My sol ate the clutch fluid last week! Slave cylinder went... dunno whether to take it back to the garage or not where it got fixed, theres like an inch or two of free travel/play on the clutch pedal. what u peeps think?

On a second note. Weekends aren't long enough.

got my midbass drivers in, finished looming and installing my 2awg "big 3" however need to goto the welding supply store and pick up some 1/0awg to run as a the grounding strap from chassis to battery. Started ripping all the red out of my car, picked up some light tan leather to replace it with, ordered amber leds for the cluster and hvac console to replace my red painted bulbs (that have now faded to pink). Still need to find out whats "clunking" whenever i hit a bump or take a high speed right turn. Its not the suspension, its all tight, bushings are all good. maybe something is in the RQP.... probably a screwdriver.

Yeah i heard it wasn't too hard to change the slave cylinder... trying to do it around work is a bit of a pain though. Just noticed my post earlier didnt explain that I did take it to the garage to have it replaced... but it had the play in the pedal after (it's loose up the top of its travel).

 

Anyway i can sort out the play in the pedal though? I am mechanically retarded when it comes to cars... I could take a mountain bike apart n put it back together in an hour, a car, it'd take me 3 years.

The bastards. They charged me like £50 labour too.

 

I'll take it back n the grease monkeys can do it right this time. Apart from that... I'm never taking my car back to that place again, it only had it's MOT there the day or two before the clutch went, they didn't do sh*t all when they are meant to check everything.... my power steering fluid was low, dread to think what else they missed.

 

 

Oh and on that note... topping up the powersteering fluid... as easy as it sounds, or do I have to bleed it?

Someone asks me for 50 pounds in labor I'm going to unzip Ahkeem the African Dream and tell them to get busy.

if you replace your slave cylinder just remember to change your master cylinder....when your slave goes out the other is bound to follow, and yes just like sarah said if your Power steering fluid is low then you need to just fill it back up.

I had to change both of them about 2 years ago, so hoping the master should be good for a while, I'm guessing the slave one I got was a bit dodgy or something!

 

Thanks for the heads up though mate :)

gettin quite peeved. been lookin for a car for a while but every dealer i go to is turning me away because my credit is crap. had a dealer tell me hed sell me an 01 civic coupe for 1500 cash. high miles, had been wrecked but was fixed and ran good. go back a week later and ask him about it and he says 1500 as a down payment. wtf? says he has an 03 hed sell me with high miles and a salvaged title for 6500. yea right. everybody on craigslist wasnts 3800 for high mileage egs. i think im destinined to not have a car.

Midbass drivers sound awesome, gave me that little bit of depth i needed between the focals and the sub. not worried about hot spots since im going to scuff the leds to aid in dispersion, might also hit them with a very light coat of white paint to help diffuse the light from them. Also picked up the new material for the interior and some new (much better) adhesive, so my interior will be going from red and black to tan and black. I now have the vinyl for the interior panels, new headliner material, ordered tan carpet w/ black mats with tan stitching, going to be removing the red vinyl from the iggees and replacing with the same material im covering the interior panels with and I will be reinforcing the bolsters with the tan as well. Also ordered a couple of yards of the tan carpet to completely redo the trunk. Looking for a tan and black twill to do a trunk lid liner to cover the fatmat. Got my tint done finaly 38%VLT 13% reflective with a 15%VLT windshield bar. Also have my block stripped, it and my head have a date at the machine shop, then its time to notch the block and girdle for the new rods and pistons. So while the z6 is getting built ill still be driving the sol daily with the d15 thats in it. All in all shes coming together nicely. Still need to swap out busings for polys.

Last time I checked I made a return a while ago. Whether or not I posted a video a while ago. What happened? I thought you weren't a complete bitch. Guess I was wrong there?

 

In other words..
