Had a brain fart first time I tried and I destroyed the parking hardware (should have lifted the brake rotor a little when I removed it).At least it should be a simple fix. The only hard part while on the road is finding a place to take the old fluid from the bleeding process plus the open jar that remains.
Yeah, that's a high risk, no matter what, especially with the kind of environments you drive in. My rear drum hardware on my Southern New England van when I replaced my hub was so rusty, I thought it was going to snap. It's probably way less frustration to just replace the hardware rather than reusing the old stuff. While I don't like throwing money at a car, it at least resets the age clock on those parts which definitely degrade and cost little to replace.Had a brain fart first time I tried and I destroyed the parking hardware (should have lifted the brake rotor a little when I removed it).
That's a minor dent. No rocker involed.Does that door dent extend down into the rocker? I can't tell because the blackberry (I think) is in the way. A junkyard door, bumper cover and taillight lens will fix her up nicely. If you can find parts from a car that's that color, you can probably even skip the paint. If it extends into the rocker, though, you'd be looking at a structural repair or just having it look not-quite-right. Otherwise, the car looks to be in remarkably good condition for a 2008 vehicle.
Are you kidding? ‘89 Cressida can’t keep up with ‘02 Camry.Do you think which car is faster: this 2008 avalon, or a 1989 Toyota Cressida?
I can't imagine a Sienna going 137 mph!!! Maybe on the salt flats on a calm day with a full roll cage. After about 90, it starts to get a little uncomfortable and the handling becomes touchy, but that may just be due to the terrible condition of our road up here.Are you kidding?
