you should do a write-up with detailed information along with pictures so others can do it themselves. Also I think Isaac will be more than willing to post it in the install section if you do a good job. Heck I'd like to know myself how you did it. Good Job none the less!

I've had a lot of problems with the dealerships in Ga. So I didn't bother to argue I'll just get my hands a little dirty and everything thing will be alright..plus I dont have to wait 10 hours so they can fix it... I'm thinking of posting a install article...What do you guys think? idunno

sorry to hear. the dealership just agreed to fix mine for the 4th time. this time they just changed the belt. they said that it was stretched which was why it squealed. i think it went alright because it doesn't squeak anymore...for now smile
