hey whats the latests with your rides Hol. ?
that means you've got some actual separation of the butyl sealant... you'll want to call safelite or something and see if they will R&R the glass just to reseal it.I've owned my black crz for 9 years and the god awful windshield whistle got worse over the last year and I think its time I actually do something to fix it 😅 Its so bad now my radio cannot block out the sound and on very heavy rains I get 3 spots over the passenger side where water drips down the INSIDE of the winshield heh...
Wait what? 😆 I wish! I’ve already had a moderate curve in my lower spine since I was like 7 or 8 years old. I go to the chiropractor regularly and have some neat X-rays I used to be able to change my wheels from summer to winter or spend 2-3 hours detailing my car but now I really can’t, because the next day my back will be so stiff… I tend to pay people to do this stuff now or ask my fiancé to pick up my heavy steel wheels for me 😅Scoliosis avoided! Well done. 😀👍
I have the NRG carbon hood dampers and when I dropped the car off I taped a note to the hood that said “caution: open slowly, I have hood dampers.Unscrew them to give yourself more room to work!”OMG! Its really good you didn't do your own valve adj as its a back-breaker. You go lay down, right now!
Yeah normally it'd be weird hearing a service department questioning the charging of labor but makes sense considering the margin of time to complete is probably very thin on a valve adjustment vs other services that can be completed much faster than the book listed time. It's a very time consuming and tedious process, not at all the typical remove/replace maintenance.I have the NRG carbon hood dampers and when I dropped the car off I taped a note to the hood that said “caution: open slowly, I have hood dampers.Unscrew them to give yourself more room to work!”
I must say, the service scheduling people and the service advisor all kept questioning why I wanted a valve adjustment, who said I need one etc.When I pulled into the service baythe service adjuster said “why do you think you need a valv adjustment? Your car sounded really quiet just now”. 🙄 Um, gee idk maybe because I’m at 166k miles and HONDA recommends it be checked at 100k miles! Some friends in the dealership/service business told me they really don’t like to do it because there’s not much money in it for how long it takes.
