Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

My front wheel bearing arrived today from Germany it only took 4 days to arrive,so I fitted it this afternoon quite a simple job as I have had it all to bits before so it did not put up a fight.that is the right hand side front and rear done now,left hand side are both good,a bit strange.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

In normal use low oil pressure is quite rare,have you changed the oil filter recently as it could be a dodge filter restricting the flow.

Re: Changing lower front arms

That looks like a real fight,would it be worth taking all the bolts out of the rear suspension and coating the bolts with copper grease,I did all of mine about 5 years ago and have had no problem with seized bolts since.

It is magnetic on to the disc, I have just tried it on a vertical peace of steel and it reads the same on both sides,not scientific but a good start,think I might check the markings with a pertractor as I have no idea if they are right.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

While I am waiting for my second wheel bearing to be delivered I thought it would be a good idea to take the suspension arms off clean them and paint them,also ordered a pair of drop links as mine look a bit ropy. I took the coil over out and stripped it,cleaned it,the powder coat on the spring was ...

Just a heads up for you Mark :thumleft:

Four of us have booked the Nurburgring on Tuesday 6th April, if you want to drive and see us :P
Thanks for the offer Nigel,I think the cost and time away from work will rule this out for me,which makes me sad and a bit envious of you all.

Re: Coilovers for RX8?

Hi
I have bc coilovers they are good quality,probably a bit harsh on poor roads .very good on smooth roads and the track.
The problem with recommending coilovers is everyone wants different things from them,first thing is budget and work from there and how much track use they will get.

Re: My new to me RX8 has been sitting for a nearly a year, next steps?

Hi.
Make sure battery is fully charged,after you have taken the plugs out take the fuel pump fuse out and turn the engine over to make sure it is not flooded and it will build oil pressure.
Good luck mark
