I had a rattle that I too thought was from the Sport Chrono on the dash. It turned out to be from the instrument cluster. Here is what I did to isolate the noise. While I was driving on a road that created the noise, I stuck a couple fingers into the space between the instrument cluster and bottom of the dash trying different spots until I could cancel the noise. I had to experiment with the amount of force up and down but eventually I found the rattle/squeak area. When I returned home, I inserted some rubber weatherstripping into that area. This weatherstripping was the type with adhesi
Thanks. I appreciate the feedback. I have an in-lb torque wrench but will take the advice about sufficient to torque not leak as best common sense answer (I'll see what my torque wrench says at that point for grins).
I plan on using the Motive to bleed my brakes this weekend and after searching the forum and maintenance manuals I cannot find an exact value to torque the bleeder valve. I have seen reference to 7.5 lbs-ft and 9 lbs-ft. I assume this is an ok range (staying on the low side, assuimng no leaks). I am a little sensitive to this since I had a 1 year service done at a dealer a while back and the left front outer bleed valve came back with a slightly rounded head, as if the tech over-tightened it and the wrench slipped off. Any comments about the torque range or the exact value if you know
I would not say there is a problem but just make sure you clean, treat, and protect them on a normal interior cleaning schedule. Once I fixed my water spot issue (I have a cab) they have been spot and trouble free. Any leather will spot if not cared for properly, it is just that the vent holes require a more careful approach IMO.
I had something similar with my black ventilated seats after I did a poor leather conditioning application (my car was new and I made the mess) - not water stains, but visable stains nonetheless. After some research I bought the Leatherique products. It worked great for me and completely removed the stains. I slightly modified their instructions by using the rejuvenator solution as a spray. That way I was able to apply a nice uniform coating, work it in and let it sit for about 4 hours, and then followed their instructions to finalize the work. If you are running out of ideas, this might
