[DML] Re: Misc questions

Man! What state do you live in that they force these inspections... 
Here in AZ all they check is that your vin matches (you should see 
some of the cars on the road here though).... But anyhow..

Your rotors are a simple install. The first thing (obviously) is to 
remove the wheels. From there you will need to remove the calipers 
off of the post that they are attached to (should be 2 bolts of some 
sort holding them on). 

Personally, if your pads are relatively low, you may want to 
consider replacing them too... To expand your caliper, you may be 
able to do it with your hands by pushing the pad back into/towards 
the caliper piston. On a cadillac i owned, I had to use a c-clamp to 
accomplish this... 

Once the caliper is off, the rotor just slides off of the 4 posts 
that your lug nuts screw onto. Put on the new rotor, Fit your 
caliper back over the rotor, put the bolts back on. Put the wheel 
back on, and you should be in business. 

Using the electronic locks? If so, to pass your inspection, you 
could simply disable them by unhooking a wire, and push the locks 

As for your steering column stuff, you can order a whole new set of 
wiper controls, hi-beam/horn arms from dmch and if I am not mistaken 
pjgrady. If that is they way you want to go. To replace this though, 
you are gonna have to pull the steering wheel off (you can get the 
tools for this from most autoparts store)
Have you tried cleaning the connections (they have an eraser looking 
thing that cleans up the metal connections that I have used on a 
trainset) Additionally, have you checked the reverse bulbs? are they 
burnt out? Have you also checked to make sure you have a current 
going to the bulbs. If your light board is hosed, a previous post 
from someone at the pjgrady site, stated that they are on sale right 
now. Please check the site for more details.

BTW jack stands are pretty much a must have. I have ramps, but have 
found that they can be a pain to use as on a completely flat surface 
they can slide across the floor.
