    Guide Permanently fix the "no A/C on fan speed 2/3" problem

    Can you guys look at what I did and let me know if I did the wiring/soldering/connecting properly? I am a little nervous about completing this but I am desperate to fix this because everything else I've done such as soldering wires to the fan switch, changing out the blower motor resitor and...

    Sway bar link lengths

    Never mind.. answered my own question. It will have a big impact on the alignment since it is forcing/pushing the wheel more forward. Back to buying replacements.

    Sway bar link lengths

    So I bought what I guess is the non-sport rear sway bar link length because it is 8.5-8.75 inches and I just noticed the ones on my rear suspension are 7.5 inches. Im replacing the strut units so will this make a significant difference with ride quality/stability? Im going to get the car...

    Stabilizer bar, bar link, bushings questions

    Hey Everyone, This weekends car project entails replacing both rear strut assembly units because the rear passenger strut mount is completely shot. Mechanic wanted to charge $1000 to get the job done so it looks like I am teaching myself something new instead. I ordered two Monroe rear struts...

    Solution To Flickering Fan Speed 2 Or 3 A/C PART 2

    I finally got around to trying this and it didn't appear to change much for me unfortunately. :/ I cut the black housing back, ensured the pig tail wires were firmly connected to the male contacts and then soldered them. Still issues with fan speed 2 and 3 and AC when the car is turned on.. I...

    Guide Permanently fix the "no A/C on fan speed 2/3" problem

    I am going to give this a try this weekend or next week. I tried the trick where you cut the black housing to expose the male contacts on the fan switch and connected/soldered the wires and it didn't change anything :/ (Still issues with fan speed 2 and 3). Living in Florida this AC issue can be...

    Aftermarket Radio Install Questions

    Hey everyone, So I finally put money down on a pioneer aftermarket radio and replacements speakers. I've never done this kind of project before and I am not the most knowledgeable when it comes to wiring... (nervous) I purchased the Mazda Protege5 wiring harness and used crimp butt connectors...

    AC issues

    I had the same issue and basically all I did was unplug the cable from the switch module that the fan speed switch is connected to and plugged it back in. Speed 4 randomly started working again.. I know that's not the best answer so I am hoping someone else here can provide a better one. I've...

    Car drifts to the right

    Find out the issue. The tire shop that did the 4 wheel alignment basically didn't do any alignments or they just sucked and didn't know what they were doing... I took it to another shop and they were surprised with how off the specs were on all wheels. They did a proper alignment on all of them...

    Rear Caliper Adjustment Screw Allen Key Size?

    Thanks for the photos pcb. I finally around to messing with the caliper again and it definitely needs to be replaced now. The adjustment screw feels like its seized in place.. The car has 150,000 miles on it so I guess it was time for that caliper to be replaced.

    Rear Caliper Adjustment Screw Allen Key Size?

    Hey Gang, What size Allen key should I use to turn the adjustment screw on the rear calipers? Feeling pretty defeated after I spent almost 2 hours replacing the pads and rotor on one wheel only to basically feel like I stripped the adjustment screw. I had undo everything and install the old...

    Timing Belt TDC Problem

    Nothing on the cam shaft sprockets align to indicate TDC. The closest I can get is aligning the I on the intake cam shaft to the E on the exhaust cam shaft, but the crankshaft appears to be at approximately at 345 degrees, not 360 degrees TDC. The engine still runs... and Im not sure how after...
