  1. There are small black flares right in front of the rear wheel wells...right at the bottom of the body. Anyone know what these are even called? Stone protectors? I need to replace them. Thanks Larold
  2. I have a 2002 Carrara Cabriolet, and can't find anything online about this...There seems to be some foggy grime on the INSIDE of the dashboard (odometer and speedometer) windows. I don't know if some moisture got in there before I owned the car or what, but is there any way to get in there and clean it? Thanks, Larold
  3. Your're right. It used to be attached to the gizmatron honeybuckin.
  4. Ii have a 2002 Carrera Cabriolet, I opened the engine compartment and found a small rubber hose, maybe 8 inches long, about 1/4 to 3/8 inch diameter coming from the housing with the words Hydrolicoil on the filler cap. Does anyone know where the other end is supposed to go? The car is running fine, but it worries me. Thanks for any help.
  5. I have had a garaged Ferrari's electrics eaten by rats. 6 month later, coming home from the mechanic's a giant rat jumped off the rear deck onto the freeway. It had been living for months on the exhaust system, and when it got hot, it tried to jump. Something may have died above the engine area. Good luck getting to it...
  6. One of the horns on my car is not functioning. Dealer wants $150 to fix it. Is this an easy thing too get to, or do I have to go through a mess of stuff? Thanks, Larold
  7. I have a 2005 Carrera Cabriolet with an automatic transmission. Is it possible to somehow program the thing to start out in 1st, instead of 2nd gear? Thanks,
  8. That's because you were closer to the satellites! I don't know why, but my Magellan just wasn't up to the task. I'm not an engineer but I'd be surprised if 20 or 30 thousand feet made a huge difference to something moving at 17k miles an hour and over 100 miles away. When I was in the army we'd always have the new guy stand on the roof of the truck and hold up the GPS unit to get a better signal. It's the funniest **** thing to watch a guy that honestly thinks 4 feet is going to matter try to peer at the dimly lit screen of a plugger held over his head in a snow storm. If he's willing to do that you know you'll have no problem giving him a roll of duct tape and a trash bag to "take an exhaust sample" from the Hummer. :lol: That's funny! We used to send rookies out for left handed smoke shifters in the Boy Scouts. :P I was, of course, just kidding about being closer to the satellites... Anyhow, they are geosynchronous, and don't move relative to points on Earth.

  10. Oh, and 147 isn't a crazy speed? I had mine up to 122 in central CA, and my GPS couldn't keep up either.

  12. OK. Here's an update, which may alert you to some issues. EasyCare is now offering me 3 options to fix my transmission. First, get a refurb, and contribute $6000.00 towards it. Yikes! Second, send it to a local (LA) transmission place, get it refurbished...and my dealer says there isn't a good one here, or Third, send it to a good one, no matter where. My Dealer will have the final say on QC. I went for the last option. In the fine print, because the warranty company is looking at so much money, it says they can put a refurbished tranny in, and not a new one. Though you might want to be alerted to this stuff.
