Sounds like progress. Any luck on getting the crank pulley swapped?

We swapped out the frowny face mount today because I was sure that's what was causing vibration. Oh. My. Goodness!!!! What a difference!! I cannot believe how super quiet everything is now.

Final wet sand with 3000 grit sad paper and then hand polished the driver side mirror. Passenger mirror is next

First bit of polish:

Finished! IT"S SO SHINY


Though now, I'm going to freak at any little scratch and rock gouge...

Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

With the help of Nekomimi and following the procedure on Richpin's video, I took off the new drive belt and re-installed it. It's tight in there! If you try to do this, you'll definitely want an extension for the 14mm wrench. I didn't have one, so that made it a bit more difficult, but I got it done. Couldn't have done it without Nekomimi's help, though. We checked the pulleys, battery cables, PCV, and a few other things. Thank you, sir!

Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Replaced the fried ICM in my sister's '02 SL2 with a new AC Delco one from RockAuto. After clearing the flooded engine and fluttering the gas pedal a bit I got the car started. Once the idle stabilized I let it burn off the gas sitting in the exhaust and made sure no SES codes got thrown before I took it for an hour long drive. All's good!

Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Today, I reinforced the armrest on the inside of the driver's door with wood. The white plastic that gives it its shape had cracked/broken in several places, and had split the gray vinyl(?) covering. The wood pieces, attached to the unbroken parts of the white plastic with drywall screws, restore the armrest's rigidity nicely.

Last year, I reinforced the flip-up door to the center console with wood for the same reason, the same way except I attached the wood directly to the hinge.

I changed the full synthetic Walmart Super Tech 5w30 oil with full synthetic Walmart Super Tech 5w30 oil. The white purolator oil filter from Walmart was replaced by a white Purolator oil filter from the same Walmart where it sat next to the previously mentioned oil filter on the same store shelf.

Oh by the way, my 1997 SW2 sits smack dab in the arithmatic middle of the S- series Wagon book shelf.
