  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
  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. Other than constant delays from amazon, does anyone know what the true status is of this book? -----Original Message----- From: order-update@amazon.com [mailto:order-update@amazon.com] Sent: Monday, February 17, 2014 9:22 AM To: alw911@ashburnva.net Subject: Your Amazon.com order (#106-1882225-8505812): your approval required Hello, We're writing about the order you
  11. I received the same email. This time, the message indicates a need to respond by April 11 or the order will be cancelled.
  12. I just ordered the Proform oil filter cutter from Summit for $75.97. Too bad i have another 2100 miles to go before i get to use the new tool. Here are the vitals from summit web site...

  13. Been running one for 20k miles with stable oil with pressure and no problems to date. Only draw back... Its a pain in the a$$ to open up the canister to inspect the filter for metal particles.

  16. I preordered one back in July 21, 2013 and am still waiting. When I ordered the manual, Amazon listed the book as an October delivery which turned into November, then December, now Feb 19th. Al
  17. On my 01, there is a setting to alert the driver when you reach a preset max speed. I have mine set for 70; when i reach 70 mph, I get an alarm beep. Mine is controlled by the shorter lever right below the turn signal lever. Can you post pic of the display? Al
  18. Here is what it cost me to have both fobs and keys replaced and programmed... Purchased 2 key blades cut for my car (keysinthepost.com) ~25.00 shipped 1 fob from ebay ~ 120.00 shipped 1 fob from dealer ~ 200.00 Dealer program 2 fobs - $65.00 List of IPAS codes for my car- FREE
  19. Another question is can this DOF kit be install on cars currently with an LN kit?
  20. Just a thought... How is the oil level. Is it dropping? If it is oil that was spilled into an area you can not reach to clean out, the oil level should remain fairly constant.
