my rear brake pads need changing and pretty sure the rotors also. I was thinking about swapping a whole new set of rotors and pads in even though my fronts have only 9000 miles on them.

I cant pass up on something like this =) also need a popcharger cleaning. that thing is charcoal black now.. havent cleaned it in almost 10 months. ROFL

Navigation drive removal

Bythebay,

Great job on the videos, you have put together so far. Since you are pretty comfortable taking these apart, I was hoping you could help me with something, I have run into.

My navigation has gone bad and Im pretty sure its the DVD drive. Its located right above the glove box. I have a made a couple of attempts to remove the drive and havent been able to. Do you have instructions on how to remove the center box so that I can remove the DVD drive?

Thanks in advance.

PK

Time is a precious commodity for me these days ...I had to take advantage of the time and go for it. The instructions for the install are pretty dead on. There are a few other things I would add to it though that are not covered in there.

Yeah, belts...mine are cracking

See you Friday
