  2. Good man! I just went through all of that myself on my xi, jackstand racecar lol. I recently took the rental for recall. 2018 chevy malibu. Not a bad car to drive in the winter. It understeers like crazy in the snow tho.

    Well a rental is just for fun =P. But on the xi where the dps' a pain in the ass?
     
  4. Honestly not that bad considering what all i read before i installed them. I think the hardest part was getting the vbands to line up properly.

    Yea same thing with mine, luckily for me, my brother in law worked on them before and works for bmw, so having him around honestly made removing and installing under 2.5 hours since were both mechanically inclined hahah

    Walnut blasting however was a real experience for me.

    how does a Popsicle stick find its way in there? haha
     
  10. I have no idea, my assumption is when i had the windshield replaced after thanksgiving, the safelite tech must've had the cowel off and used the stick as a tool, then dropped it and said forget it.

    adefitting.jpg I got this in the mail yesterday. I quickly tried to install it, but seems to not want to fit. Im guessing it needs to be pushed in quite a bit before it can thread into the pvc housing? Waiting on my catchcan to show up next

    ADE, but i figured it out. When removing the factory pvc cap, the green O ring stayed inside the valve cover, so when i tried to put the new one in, it was hitting the oring. Easy enough, took the o'ring out.

    I only found this out when i went to put the OEM pvc back in, and when i removed it, the ring fell out. haha

    Now i have to remove it and shave down the AN part to slip over a 1/2" hose. Nothing local carries a 8an to 1/2" barb in stock.
