  1. Damn, I really dig those rims on the first & third shots! 2 & 4 look too much like he****s to me though, 1 & 3 are pretty sharp.
  2. You got me curious about that moisture content meter. Thought I was going to fall down a rabbit hole, but thankfully it's more of a pothole, quite interesting to learn! https://media.supercheapauto.com.au/sca/images/articles/Repl_Brake_Fluid.pdf and http://www.mechanexpert.com/a-full-best-practise-guide-to-brake-fluid-testing/ Though a little part of me feels like I've robbed myself from buying another tool to add to the collection 😛
  3. You sir are my saviour! I'll be making good use of Amayama in the future 🙂 And yep, that is the same as what's in the service manual.
  4. Hi all, I'm going to be replacing the axle oil seals on my ronron, and I'm at a little bit of a loss. The manual for the U660E transmission names the two seals as "no.1" and "no.2" case seals, but no part numbers for them. I've managed to find the seal marked as no.1, but I'm having no joy with no.2 - it kind of looks like they're two different seals since installation uses a different SST depending on which one, but my google-fu is failing me and I can't find any clear proof of such a seal existing (or in some cases there are three or four different seals of differing dimensions). If anyone can shed any light on this particular mystery I will be forever in your debt Cheers,
  5. That's some solid input, and now I'm kinda glad I haven't done it 🙂
  6. Really curious Tony, why do you advise against painting them?
  7. I've been meaning to getting around to doing mine, but I believe for a long-term fix, you'd want to; 1. clean them up with wet sandpaper 2. paint them with a 2 pack gloss clearcoat Not really the quickest fix, sandpapering the oxidisation off won't take long but waiting for the clearcoat to dry will take a bit, but the paper is dirt cheap, and the clearcoat shouldn't run you more than $30. Though if you end up with runs in the clearcoat, that'd require extra sanding and then polishing on top, so potential for the time to blow out a bit 😛
  8. Might be a chance dixie has upgraded his phone in the three years since he had the issue 😉
  9. Yeah, no negatives whatsoever towards daily driving
  10. Good to know, I haven't been contacted so wasn't sure if I'd be covered by it, I'll get onto it now!
  11. That noise is usually caused by a worn coupler, which is located in the snout. However, it's also possible that it's the needle bearings (also in the snout) that are a bit worn.
  12. 7zip is your best option; https://www.7-zip.org/download.html
  13. Could be the tensioner pulley. Maybe take the belt off and give that pulley a wriggle and turn it a bit by hand, if there's play then it definitely needs to be replaced. Hopefully it's that and not a different bearing.
  14. I found the same issue with my '07 ZR6, asked about it here and someone suggested it was a problem with the boot seal. I haven't checked since I gave said seal a bit of nudging, but I really hoped that did the trick. But out of sheer curiosity, does yours happen to also have a sunroof?
