    You'll be fine! Just take your time and enjoy yourself.
  2. [Brakes] Could really use some advice (like right now) re: parking brake pad replacement

    Yes, you will be removing the main hard line that runs the length of the trailing arm and the crossover line that blocks those two bolts.

    You will have fluid loss and air in the system, but...

    If I remember correctly:

    Remove the 2 hard lines
    Remove cable via the 10mm nut
    Flatten lock tabs so you can access the 2 (11mm?) bolts
    Remove bolts (threaded at the top)
    The lock tab and the...

    Doug -

    The parking brake pads are quite simple to replace.

    if you disconnect the hard lines at all 4 callipers, you can effectively blow out all the lines - hard and soft!

    Indeed. Soft lines can collapse internally too, resulting in a lack of brake fluid at any calliper.

    You replaced the callipers, or pads? If you've got spanky new callipers you ought to get fluid.

    Did you blow out the crap from the hard lines before putting everything back together?

    Are your trailing arm dust shields on nice and tight? They can rattle and squeal.

    Matt,

    the outer front calliper is an odd duck - it relies on gravity to fill and bleed since the Chunnel (haha) is over the top and the hard line and bleeder share the same physical space on the...

    I bet the rattle is the engine grates. They are held in with retention strips that do very little retaining.

    No need to apologize.

    The temperature gauge and corresponding sensor have nothing to do with fan operation.

    [General] Update

    I removed the retractor yesterday and gave it some TLC. It was clearly not safe in its current state as it wouldn't recoil without me shoving belt back down the door trim.

    [General] Seat belt retractors - serviceable?

    Has anyone breathed new life back into a lazy belt retractor?
