that actually made perfect sense. Dire spelling and grammar, but what do you expect?

If you change your suspension in these cars you need a specific strut spreader tool to release the strut knuckle. Speedway didn't have one, they phoned vw canada the tool was $40 and $100 to ship it. I'll let you take that in for a min. I asked around on the local vw boards if anyone had one I could borrow luckily someone did, the part is only the size of a drill bit or a pen cap its small as hell. $140 for one of those? I would have flipped.
Ya just gotta improvise, a flat head screw driver bit (#1) works great for the strut spreader tool..and it's only $5!

The timing chains in the VR6 engine are a real PITA I can attest to that!

But nothing comes close to changing the water pump in a Chrysler Lebaron!

Yeah, and no one wants to touch doing the plugs on our cars.

haha theyre easy to work on, hard to figure out the vaccum lines once theyre all burnt though haha

any 4x4 clutch job ( eg exploders ) took me 4 days to get the fucker done, all the undercar stuff ( minus the feul tank ) had to come out, the slave is IN the trans so all the clutch assemby had to be removed form cab and firewall...

short of tourching the truck andclaiming theft it was easy lol

daihatsu hi-jet mini truck

1.spend 35-40 mins to locate the "problem"
2. decide best course of action is through the top
3. remove ac line support brackets and gently persuade ac lines out of the way.
4. get 1/4 drive ratchet and 10mm socket elbow deep and undo a 2" long bolt 1/16 of a turn at time to remove overflow bottle
5.repeat step 4. on the second bolt
6. place jack under radiator and support while removing rad support bracket to get overflow bottle out of the way.
7. fight at connector to remove from push on style on floor board.
8. remove main fuse

2 hour job to replace the fucking 50 amp main power fuse!

ballz!

actually if I remeber correctly ( though I may be wrong) there is a pin on the top pf the trans where teh hose goes in.. you pull the pin and you don't have to rip all the other crap out

as for the honda and axle thing.. I had to do that today! except the guy I was working with was freaking out about taking out the axle .. he ran off to phone the boss... I got it out under the manifold to the other side of the engine bay and between a cable (shifter I think.. I never looked) and a heater core hose LOL ... he came back going on about how we might be able to get the extra time from the customer and I just shruged "I'm done already "

this ofcourse was after the womans Boyfriend called the shop told us we were totally wrong, the alternator couldn't be the issue etyc etc etc..

the CARS are fine.. the CUSTOMERS are the PITA!!!!!

QFT.

Had to replace the padiator in my friend's after she rear-ended a truck and got a trailer hitch through her grille. Worst rad job I've EVER had to do. Took almost 3 hours in and out. Compare that to the 5-10 minutes it takes on your typical Honda.

Oil pan gasket on a 1982 Celica Supra. Damn oil pan only sits about 1/4 inch from the steering rack.

Trans filter on the new ford escapes. Just... bad lol
