The high beam switch is built into the multi-function switch (MFS), so you'll need to replace the whole thing I believe. Chances of it being serviced separately are slim to none. A working one could probably be found at a yard, though they're common problems on these cars so an old one might not las...

Especially considering how effective non-ABS cars are with a decent driver and quality brakes and tires. I wouldn't go to ABS even if it were free and a half hour install.

I was finishing waxing the car and decided to find a good hiding spot for my opener. Took it apart and painted the case flat black, then sandwiched it between the tilt column and dash panel below. It fits as if it were made to be there, the lip on the cover keeps it in place. The gap at the left of ...

You might try using less contrast, it doesn't work so well with black wheels. Makes the wheels look extremely dark, and it's worse since the car is white. Ends up looking overprocessed IMO. Nice car though :thumbup:

ALL metal expands with heat, some more than others, and at varying temperatures. Aluminum (piston) is significantly different than cast iron (cylinder wall) in how it expands. This is indeed why the piston slap in these engines is louder when cold. To the OP: Listen to what these guys are saying, th...

I would recommend using a poly insert on the trans mount. I don't know of any off the shelf options there are if any, but this is nearly as effective and inexpensive. I have the trans insert from PolyBushings and AGP solids, and it works great together. Little extra NVH over a stock trans mount, but...

Somehow this guy seems to be selling exactly what you're looking for. Unless they are different tools for 2.0 and 2.4, but I doubt it.

Don't try to install it without the right tool, that is an item you want to install properly (IMHO).

A press is the ideal way to remove studs. Even a worm style ball joint press will work fine, and shouldn't require removing the hub (though I haven't tried so I can't say). Hammering them out will work fine, but risks tweaking the hub and/or damaging the bearings. For installing, tap the stud to sta...

It being NGC, I would bet that the PCM will learn to adjust for the hole in the TB plate. Within a few days or maybe weeks, it will slowly reduce IAC flow at idle and during off throttle decel until the target idle is back to normal (or as close as it can get it). This is because the MAP sensor will...

Were the vents set to fresh air or recirc when you smelled it? And how close to this time did the headlights act up? Maybe the HID ballasts smoked and the smell came in through the fresh air door.

You would need ABS front axles, rear disc brakes if you don't have them already, the HCU, lines, and possibly a few other odds and ends. I would bet that the network will require a DRBIII be used to flash the modules to match VINs for communication purposes. All of these parts can be pulled at a jun...
