Re: 96 855t, Rounded caliper bracket bolt, front left.

I'very had success with WD40 and heat before. I didn't have any PB Blaster on hand. Should went and grabbed some. I installed the new caliper on the old bracket. Not sure if I'm gonna send the new bracket back for the core charge, or keep it if I can somehow get that bolt off someday. Eventually I'l...

96 855t, Rounded caliper bracket bolt, front left.

Bout to kick the car off the jack stands over here. What was supposed to be a 1.5 hour job has turned into a nightmare, with the sun about to set in 45 minutes. Been hitting this bolt with wd40, heat from a propane torch, my 2 foot breaker bar, and I just rounded the bolt. Aside from taking the whee...

Re: New front brake caliper, bad piston seal??

Well, good news is that I reseated the piston boot. The bad news is that I can't for the life of me loosen up the top bolt on the caliper bracket. I'm on my way to get a torch and hit it with some heat. It's soaking in WD40 right now, but if this fails, I'm not sure what I will do...leave the old br...

Re: New front brake caliper, bad piston seal??

Is there a way to push out the piston without an air compresser?

I reconnected the caliper to the brake line to stop it from leaking. Can I push it out using the brake pedal?

New front brake caliper, bad piston seal??

Hey guys, I'm replacing my front brake calipers today, and got some reman from FCP. Looks like the piston boot/seal isn't seated properly on the front right one. I'll attach a picture. If I go ahead and install it, will it reseat itself or am I just asking for trouble? Is there a way I can reseat th...

Re: 96 855t, ABS/TRACS lights, weird buzz and pedal feedback

Can I clean the reluctance rings and ABS sensor with carb cleaner? Or just hitch a ride to autozone and grab some brākleen? I checked out the sensor connections and they seem fine. Is there a way to clean the sensor itself without removing the calipers? The left front bolts would NOT budge. May have...

96 855t, ABS/TRACS lights, weird buzz and pedal feedback

Hey guys, been meaning to post about this for a couple weeks, just been super busy. The ABS and TRACS Off lights have been coming on in my car intermittently lately. The strange thing is that I don't think it's the sensor, because occasionally when driving, I'll hear a buzz, sorta sounds like a duck...

Re: 96 855T Need to reseal cam cover

Thanks Erik, I'll check that out. So just a reminder, when pulling the cam cover all I really need to do is loosen the timing belt via the tensioner, remove the airbox and intake piping, the CPS and Dist. Cap, roto, spark wires, plugs, move the fuel line and I'm good to go right? I'll need to take t...

Re: EGR/Non-EGR intake manifolds, v70's years?

I'm really just looking for a peppier throttle response in the 3k and under RPM range off the line. So if I find a Non-EGR NA intake, will I still need to tap it for the vacuum lines? Seems like 6 of one, 1/2 dozen of another. Either I have to drill for the vacuum ports, or bore for the throttle bod...
