  1. Hi, Is it possible to order a black bezel for a Single DIN radio that will match the console line better than the one I have (more flush with the edge)? What would be the part number? Thanks Chris
  2. AFAIK, on 2002 the fuel filter is located inside the tank and not serviceable. So you are left with the pump unless someone more knowledgeable comes with additional input.
  3. What a difference! I really have to try this but I'm not yet comfortable. Can you please be a bit more specific about "plastic & taping off the passenger compartment"? Tks Chris
  4. What a clean motor! Do you first protect electrical part (ie alternator)? If so which one and how? Tks Chris
  5. This is not the original bulb but a LED replacement. You can get LED from several suppliers, such as www.superbrightleds.com
  6. Just had a problem with upper pulley, so thought I might jump in... Before doing any R&R on the idle pulley, just listen to the noise by putting a metal rod on the central bolt and listen to the sound from the other end while the motor is on. (I don't remember if the central nut on the tensioner pulley is rotating or not). If you hear any "grinding" noise, then the bearing is toast and it worth the replacement. You can also try to turn any pulley by hand as well: if it turns freely without noise, then you're OK (at 100$ a piece I would not replace the pulley as a preventive maintenan
  7. Thanks guys, even if bad news. I'm looking for a replacement. UPDATE: I'm a lucky guy, turn out to be the upper pulley bearing. Level is at the lower part of the COLD indication, will check again with HOT engine. Fluid looks like very slightly yellow (like thin oil). About the smell this is a tough one: a bit like new electronic device...Look OK to my eye (and nose....) Overall I'm lucky as I found that the sound is coming from the upper pulley. Tried to remove it but couldn't get the long bolt out!!!??? Don't tell me that the motor has to get out to remove the pulley! As
  8. What about looking here: http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/ksearch/PEL_search.cgi?command=show_part_page&please_wait=N&make=POR&model=986M&section=ELswch&page=1&bookmark=0&part_number=996-613-112-01-M100
  9. There's a high pitch noise coming from the motor, increasing with RPM, that is very irritating, especially with top-up. While changing the PolyRib belt, I run the motor for a couple seconds without belt, and oh, what a nice sweet guttural sound. Seems like the sound is coming from the Power Steering Pump. I turned the pulley by hand without effort, but axis is very slightly loose. What are the forum recommendations? Do I need to R&R the Power Steering Pump? Edit: from web search, next steps involve spraying WD-40 on the bearing, inspect pulley edge (for visible rubbing from axial p
  10. Just found out today that if you don't close completely the top, you will see that the canvas is attached to a metal tube with a strap. Just tight it a bit more and voila... If you don't see what I'm talking about let me know and I will take a picture
  11. Pictures says it all: is there a way to adjust the cable so that it will run inside the rail? Thanks
  12. On my 02S, seat height adjustment requieres that I push the seat towards the back (by pushing with my feet). Turning the lever itself is enough.
  13. Go for black and paint them yourself later if necessary. Easy job.
