Re: Suspension play problem? Help please!

Another possibility is for the offside tire to be a tiny bit unbalanced. When the tire is warm it could soak-up more of the vibrations, on cornering the lateral dynamic load could drown it, and it could manifest more at certain speeds through resonance (and go away or lessen at higher speeds). Is a ...

Re: Back wheel out of line

Could be an optical illusion of some sorts. Get the wheel geometry checked (including camber..etc). Also look for strange wear patterns on the back axle wheels, if this has been going on for some time there's bound to be some difference in wear. Also see if the tires are the same size/make If all ch...

Re: Full size spare limited to 50?

Also don't forget to grab torque wrench if planning to install the tire yourself.

Re: Full size spare limited to 50?

Is a precaution: - spare tire may be forgotten to be changed in 6-8 years time. By then, the rubber compound may have become fatigued, and full speed could result in a blow-out - spare tire is also over-inflated to combat the slow deflation over the years. Without pressure gauges to regulate the pre...

Re: R4 retrofit navigation?

One can get GPS without Onstar.

Re: Imtermitant rough idle + EML light on

Some other possibilities: * Partially plugged fuel injectors * Dirty air filter (think you can simply pull it out from the casing, put everything back and test the engine for 2-3 minutes to see if this solves the issue) * positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve can become dirty * engine wear - wi...

Re: Bluetooth disconnects when plugging to charge

I believe this can be fixed, but it requires few things: 1. accept that if you want to download/upload files from the phone, when connected to a PC, that you will have to dig through deep phone settings 2. accept to dig through the settings again, to revert the changes for when you want to go to the...
