  1. I notice it states amber and not the red third stop light can be pulsed. Can the third brake light (RED) be replaces with an amber lens and still conform to state laws?
  2. If you are running the cartridge type, you may want to pick up an O-ring for the canister and the correct size tool for removing the canister. Or you can do what Plastikos suggested and switch over the the LN Engineering spin on filter. If you do switch to the spin on filter, be sure to purchase a filter can opener so you can inspect the filter element. I purchased the Proform Oil Filter Cutter see link... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/pro-66490?seid=srese1&gclid=CNiRop7Ror8CFUYA7AodIG4Axw
  3. I see I'm not the only one that made the same mistake. I did the same thing on my charcoal color corolla DD about a month after we drove it off the dealer's lot. Some fool parked so close to me that I had to squeeze in the car and when i was squeezing, and somehow left a 2-3 inch scratch on the rear door. My home repair attempt left me in the same situation as you. So I took the car to toyota to inquire about body shops. I was in luck as the paintless dent remover tech that did work for many of the local dealers was there, he took a look and said he can do the repair. Although it was not a paintless repair, the tech rectified the problem in about 1.5 hours for $100.00 (i had touch up paint pen from dealer so i saved 20 bucks) while i waited. Here is what the tech did to repair the trapped polishing compound. 1. Used a pointed pic (like the ones dentists uses) to scratch through the clear coat 2. used wax and grease remover on soft bristol brush (looks like toothbrush) to clear out all the polishing compound 3. washed area with regular car wash soap from a spray bottle to clean the area 4. wiped area with a tack cloth and let it dry 5. used a artist paint brush and filled with color paint from the paint pen i got from the dealer and placed a quarts heat light to dry paint 6. used a micro size painter to spray some clear coat over the repaired area and used heat light to dry again 7. Then his clean up guy came by and ran an electric buffer over the area. Over all the repair is excellent. Only thing is the charcoal paint pen from the dealer is a tad darker and when up close, you can almost see the pattern of the scratch. but can never tell it was a repair there. Tech told me that when he repairs cars at the dealers, he always purchase touch up paint pens from the dealer and some times it is not a 100% match and the only way to get 100% patch is for custom blending and that = $$ and time.
  4. Based on your pics, the indentation looks shallow. Shallow = double row Deep = single row. Some one correct me if I am wrong.
  5. Look on Pelican's DIY pages for explanation and pics. http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/14-ENGINE-Intermediate_Shaft_Bearing/14-ENGINE-Intermediate_Shaft_Bearing.htm Scroll down and look at figure 13
  6. I have both a PST2 and a Durametric. To fully use the PST2 coding capabilities you need to have the dealer pull the IPAS codes from the car for you. Dealer charged me 1 hour labor for the IPAS codes and a carwash.
  7. 2 tips... Throw a few sonic pest control devices (AC powered instead of batteries) under the car to keep field mice from moving into the car, and To keep the car smelling fresh, crack the windows a bit for circulation and throw in a few of the volcanic rock odor eliminator bags in the car.
  8. If its a buckle looking piece of metal (hard to tell in pic), it could be the buckle used to secure the seat belt when strapping in a child seat. My bmw came with one.
  9. I took a pair of vice grips and locked it on the shaft about 1 inch below the base of the knob, then with laid a small screwdriver handle (about diameter of a AA battery) across the top of the vice grips about an inch away from the shaft. Using a large open end wrench that fits around the shifter shaft, I slid the wrench over the shaft between the screw driver handle and the knob and used the screw driver handle as the fulcrum and just squeezed the vice grips and open end wrench, knob popped off with minimal effort.
  10. Mine is pushed to March 20, 2014 - April 14, 2014. In addition to the pushed date notification, my email also required me to update the order by April 11, or the order will be canceled. I highlighted info in the email below.
