  1. 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 adhesive on the back so it would stay put and very narrow, window sil type. I went back out to the same road and tested the repair. I found one other spot on the opposite end of the cluster and fixed. About 10 mos later I am still noise and rattle free.

    This may or may not be your noise issue but it can be tested very easily.

  2. 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 it? Thanks.

  3. Curious if the ventillated seats are desirable with the stain issue apparently common.

    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.

  4. 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 be something to try.
