    actually, im having issues logging in to club3g, else, I would have continued a thread i started there. It seems cant log in via firefox, or IE on two different machines. Odd.

    Well, the car is currently in the shop. *high hopes that all goes well*
    I asked about checking all surrounding components, they said they do that by standard.
    I also asked about resurfacing the flywheel, also something they do in the process of changing a clutch they said.
    FLuids will be changed (he said most leaks during the repair anyway so thats also done in the process)
    TOB also changed...

    sounds like they handle all that should be... So it does not seem i have anyhting to worry about....

    I can even see the shop from here......
    *sits back by the window with a 300mm lens stalking the shop* ^_^

    I've heard of other people having intermittent problems. Think it's a DNS issue.

    Try http://205.234.104.182 and see if you can get to the site directly.

    hmm... that ip is not loading for me.
    "There is no website configured at this address."
    I'll try again later.


    Well, im back from the shop! And with good news. The car does not seem to have that slip condition anymore. No noise when out in neutral either.

    And whats more, the take off is *GREATLY* improved! so much that i accidently spinned the tires when going into reverse. The clutch feels totally different. Feels and performs like a whole new car! im impressed with their service. Looks like i found a new mechanic

    *happy*

    Now to take it out for a longer test drive...

    Anyway, a side effect: It seems that the horn is not working when locked with the remote. Also when panic mode is set off, the horn does not activate either... lights flash... and thats about it. I checked the horn from the steering wheel and fuses, and everything seems normal... but no panic mode, or lock confirm horn. wierd.

    That is weird (the IP).

    Horn "Answerback" is a programmable item. Check your owner's manual on how to program it. Defaults to off IIRC and they disconnected the battery so it's forgotten.

    ah! problem solved with the horn!
    Loose/corroded connector.

    sand paper and a new terminal clip fixed it.

    Had that happen to me before, but it happened when I was just using it normally, would wobble. (I've never had the horn answerback turned on)
