The radio is not OEM. I put an aftermarket radio in my car because I didn't like the OEM cd changer

The steering rack bushings are $40.

Knowing your skills, the steering rack bushings should be a piece of cake!

Check the suspension forum. I made a DIY thread for the steering rack bushings.

Hi GSteg!

What exactly does one notice with the new bushings? More control or sensitivity?
My CD changer is the glove box and holds 6 CD's
Thanks

Alex

You'll notice more precision in the steering. Plus there will be less slop in the steering!

HI GSteg!

Looks like there are issues in regards to getting the parts. Reading the posts gives the impression that a lot of the people have been waiting for months. I guess that is what you get when you are the only kid in town.

Hi Anybody!

I'm interested in getting the steering rack bushings, but if there is a problem with supply, then I'll wait before ordering.
Has anybody gone through this problem and how long did you have to wait before getting them?
Thanks

They probably can. If they dont, contact TM engineering.

Default REAR WATER BYPASS JOINT replacement

Hi all

Thank you for all of the great info that is shared here. I have learned lots about possible diagnoses and just switched off the "Check VSC" lights with the paper clip. How easy!

I have a coolant leak which is visible in the REAR WATER BYPASS JOINT assembly. The part is not much ($123) but it looks like the manifold has to be removed to replace this joint. I was wondering if anyone might know that answer?

Thank you very much!
