Re: Water dam at base of drivers wiper arm?

Re-examining this in better light (and rainfall) this morning, there really doesn't seem to be a "drain hole" to empty this pocket below the wiper post. This area is now quite clean, but is again...

Re: Water dam at base of drivers wiper arm?

Thank you for checking this, gentlemen. Although not visible from any angle I could see, it seems that there is indeed a drain hole deep in that plastic pocket under the driver's wiper post. This...

Water dam at base of drivers wiper arm?

I've only owned this car for 17 years, but never noticed water damming at the base of my driver side wiper. The resulting ice formation was a bit of problem last winter, so I'm trying to figure this...

Re: L200 5spd Slave Cylinder Woes

Recalling the slave cylinder replacement project, I originally delayed that job because the service manual suggested that you must drop the subframe for slave replacement, making it a bigger job than...

Re: L200 5spd Slave Cylinder Woes

Geez, thanks for the memories Born Again. I also carried around a similar "emergency slave bleed kit" for several years. My kit included fresh hydraulic fluid. I eventually bit the bullet and tackled...

Re: 2000 LS Drum Brake Spring Configuration (with photos)

The backing plate on my 2000 LS unfortunately doesn't have an access hole anywhere near that star adjuster, making it tricky to retract the shoes inside the drum.

Re: 2000 LS Drum Brake Spring Configuration (with photos)

Thanks. I agree, there's lots of life here on both the shoes and drum on this side......a testament to walking and cycling rather than driving (only 115,000 km in almost 16 years). But given the...

Re: L200 5spd Slave Cylinder Woes

Saturn modified their L Series slave bleeding procedure at least once to correct problems with damaged slave cylinder seals that showed up in early production models. There may be more recent updates...

Re: L-Series manual shift linkage adjustment

Trick to reinstalling drive shafts?

I'm reassembling my transaxle after clutch replacement on my L-series 5-speed manual. The drive shafts were nasty to remove (it took a 4' wrecking bar to remove one side), and they aren't cooperating...

Re: L-Series Flywheel and Pressure Plate bolts

For what it's worth, I bought one of GM's $14 (in Canada) replacement flywheel bolts to compare. It is a lower grade (10.9) bolt from a different supplier. It has a slightly shallower hex head and...
