  1. I found the partnumber. It's 11588713 Thank you all for your help I'm not a huge fan of anti-seize. Especially the ones with metallic parts (like copper anti-seize) because they often lead to corrosion due to electrochemical corrosion when in use with different metals. And yes, if it would be my old daily driver beater car, then I would do it like this. But with my truck, I want to keep everything in good shape.
  2. No unfortunately no success That would be my last try. The problem is that it is important to choose the right material. Otherwise the bolt will corrode in the manifold, or the heat shield will corrode away around the bolt.
  3. Hi I'm replacing my engine mounts at the moment. And because of that, I had to remove the heat shields. Some of the bolts almost snapped, so I want to recut the threads and replace the bolts. Before I start to search for some universal bolts, I wanted to ask if someone is able to get the original part number from the exhaust manifold heat shield bolts. It's a 2014 Silverado with the 5.3l
  4. Thanks so far. As I have now more free time on my hand, I want to replace the TC. Anyone know "TC Remanufacturing" Torque Converters? For Sonnax, anyone know someone who sells converters with these kits? Someone in a FB group (and boettcher40 here) mentioned " 2014 Cts V/ZL1 converter bolt right up and don’t seem to have the same issues". Anyone know more about that?
  5. Hi I'm starting to get crazy. I have a 2003 Tahoe where I replaced the rear transfer case housing because of the pump rub issue. I also fit the kit to stop this from happening again. Since then, the rear output shaft seal leaks. But it's not the seal itself, it leaks between seal and housing. I replaced it several times now. Tried different manufacturers, tried it with rtv and without rtv. The bearing is new. I also replaced the slip yoke. I'm out of ideas. It seems that the leak comes from the top between the seal and the housing. How can I get this tr
  6. Hi Was there ever an option for automatic wipers? If so, is it possible to retrofit them? Anyone already done that? What parts do you need? Is a new windshield required? The reason I want to have automatic wipers is that I live in the alps where there are a lot of short and long tunnels and the weather changes every few kilometers. So when you're driving in rainy weather you are always fiddling around finding the "right" wiper speed and switching it on and off. It's a 2014 silverado LTZ. Thanks in advance
  7. Hi I've read some horrorstories about the torque converter failing and filling the transmission with metal flakes. As I really don't want that to happen, I'm thinking about replacing the torque converter before it fails. My truck has currently around 115k miles. When I changed the transmission oil and filter at 100k, everything looked fine and I have currently no reason to think it will fail soon. 1. Is it really that common that the converter fails? 2. Should I go for an OEM Converter? Or any other brand? 3. Where can I get stuff like tightening torques, and
  8. I use E85 everytime when in France. 67ct/L E85 is a huge difference to 1.50€/L normal fuel
  9. When you already got factory LED tail lights, then the wiring harness is different. You need to look out for LED tails specifically for vehicles with Factory LED tail lights. Most (as far as I know all of them) aftermarket LED taillights are for cars with NO factory LEDs. It should be doable, but it`s not plug and play.
  10. Did you have factory LED Taillights? You need to plug them into the bulb housing and refit those into the taillights.
  11. So, I`m selling my M3 right now and looking to replace it with a Corvette C6. Anyone ever owned one and/or can tell my something about it? Anything special to look out for? Drivetrain configurations to avoid? How about prices for parts? I`m a mechanic and can do everything by myself, so the only thing that costs me something is how expensive parts are.
  12. Yeah, I talked to morimoto and they told me that this issue isn`t solveable and that I had to live with it. So not that great for a 500$ taillight.

    So right now, all borders with our neighbouring countries are closed. I wanted to visit relatives living in germany, but I am not allowed to leave the country anymore. All schools/universities are closed. Bars and Restaurants have a 50 person limit, but more and more cantons are shutting down these places completely. All Ski resorts are closed and all public places are closed. Normally, if you`re on sick leave, you need a doctors note after three days. The government has risen the limit to 5 days, to free up capacities in hospitals. Also, most of the companies are strongly enforcing that you s

    I`m pretty annoyed by the corona epidemic. I wanted to fly a few days to the US, and now, I can`t get in the country no more. Thankfully my insurance covers all of this, but still, I`d rather have traveled. And now they are closing all borders in europe and shutting down all public events and locations. Now I have some days off work and can spend them sitting at home and looking outside the windows. And all these people buying an endless amount of masks and sanitizer. JUST WASH YOUR HANDS AND SNEEZE/COUGH IN YOUR ELBOWS. Hospitals, Doctors, Nurses and other healthpersonnel need the
