brilliant red 92x Aero 5MT

I picked up this car in late December, but I've neglected to post pics.  Here are a few...

Re: brilliant red 92x Aero 5MT

Well, I still have the car and have neglected to post up any mods (maybe a bit in some of the other threads). I recently got irritated at the silver spotty wiper blades, so I sanded them down and repainted using rustoleum high heat paint for BBQ's.  smile Didn't take a before pic unfortunately, but it turned out well.

Re: brilliant red 92x Aero 5MT

Nice, I did the same to my wiper arms but got a bit aggressive with the sanding before I noticed the arms are really soft aluminum so they now have a slightly different shape.

How the hell does one remove the arms? I couldn't pull mine to save my life. I assume a puller is necessary?

Re: brilliant red 92x Aero 5MT

Oh man, I haven't looked at this page in forever... again. I never pulled the arms, I just put cardboard underneath and liberally used painters tape.

And now has a suspected spun bearing? This is sad.

Re: brilliant red 92x Aero 5MT

Yeah, I posted in the troubleshooting forum about my likely spun bearing issue.It sounds exactly like this:

Re: brilliant red 92x Aero 5MT

I see, sorry to hear that. There is a possibility your timing belt tensioner is causing the noise, it would sound like a failed rod bearing. There are videos on YouTube for the belt tensioner issue also, may want to look that up as part of your research before you have to pull the motor.
