  1. Ran it with the belt off to eliminate the possibility of bad belt/pulleys. Turns out it was the throwout bearing. Got a new clutch and bearing installed. Sounds great now!
  2. Which infiniti's did you upgrade to? Did you have to do much trimming to get them to fit?
  3. Another update: Had someone over here today looking at it with me. He suggested it may be the clutch release bearing. When I push the clutch in the noise does not reduce, but it does change in pitch/frequency. Any idea if that's a DIY replacement? Or does that require an engine drop to get to? Also, I found out that running the car with the MAF unplugged not only gets you a check engine light, but also disables PSM and ABS.
  4. +1. I think I had about 3 smaller extensions to get to them.
  5. Crosspost from rennlist: Started the car about a month ago to an unpleasant sound. Upon startup it made a squeal (which sounded to me like a belt or pulley), but after warming up and driving a few blocks it faded. If I start it up overnight in approx 10+C conditions it's a faint sound that goes away, but if I leave it out below that it's a rather loud squeal, then goes away, always at operating temp. Any ideas what this could possibly be or where to start troubleshooting? '00 C2, manual, 103k kms, no engine mods. --- update --- Did some digging today. Bought a stethoscope, the whole 9 yards. The pulleys all sound fine. Lubed a few of the noisier ones. Power steering fluid is at the max line, coolant is topped up, no oil leaks, belt is in superb condition... Still squealing. Goes away after I hit operating temp, and won't do it again untill the car has been sitting for hours in the cold. While digging I found it odd that the noise was more prominent from the wheel wells than at the engine. I'm at a loss. Anyone? ~thanks
  6. If you still have all the manuals there's a wiring diagram with the becker manual. Another option is to pick up an Audi/VW wiring harness from Metra. I didn't take pics when I did mine, and I don't remember the colour coding.
  7. Thanks for the help. It worked perfectly. I'll give it a temperature test tomorrow after it's had a chance to mix into the system.
  8. Related question to the topic - if I want to bring my freezing protection to a colder temp (it's at -35 now, I'd like at least -40), is there an easy way to do it? My coolant is at the max line now, so adding becomes difficult without draining or syphoning some out, and I don't want to get any air trapped in the system.
  9. That grommet that holds the lock mechanism always pops out on mine.
  10. Thanks. Didn't see it in the amazon.ca store, so I assumed it couldn't be shipped here. Looks like they can though!
  11. I can't find a wrench that'll work in this city for the life of me. I did however find an adjustable one, like so: Will this work? It says it's good for 2 1/4 to 4 1/2. Just worried about it being metal and the cap being graphite...
  12. The Snap-on spark plug socket listed, is that just a regular spark plug socket?
  13. Went down to the garage, took a look at removing headliner, and figured it'd be an easy way for me to turn a quick DIY fix into an expensive dealership mess. Took it to the dealer last night before I messed things up, got 'er fixed up today. Apparently it was a cracked/broken seal from the drain lines to the accumulation area. Upholstry was never my strong point :huh: Thanks for all the help.
  14. I've got my seat moved almost all the way forward with the ultimate cupholder. It's sitting a hair off-kilter, but still works great.
