  1. make an adapter with an old plug or cheap compression tool to put air pressure in the cylinder leak will be easy to find
  2. good time to take hubs off and add a bit of grease into the bearings edited to add i know its too late but in a pinch i remember some of those upper strut parts were shared with some jetta and golf models if a volkswagen dealer is close by
  3. i didnt even bother checking mine...they were cheap enough for three i just swapped in new ones (and 2 of them were already busted off by the last owner anyway) i also remember reaming out the passages to make them work better one time i owned a 7.3 diesle ford and was cheap i remember checking them by taking them out and using booster cables,,,you found out quick which ones were still good
  4. how did you determine the glow plugs were not the issue?
  5. has to be a code set if it stays on youll need a scantool that can read the abs system...ive had mixed luck with delphi 150e ...it would read and clear abs/esp codes on my 05 coupe but wouldnt communicate at all with the abs on my 05 cabrio
  6. is there any beeping noises?..and do your brake lights work? just asking because one time i had ice in my brake light switch and it would disable the stability controls
  7. i did it to my plow truck (retrofitted power windows into manual doors) and its work well for when im plowing and need the window open to see the mirror but it just seems utterly ridiculous in such a small car (unless it is one of those kits mentioned above) maybe previous owner had problems with their right arm or back is all i can think of for reasons to add another switch
  8. ddint mean that..i meant previous owner installing a second switch for passenger window when i remember it being very easy to just lean over
  9. weird thing to add into a smart......its not that far to just reach over to the passenger door window switch
  10. pop off the door skin and use a hose in your ear to pin point it or just your hand if its loud enough....has to be a door lock actuator or window motor...i cant think of anything else it could be other than those.....except maybe temperature expansion of plastic
  11. i ended up choosing the equinox (which has since been sold on to another owner)...the kia needed too many repairs to the rocker panels after equinox left i switched exclusively to my f150 but found myself staying local during hunting season due to fuel prices so i searched for something else more suitable for travel and bush trails i am currently fixing up a 2008 awd saturn vue that will be my primary ...and i bought a plow for my f150 so the truck will relegated to work only (so that will also let me dump my other truck that was used exclusively for driveway plowing)
  12. yeah...mb is basically an expensive car wash anytime i was there to pick up parts the mechanics were washing cars lol
  13. covid does not affect my driving habits at all selling my 450 and just using my truck sure does though ...
  14. change the glow plugs mine started just fine down to -30c ..rarely did i ever have to cycle glows twice
  15. inspect for hole on clutch fork while its out
