    Correction: the front piece is the prevent one. Sadly.
  5. Replace metal line from ABS to LR caliper

    Ordered both pieces and getting ready to install. Turns out the front most piece arrives in coil shape and, fortunately, at least the rear one is pre-bent to the caliper. Presumably they do this...

    How are you removing the rearmost horizontal bolt on the front of the driver's side LCA w/o lifting the engine for clearance?

    Thanks all, appreciate the feedback on the slack. Expect the play in the system with 165k but it's that loud click I'm concerned about in the video.
  8. Thanks

    Thanks Bill, was wondering if it's age/mileage typical wear thing. Does your shaft end rotate slightly relative to the tranny when doing this? I'm asking because if that's a sign of CV wear I'm...

    For my situation it appears to have been the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Easy to replace while I was replacing the starter (which also cured many many things).

    Not much to go on, best to grab some codes and see what you're dealing with. Can't say enough goodness about the iCarsoft 960 scanner, paid for itself first use for sure.

    Great feedback Bill. Also, I'd check for missing spring on calipers, can cause brake pad clunk as well.

    Perhaps FCP's Sachs ones are better. 3000 miles is ridiculous, I'd send them back to FCP and get their take.

    Turbo bearings aren't the kind of bearings you typically find in a car, or skateboard. They are more like sleeves that float on a film of your engine's oil, there are no ball bearings involved. ...
