    Door Lock Actuator Replacement

    thanks for some valuable info and as it turns out my actuators started to give me signs of failure today (super hot day in New Orleans!) and so I am starting to gear up to do this. I have a 2000 LX470 and was wondering if anyone knows which motors are needed for this? the ones with the brass...

    Milin 622 WH Portable Power Cube - Power everything all at once? Great alternative to fixed auxiliary battery to power small and medium accessories?

    Quick little video on my new Portable Power Source/Cube. Side comment here, I am not sure why people call these a Solar Power Generator? I guess because you can recharge it via solar panel... To me it's just a big multi input source power bank. Anyway, I go in some details of why I chose this...

    The bumper is tapered toward the back and so i cut back of the pinch weld toward the back but you make a keen and accurate observation and probably you are correct! However as you can see on the photos its not a huge deal to not cut it there. I guess at absolute full articulation (assuming it...

    I went with 80ish I think on mine because I thought 95 on that gauge of bolt was a little excessive to be honest. I don’t think I am going to go back and loosen them at this point.

    Thanks so much and I am glad these help. A couple of things, in one of the video which I am about to re-upload the 4 bolts that hold the swing outs to the base bumpers are supposed to be torqued to 52 ft/lb NOT 95 ft/lb. Ben contacted me to make sure I update that part, he made the mistake in...

    Brittle plastic Connectors usual suspects

    someone suggested this video and it's for sure a great resource. I thought I would share! thanks for your reply. I will have to try to look at these connectors. Right now I am mostly concerned about the knock sensor ones since they are so much of a PITA to get to (well impossible is a better...

    Brittle plastic Connectors usual suspects

    Thanks so much I will take a look. I don't want to look like that guy who doesn't look/search the forum for stuff because I do :-) right now since I am doing the starter and have to remove the intake manifold I will replace the knock sensor connectors because god knows I don't want to have to go...

    Brittle plastic Connectors usual suspects

    I am in the middle of doing my timing belt and a hole bunch of other stuff and in doing so I have to disconnect a bunch of stuff and some of the connectors are pretty much cooked to a crisp after 21 years of faithful service inside the engine bay. Is there a known list of all the major...
