Default Double Wrench Service


Okay guys, it's time for a double wrench service. Considering this car is an 05 just about everything on this list needs to be done, and since I have no record of it being done before. The change of oil and lubing of hinges and the sort is no problem. ( I kind of hope my brakes are worn and I need new ones (rotex gold here I come ) Here are my questions for now. What am I looking for when I do these steps?
Inspect condition of front axle ball joints and rubber boots.
Inspect condition of steering components and rubber boots.
Inspect condition of accessory drive belt.
Check condition of driveshaft flex discs (50,000 miles or 4 years)
If you have a picture of these bolts it would help me out alot
Retighten steering locking bolts (50,000 miles or 4 years)

Alot of this list is a to be done this year type of list, so expect a few more question and I know I'm going to be using the spark plug how to as well thank you for whoever posted I'm truly in debt to you. I'll document any and everything I do so we can have an extensive how to maintain your crossfire by the end of this year. BTW it's been awhile since I've been under this car so alot of this may jump out at me.

do you have a garage? if you dont again your welcome to use mine. ill call jhm2k over and we can help as much or as little as you want!
when i did my 40k service i did coolant oil tranny and filter and rear diff along with brakes and full fluid flush.
i have the diff pump to fill the diff and a motive power bleeder for the brake flush.
you will need 15 qts of 50/50 mix coolant filter and gasket with i think 8 qts syn. tranny fluid and 9 qts oil and filter. i used mobil 1 for all the fluids except brake and coolant. there i used motul blue and m/b coolant with distilled water for the mix

ball joints steering is checked for excessive play and rubber boots for tearing
acc drive belt (serpentine ) for cracks and missing pieces and excessive wear grooves
i used akebono euro pads and really like them. zero dust and the only squeal is a little one upon backing. all in all very quiet, and wear like iron

Cool beans, I'll do some research. Will I be able to perform all checks and just reset the FSS on my own? Don't wanna pay a dealer to check my wiper fluid

What's your brand? When I come over, I'll bring some suds. It's the least I can do. You like German beers?

I glanced up at the list, and the majority of it... I've already done it! This, of course done during the first week of admiration/ownership

All fluids are great, oil change wouldn't hurt, all components are in (fantastic) working order. And I've got the manual trans so no need for fluid changes.

In fact, the ONLY gripe I have about the car is the passenger pull handle. Dreaded peeling issue (common problem among X-fires). Kim noticed it the other day, and sure enough, there's excess metal sticking out from the seam. Could cut someone if they're not careful.

Oh, and the engine bay is absolutely filthy. I need to do the Simple Green mod very soon...

When you say garage do you have a lift as well? If you're not busy this weekend I'll take you up on that offer.

I'm planning on ordering one soon, as I don't want to jerry-rig it... My driver's side is fine though...

Have you already changed them? What's the easiest way to remove them?

Yeah I changed them Christmas Day, Just pull real hard.
j/k
I used a small flat head screw driver to seperate the two sides, then a... allen wrench I think to unscrew the two bolts holding them onto the door. Then it was just a careful unhook of the clips and pull. (slightly frustrating, but take your time and it's easy)

Check condition of driveshaft flex discs (50,000 miles or 4 years)
Retighten steering locking bolts (50,000 miles or 4 years)

I am wondering exactly what to do for these two items

Replace dust filter
Also, I want to make sure I am not missing a filter somewhere, the only ones I know about (or have changed) are the 2 intake filters and the cabin filter. Are there are more or do they simply describe the cabin filter as a dust filter?

Thanks!


What mods?

I'm almost positive this is referring to the cabin air filter.

1) Move the ignition switch to the “RUN” position

2) Within 4 seconds of moving the ignition switch into the
“RUN” position, press the reset button for the trip odometer
twice within one second The display for the FSS service
request is activated for 10 seconds

3) During the 10 seconds the FSS service request is displayed,
move the ignition switch to the “OFF” position
The FSS service request will continue to be displayed

4) Press the reset button for the trip odometer and
hold

5) Move the ignition switch to the “RUN” position

6) Continue to press and hold the reset button for the trip
odometer (about 10 seconds) until the audible signal
sounds and the new start distance appears in the display
The tool symbol should disappear at this time

Be sure when you do this that the key is turned all the way to the run (on) position - not the accessory position or start position - otherwise it doesn't reset. It is very easy when doing the reset to think that you are at the run position when you have only reached the accessory position.
