  1. Rattle near steering shaft

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    It took me a year and a half to find where this rattle was coming from. I was even driving around with a stethoscope that I put on different parts of the dash to try and find this thing. It sounded like it was in the dash - maybe behind the instrument cluster but turned out there is a plastic...

  7. Play in rear axle

    1G Problems & Issues
    I'm suspicious of the rear axle bar section that's directly attached to wheel on either side. I'll spare you the details why. When I grab bar (either wheel side) with my hand I feel about a 1/4 inch of play (wobble). The same bars connected to front wheels have no play at all and they have to...
