    Hopkins 7 Blade Towing to OEM

    Ring out the OEM connector and then identify pin 3 (tail lights/parking lights, +12V when you turn them on for the truck wiring) to get the proper orientation. Label the OEM wires with tape and markings. Then just match up with the wiring diagram with that Hopkins part. Solder AND secure...

    rain leak dripping passenger side by glove box

    That specific area is known to rust at the lip where the windshield sits and mates to the OEM windshield seal. You can try dropping that corner of the headliner and gooping the crap out of everything, but the rust will continue, and the gap will probably grow.

    LX Owners = BMW owners?

    BALLSY motor. Unbelievable carbon buildup. Thing was just as quick to 50mph as my old E60 M5 6mt. Waaaay better than the 2.0td that replaced it.

    Need help identifying growling/chirping sound.

    THE most reliable you can make it is to park it and unplug the battery. Probably not an option though?

    AHC wont raise after battery out

    Unhook the trailer, adjust torsion bars to get AHC pressures in/near spec, install rear spring air bag inserts for towing. /thread

    Must you cuddle and caress it too?

    LX Owners = BMW owners?

    Buy the $250 Schwaben diagnostic tool and get button cover protectors. Best to immediately bond with the tool (perhaps some tender cuddling and caressing) since you'll be using it often and it will save you $$$$ in the long run.

    02 LC Deploys Brakes for No Reason

    Was it the VSC light or the "vehicle looks like it is sliding back and forth driving forward" light on the dash? From experience, the latter can be due to a loose wheel bearing.

    The ABCs of AHC - How to Measure, Flush, and Adjust all in one place

    This is normal BTW on every AHC equipped Hundy I've come across. I've always had to use a 2''+ long cheater pipe on the drivers side.

    Victory bumper install write up with pics - disappointed

    It is a shame it got to this point, but let's not lose sight of a key statement made by the vendor, that if in fact true, speaks volumes to me. The vendor offered to provide a refund before installation, and the buyer refused and proceeded anyways. Let this be a lesson to all by quoting Sam...

    Nakamichi Update - '99 LX 470

    Don't forget the data-capable 90 degree USB adapters to use on the back of the HU to avoid crushing the end of the cable back there.

    AHC question for the pros

    I would not sweat 1/4" height delta on the front fender to hub center distance. IMHO that "spec" needs plus/minus 1/4" tolerance anyways.

    It's true

    99 LX470 simple replacement head unit....suggestions?

    Yes. as long as you also have the appropriate bracketry to mount to the OEM mounting points inside of the dash. This is true, but it is flat on the back side. It would be trivial to buy a single DIN cover and sticky tape or glue it in the right spot.
