  • Front Strut Replacement The Hack Mechanic Way

    Front Strut Replacement   Overview Okay. It's time to replace your front struts. Maybe you're doing it as part of a shocks-and-struts job. Maybe you're updating the entire suspension—shocks and struts, springs, and sway bars. Maybe you're doing a full front end refresh including ball joints, tie rods, center track link, and idler bushings. Maybe you're doing an undercarriage refresh and are sandblasting and repainting the subframe and strut housings at the same time.   W

    Chillin' Louie: To Coldly Blow (Part IX: Firing it up, buttoning it up)

    Okay, with the compressor and bracket, condenser and fan, evaporator assembly, receiver-drier, hoses, and wiring installed, it was time to fire it up, then button it up. Similarly, with the project itself complete, it's time to button up this series of articles. As such, this is a long piece that touches on a number of topics.   Leak detection   There's a whole chapter in my a/c book devoted to leak detection, and specifically to the use of nitrogen or other dry inert gas to

    Chillin' Louie (Part VIII: Wiring)

    With all the major components installed and the hoses made, the next task was wiring the system up. This will be a short one (that's not an electrical joke :^), as in a car like this, the wiring is trivial.   Wiring diagram   Someone (Conserv, probably) had posted a copy of the Clardy wiring diagram. It is below.     More general, and probably more useful, is the diagram I have in my a/c book:   Generic wiring diagram from Just Needs a Re

    RGB Off Season GTG at Mecklenburg Gardens in Cincinnati

    02/12/2022, 11:30 PM    02/13/2022, 04:00 AM
    I have changed the date from January  22nd due to the NFL playoff schedule and the recent success of the Cincinnati Bengals. The Super Bowl will be on February 13th, so we should be able to work with the day before the SUPER-DUPER Bowl. If we wish, we can retire to the nearby Highland Coffee House (which sits catty-corner to Mecklenburg) afterwards for a late night coffee or night cap.   Address:  302 E. University Avenue,  Cincinnati, OH  45219.

  • crank housing stripped

    Hello knowledgable faqers, I am in the midst of a what seems like a life long 2000 coupe resurrection!  My engine is leaking on the stand!  Not a good sign.  It seems as though the crank housing at the flywheel side has a stripped bolt.  Maybe too long of a oil pan bolt was used.  either way its stripped. It wont allow a tight fitment.  Short of replacing the housing (which looks likely) any suggestions?  Maybe I can find a .5 size up from the bolt and tap it.  but that housing has a collar type

    Paint match?

    Arktisblau Metallic #45 Would anyone have a current color match?  Trying to match on a project car. They scanned it but it's still hit and miss.  Just wanted to check if someone had a current match they like. Thanks in advance, Joe

    Introduction

    Hi everyone! My name is Jenna and I purchased my car on March 20th of 2020. I started to grow a fascination with cars and really wanted something to get my hands on to help me learn. I had been in search of a project for a couple of months when my one of my dad's friends mentioned a BMW he would be willing to sell that would be the perfect fit. At the time, I didn't know much about 2002's at all (and admittedly I still have a lot to learn), but it seemed like a wonderful opportunity. Me, my

  • Odometer Repair

    Written by Curt Ingraham Tuesday, 06 June 2006 (edited by Scott Sislane 4/12/2020)   If your speedo still works, but the odometer has stopped paying attention, you have the classic 2002 odometer failure. You can take it to a speedo shop and pay $75-150 for a repair, or pick up a used instrument cluster at a swap meet or salvage yard for less than half that. Chances are, if you are skilled with tools and patient, you can fix it yourself for free. Rear of the Instrument Cluste

    Changing Front Strut Bearings

    Changing the strut bearings means getting the struts out. I can deal with engines and drivelines, but I know diddly squat about suspension, so I got hopelessly confused by both the terminology, and by what attaches to what, functions how, and can move in which way. Hence, here's a pictorial guide to changing strut bearings. You know you will want to change yours if there are large cracks in the rubber support, even though I now realise that the consequences of the rubber support failing are not
