Re: Minnesota Saturn S-Series Car Meet

Good times. The last time I was at a Saturn meet in Minnesota was back in the late 1990s.

Re: Stolen 96 sl2 cut wiring under steering column

If itís just one or two wires you should be able to color match and solder them together and wrap with electrical tape. I see two yellow wires that could go together, but I also see a third yellow...

Re: Clutch Pedal Bushing

Best bet is junkyard, Iím curious if the brake pedal has the same bushing and you could use one from there if you donít find a manual in the JY, but youíd have to check and see.

Out of the car,...

Re: New Clutch, Possible Issues?

Need to actually measure the clutch fork travel as the next step in diagnosis. Since clutch, flywheel, and master/slave hydraulics are new, and the main suspect currently is the hydraulics that may...

Re: New Clutch, Possible Issues?

My first thought is air in the line for the master/slave cylinder. Iím with fetchitfido in that the master/salve assembly is not installed correctly. The slave cylinder needs to be lined up correctly...

Re: Odd sunroof leak

It's the first I've heard of this type of problem and it's been a while since I've looked at a 2nd gen sunroof. One thing you could do is test by pouring water into the sunroof tray and see where it...

Re: Window + Motor Question

The rubber in the window frame is called weather strip, probably have to get it from a junkyard.

A tip I learned from OldNuc: use silicone spray on the weather strip in the door frame so that the...

Re: Odd sunroof leak

Speculation on my part, check where the drive cable enters the channel where the guide moves to see if there is a seal that has disintegrated. If the moonroof tray is filling up with water and not...

Re: Sway Bar Bushing Replacement

That is the split-type control arm to sway bar bushing which is much easier to install, you probably wonít need the metal insert. By the looks of it, the Moog K8436 is the press-in type control arm...

Re: Unsafe feeling front end

A couple of things I can think of:

ē I'm surprised that alignment shop didn't try to sell you camber bolts, most chain shops don't know that it's just the strut to knuckle bolts that adjust camber...

Re: Help! Timing Chain Cover

That bolt looks like this, the step OldNuc is referring to is what allows the movable guide to pivot. While the guide and bolt are off the engine, test fit the bolt in the guide and make sure it...

Re: Am I screwed? (Sway bar bushing)

That works, once the head is off that bolt it comes right out.

Itís possible a socket (instead of a box-end wrench) will reach in the frame to hold the nut while the bolt is tightened, but turning...

Re: Am I screwed? (Sway bar bushing)

There is an oval-shaped access hole in the upper side of the subframe to access the nut, no need to cut the frame. The hole is not big enough to get a vise grip on it for removal if spinning, but...

Re: Am I screwed? (Sway bar bushing)

When this happened to me I ground the head of the bolt off and I just punched it out from the outside. I can't remember all the details, but I remember trying to hold that inner weld nut still, and...

Re: ABS wheel senosr bypass.

I can't remember off the top of my head if the knuckle has to come off or not to change these out (probably not), but I've drilled out the remains of the old sensor and installed a replacement. If it...

Re: Nifty Shifty

I actually used bicycle inner tube as bellows, and it fell apart after time and contributed to the gumming up of the cables as it got older and was rubbing up against the cable, so I no longer use...

Re: Alignment Help

Find a different shop that specializes in alignment, or at least get a second opinion. You donít need camber bolts because the front camber is adjusted with the strut to knuckle bolts. As for the...

Re: One thing you wish Saturn had done.

1st gen SC2 headlight covers made out of the same plastic as the body panels so they donít rust through.

Re: Anti-sway bar snapping noise

That explains the rust, by the looks of the end of the bar where the bushing was it did not have a lot of life left. Yes, mine separated while it was on the car, and they make noise as the end moves...

Re: Anti-sway bar snapping noise

When mine went it was clunking back and forth and you could easily see the difference off the car, but like Oldnuc says you may not see it unless it is on the car. Since you are in Texas and not in...
