if thats all you got. you would want to change the oil back to one grade...

Re: Mystery Rattle Solved (I think)

somebody called it "bees in a paper bag" at 60km/h and up. = annoying.

it was the rubber srip atop the depo lamp, i took em off both and the buzzing is gonzo. if only the clunk in my subframe was such ane easy fix.

Re: slow acceleration, no power on hills

one thing you could check is maybe your linkage from the turbo to the watsegate has become disconnected so you are basically turbo-less which i have seen happen. easy to check lie on your back and shine a light up to the turbo side of the engine and give it a visual.

maybe, and its an easy fix.

I have been driving this one for over 1 year and as of 2 weeks ago it started making this super annoying noise, starting at 55 km/h and it was right behind my speedo. Not un...
