What haven't I done? Don't ask. How do you all like my new cold air intake on my R ?

It's a hybrid of hot and cold air intake so a warm air intake. Factory is actually a cold air intake as air is drawn from the front of the car. The car is now drawing hot air from the engine also. At speed you'll have more cold air from the front while at idle it's more hot engine air being the holes are closer to the filter. Hope your ECM can keep up and not go schizo. He loves me (hot) he loves me not (cold) :?.

Ack, it never ends. XC is now vibrating during acceleration after replacing my front strut assemblies, which according to my research points to a bad CV. I like the brainstorming in this post on a Toyota forum, because after replacing mine I can tell the XC definitely sits higher: https://www.toyotanation.com/threads/st ... st-9191730


I just replaced the passenger CV a month ago (with a cheapo new Cardone, so not ruling it out completely). I can't really find any noticeable play in either of the CV's. No leaking boots. My mechanic told me that it's mostly up-down play you're looking for on a CV.

Any simple, but surefire troubleshooting methods to finding the bad CV? jonesg' suggestion of spinning a wheel and holding the spring to isolate a bad wheel bearing was genius and made light work of troubleshooting that issue. Looking for a trick like that for the CV!

Put the car on jack stands and let the wheels spin to check for vibrations.

Thanks Mo. I'll give that a shot tomorrow.

I found this old post from vtl and my ground to arch height is almost bang-on to his measurements. The car must have sat a good 2-3" lower than this prior to replacement. https://www.swedespeed.com/threads/fact ... st-7763303
From ground to wheel arch with everything new in suspension: 755 mm front, 745 mm rear.

I was worried maybe my new cheapo quick-struts had the wrong size spring or any other possible issue.

Oil change on the 08 S60 2.5T today. Upon removal of the belly pan I was greeted by a ring of grease being flung out of the driver side CV joint. Gives me some time to plan a purchase, almost did CV shafts proactively when I did control arms and struts last December. Hoping it'll last until the next oil change. Maybe too much high speed driving late this summer... :D No other CV symptoms other than a very little vibration at certain highway speeds.

Other than the CV grease no other issues other than my eagerness to fill resulting in oiling the coil cover... :oops: ...that darn screen.

I had 2 sets of Cardone's in my car last summer. Both had bad vibration right from day one! I returned them to Rock Auto for a refund and bought GKN Loebro's. No vibration. You might want to just replace the passenger side first and see, in my experience this one seems to be the bad one 90% of the time.

My thoughts exactly. I still have the oem one in stock so I’ll try and swap it out. Wife also says the car is making a nasty squeak when turning left now too. Doesn’t sound CV related, isn’t that usually popping?

Chased down a driver's side low beam issue yesterday. Bulb appeared fine and I'd just replaced it this summer. Could get it to light by twisting it relative to the socket. Thought maybe one of the spade connectors was worn/bent and not making appropriate contact. After taking a closer look at the male contacts on the bulb itself, noticed that one of them was slightly corroded. Fitted a new one and all is good...for now.

Oil change week...the kids 02 S60 2.4T today at 185,500 miles. Rotated tires, attempted clearing SRS code with no luck. His car, so left to him whether to repair.

Airbag recall yet to be done, on waitlist with local dealer.

Crappy day here. Put in the oem axle and managed to shear off the head of the abs sensor bolt. Now trying to figure out if I can drill it out with standard bits or if I’m going to remove the knuckle and bring it to the machine shop to remove. I need a frequent flyer card for that shop. Went over to detroit to get new axle and they had none in stock even though it showed on the website. 0/2 today. Big whisky drink and sleep now.
