  2. Can't remove caliper bracket bolt!? - 08' EX

    Suspension and Brakes
    The front brake caliper bolts are torqued at 80ft-lbs from factory. Since it's your first time loosening them in about 10 years, they will be extremely tough to remove. Definitely, use penetrating fluid. Then a breaker bar. If that doesn't work, use a torch on the bolt to break down the seized...
  3. Mobil1 Annual Protection (20k mile) oil

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    If you do try it, make sure you check the oil level. Just because the oil can last 20k miles, it won't mean you won't lose oil during that period.

    The only way to see if it is a starter issue is by removing it and having Autozone diagnose it for you. Autozone does free battery and starter checks.

  19. Correct cowl top assembly?

    Inside and Out
    Off topic, but I painted mine using Rustoleum trim and bumper paint. I did the paint job on 2014 and the cowl still looks the same. The only thing to look out for when painting the cowl is to make sure the rubber parts are masked. You can save more money if you paint it. The new one will fade...

    I have 17x8 OZ Allegeritas (15.8lbs each) on 245/40/17 Super Sport tires. I can curl each wheel/tire with ease. Not only that the car feels better when accelerating/decelerating, steering is also improved.
