      My R is an 06, I haven't seen it in any 04's. Figured it was standard in the 05+. It fills that pocket next to the radio, like a big push button. Push it and it pops out, the wings open up, and...

      I'll have a good look around when I do the PCV service.


      Thanks for the tip! I'll see about some loctite on the bore when I replace the seal. Has anyone else used this method?

      Sadly, my cup holder failed. Plastic fatigued and just fell off at the hinge when I opened it.

      I feel there's some misunderstanding on one side of this or the other, so let's back up and break it down.

      If I recall the axle construction properly, this will simply rip the inner CV joint apart - it's essentially pulling on the boot. Wouldn't recommend.

      I've been having occasional trouble getting mine into 3rd on stock setup, maybe 1 in 10 shifts. Seems like it gets stuck half way into gear, then I back out and try again it'll go into gear. Problem...

      I don't often use mine, cause a drink gets in the way of stick shift. But when I do use it, I want it working.

      On the off chance I have a drink, I usually use the pop out one next to the radio.

      I'm a bit concerned with getting my studs out. There isn't a whole lot of thread there, or working room in some cases, to put a second nut on to jam against and pull the stud... time will tell.

      How do you lose the gasket? Did it blow out? Or did the studs vibe out and drop the gasket and downpipe?

      Got it, thank you! I'll see what the return policy is on the parts and pick a reasonably quantity.

    14. Exhaust Manifold Gasket Replacement - Materials and Method?

      I've got myself quite the exhaust manifold gasket leak. Appears I've blown out gasket 1 and 5 - also, missing a stud entirely on 5 (hoping it's not broken off like lawdogg's was, I didn't check...

      And this, apparently the starter connection can get corroded and cause the immobilizer issue. I've seen this pointed out in a few different posts.
