    Not neccessary. It's possible to re & re both strut mounts & bearings without compressing the springs, done it many times. That's...

    Right side is tighter but can also be done without using a spring compressor.

    P2B replied to the thread +25 offset on a 6.5 wheel.
    I run 17x7.5" 32mm offset Audi TT wheels, no issues and I like the poke. 25mm offset should be OK, but 6.5" is too narrow for 215s, let...

    Connect to the common and NC (normally closed) pins. Wire color doesn't matter.

    I spray paint the bolt heads before disassembly and put them back where they were - no alignment needed.

    P2B replied to the thread Car wont start.
    No. If the glow plug light doesn't illuminate briefly when you turn on the ignition, the ECU is not getting power, which means no fuel...

    P2B replied to the thread Possible N75 problems.
    If the N75 output test is smoothly cycling the turbo between no boost and full boost (against the stop), and there is no leak down from...

    I would expect % duty cycle to refer to the PWM waveform, which may not translate exactly to % of available vacuum.

    P2B replied to the thread Possible N75 problems.
    You might try swapping N75s between vehicles. If one of them is not passing 100% of the available vacuum at 0% duty cycle in both cars...

    I grab them with a small pair of locking pliers and wiggle to break the rust bond, then pry with a screwdriver.

    P2B replied to the thread Possible N75 problems.
    The difference in meter readings probably explains it. The ECU sends a PWM (pulse width modulated) signal to the N75, and you have one...

    Sounds normal to me. Turbo should hit full boost at 18inHg, you've got headroom.

    When the insulation in the door jamb cracks it can allow wires to short together and blow fuses. Every time you open or close the door...
