  5. yea, saw that but also ran across mention of there being a procedure if there is not a reset switch on the motor. I'll admit that I got a little lazy on this and did not crawl through the FSM to see of the R51 pathy take the with or without motor assembly. I had not done any work (replace glass etc) or left the battery disconnected for a lengthy time that I can recall so I was hoping that the limit got screwed up accidentally by some sequence of holding the button too long, etc... otherwise it may be a mechanical failure of the switch itself. For me, it's only a little bit aggravating but the wife keeps calling me when she takes the truck and can't get the window to stay up.
  6. suspended (thought this thread died a horrible death years ago)
  7. Drivers side window, when using auto-up, will close completely then open about 3 inches. I've run across mention that this is a safety feature (so you don't decapitate your cat) and that somehow the window motor has 'forgotten' the upper limit or travel. Does anyone know if these trucks (2005 SE) have the limit reset button on the motor assembly or if the limit is reset through some sort of key/button dance?
  8. Never saw option 2.. Sure, I'd definitely install them. Had new shocks and struts installed in march so I wouldn't even need to fight with rusted bolts
  9. so I was hearing a strange noise coming from my pathy as I drove. It was definitely something related to movement and not engine speed. I put the entire truck up on stands, put it in gear and listened.... nothing. Anyway, finally got annoyed and did a little more troubleshooting. The noise, for the most part, goes away if I put the truck into 4Hi and comes back when in 2wd. I had my wife roll slowly in the street while I walked around the truck and listened... the noise is not more predominant on one side or another. I also made note that there was a 7 to 1 ration of 'clicks' to wheel rotation which tells me it's more on the tranny side (driveshaft etc) than the wheel side (cv joint, axel). Anyone know enough about how the tranny works on these models that can give me an idea of what is making the noise and how big of a pain in the ass it will be to fix?
  10. Tried to slip the rear wheels accelerating from a stop sign on wet pavement. I could almost do donuts with my old Coopers but these Yokohama tires didn't slip a bit. Can't wait to try them on ice and snow.
  11. the socket has a small metal retainer clip in it. There is probably some clever way to get hold of the ends and spread it enough to release the ball but it's easier to just be careful and pry the ball out of the socket. If you want to be sure to protect the glass, unbolt the ball (hold the outer part of the attach point if needed so you can unscrew the ball), then pry it apart or maybe you'll see the mechanism. Putting it back together is just as easy.... make sure clip is in place, grease the ball a bit and snap it together.
  12. outfitted with new rubber. Got a good deal on a set of Yokohama geolander a/t g015's. Not nearly as good of tread as my old Coopers or BFG AT KO's but WAY less expensive.
  13. Mine becomes a radio issue... turn the knob up and the noise disappears
  14. put it up on 4 stands and ran it in 4wd to try to find the tapping I hear when I'm driving (based on wheel speed, not an engine noise). Quiet as a mouse. F#CK! Yanked and pulled on every suspension and exhaust component looking for what is 'loose' and makes the clunking sound on the drivers side when I hit bumps (not just a single thump, it has multiple as if something is loose). Everything is tight. F#CK!
  15. reassembled after replacing my lower ball joint(drivers side) and put the other ball joint (for passenger side) on the shelf until probably next month, Swapped the AT lines under the radiator to isolate the cooler from the radiator and prevent the SMOD.
  16. Glad to hear she's running again. As for the forum.... LOTS of old-timers and wrench-heads in here and I've always seen a fairly quick response from the 'hive'
  17. SO I am departing from Seattle on a cruise at the end of June and would like some feedback on transportation. Flying into SEA-TAC and staying at Cedarbrook lodge near the airport. What's the best way to get to the port? 6 years ago, I rented a car at the airport, shuttled the 10 of us to the port then left the car at the rental place a few blocks inland and walked back down. That was a lot of hassle. Looking for suggestions (or maybe even a volunteer with a van) on how to get 10 people from the lodge to the port and 5 people from the port back to the airport the following Sunday (half our party is splitting off for other adventures). THoughts?
