I did the hand sanitizer trick for the radio knobs, using company hand sanitizer. Shhh.

I investigated the RH turn my TSC Light flashes under power.

Took off the tire and took off the ABS Sensor and rotated the wheel to find my
ABS Tone ring had snapped. So the part has been ordered and waiting for it
so that I can install it.

Now i've gotta go find t50 torx bits so I can take the torque converter off.

Edit: Also, the peg that aligns the starter with the transmission casing was so stuck in there that while I was rubber malleting it out I actually cracked the bit of the trans casing that holds it.

Mr. Failz, Does this mean that you are going to swap a m66 box?

Yes. :twisted:

Seriously though screw the autos on these things. Nothing but pain while it was pre-gravel filled.

Replaced spring seats (Rein), mounts (Lemforder), & all strut hardware on '06 V70 103k. No more clunks & rattles. Struts were fine, thanks Pete & Abscate for advice.
