  • Confirmed RR wheel bearing is broken, not just worn out. (mega play)I would not drive it much further, especially @ highway speed. Some rust to work around nut not alot. TPMS is flashing on arrival. Front bumper skin is popped out of clip on LF corner No visible leaks underneath. Some front suspension light rattle heard when driving. End links are easy to move and struts feel a little splashy. they look to be the original struts.
  • Remove and replace RR bearing assy. Needed 1 new bolt because 1 got damaged on removal due to rust factor. Installed customers RR rotor and pads from his leftover brake kit in trunk.

  • Confirmed code in ECM and ABS (see printout) double checked cam sensor connections. Cleared codes. Traction lamp went out after engine code clear. went into ABS unit as well and cleared the single code. Airbag light on also. Test Drove with live data of cams and both sides read/perform equally. no surging, or lumping idle. Read codes on return and found none pending or active. Put car in rack and did visual inspect of underside and found no leaks and no issues of concern. Test drove 2nd time for longer to confirm that the performance did not change. Both low beam bulbs inop. Recommend oil change with high quality oil as well as OEM filter. It is common for this system to have issues due to incorrect oil, dirty oil or poor filtration from low quality filters. If problems persists, further diag will be required but faults/symptoms must return to be able to check into it further. Customer requested low beam bulbs be replaced. Replaced both with new.
  • Added to engine flush before change. Ran to operating temp @ different rpm ranges, drained while warm. Replace engine oil and filter. Test drove for another 10+ mi, no CEL or running issues returned. Recommend driving vehicle normally and return for further diagnosis if faults or symptoms return. Recommend oil changes at 5k intervals – next change due at 140k

  • Test drove and confirmed noise, sounds like right front corner, only on left turns. Put car on lift for inspection and found new brake pads on DS font only. Brakes are very rusty (all). Removed RF wheel, caliper and brake rotor. Found significant amount of rust and debris behind caliper and rotor pads are VERY low – around 1mm left – suspect rotor is touching caliper. Cleaned and re-installed and test drove. Noise is still present but now is only audible on LF. Removed LF wheel and inspected, rotor is very rusty and backing plate was slightly bent, cleaned out back side of rotor between backing plate, bent plate back into correct position and test drove again. Measured rotor thickness, Minimum spec is 22mm, currently DS measures at 23.4mm. Noise is still present, not audible when car is on rack in air with wheels spinning and turned lock to lock. Stethoscope checked each side and no noise is audible when wheels are not loaded. Found PS rear wheel bearing is VERY loud, DS is also noisy, neither are loose at this time. Noise is still present, was able to recreate in shop and had 2nd person listen outside the car, sounds is coming from LF. Brake pads are down to 1mm or less and bad wear indicator clips are sticking out past pads. Suspect when wheel is loaded while turning clip is just slightly touching rotor. Recommend new pads and rotors – all – due to very poor condition and rust as well as very low pad in LF.
  • Replaced both front pads and rotors. Found 1 bolt on each side for the mounting bracket VERY rusty, replaced 2 bolts on DS with new and used best 2 old bolts on passenger side. Cleaned hubs with wire brush and brake clean before reassembly. Old pads on passenger side had less than 1mm on outer pad and there is wear marks visible on the pad wear indicator clips – likely source of front end noise. After replacing fronts I spun the rear wheels while up in the air, both sides made similar noise to the front. Performed test drive to bed in front pads, ticking sound with wheel rotating noted from both rear wheels leaving the shop, front end sounds quiet. No noise present when turning left or right. After bedding in front pads rear noise went away. Due to condition of rear brakes suspect customer will experience more noises until rear brakes are replaced. Brake pedal is firm and front brakes feel smooth after break in.

  • Found 2 faults stored: P1410 sec air combi valve open – seized P2444 sec air pump ON malfunction Most common cause of the p1410 is a failed combi valve, which will then throw the p2444 fault. Will need to remove intercooler to diagnose which valve is bad, generally recommended to replace both as a pair.

Had to replace all hardware on heat shields. Installed rear exhaust and both mufflers with new gaskets. No exhaust leaks audible after installation.

  • Checked oil level before draining – oil level was at bottom of dip stick (~1L low). Changed engine oil and filter. Used 4.6L of full synthetic on refill.
  • Timing belt is due soon – recommend doing sooner rather than later. Serpentine belt has very minor cracking visible. Front tires worn – rotated front to back – all 4 tires have accelerated inner edge wear. Front shocks are leaking. Lower rearward control arm bushings are cracking but are OK for now.

  • Removed wheel with broken studs. 4 studs had broken off, 1 lug nut was still on. Remaining lugnut came off but was not smooth, found internal damage to threads on nut. Stud had slight damage to threads but was able to repair threads on stud. Replaced other 4 studs with new and installed 5 new lug nuts. Removed the lug nuts from the 3 other wheels, none where loose or damaged. Torqued all lug nuts on all 4 wheels to spec. Checked the torque on all 4 wheels after test drive, none where loose or required further tightening. Checked tire pressure on all 4 tires, DS where both over 40psi, PS where both at 38psi. Set all 4 tires to 35 psi and reset tpms. TPMS module had a fault stored for irregular speed, likely a result of the rear wheel coming loose on the hwy. No faults stored in engine ECU. Checked oil level – good.

  • Verified customer complaint, horn does not function. Pulled faults: ABS C1422 VDC interupption for engine convenience C1424 ECM TPMS Tire pressure low (all 4 tires) AC B14A1 Sunload sensor circuit open or low Power lift Gate B2501 PRG ECU malfunction B2512 Damper breakage In BCM checked for input/ouput signal from horn, when operating horn button no output signal is being sent. Using scan tool was able to command horn on – horn functions without issue. Recommend new horn button, if horn still non-op with input repaired then suspect BCM module internal issue. Checked engine oil level – OK. Found non oem filter and quick lube sticker on window – recommend OEM filters and better quality oil for future changes. Oil leak or residue from messy out change/top up under oil fill and on timing cover etc. Recommend full engine clean top and bottom to inspect oil leaks. Looks like both valve cover gaskets are leaking oil. Exhaust, undercarriage and suspension all look OK. Brake pads and rotors are in good condition with good pad life remaining. Lower rearward control arm bushings have started to crack and tear slightly. Right side tires both low – front at 25 and rear at 28 – set all 4 to 35psi and reset tpms.
