Sat july 26th, got the engine pulled with the bad tranny. Inspected clutch, everything looked good but I replaced the friction plate for safe measure.
Got new seals in replacement tranny.
Sunday july 27th got to the garage at 1pm, started working on the car. Mind you we started this day with the engine and tranny on the floor out of the car.
At around 3:30 we made a run for car parts, 2 engine mounts, and tranny fluid. Got back at 4:30. 7:30 I was able to drive the car, only to hear a terrible grinding noise. Turns out it was the wheel bearing.
Tonight, july 31st, got the wheel bearing installed. Took it for a 15 mile test run. Runs and drives great. Only a few issues left on my to do list
things I know how to do and will get done: replace passenger side mirror, put tranny brace back on that was forgotten, adjust camber on struts, put plastic covering bs back into place.
Things I don't know how to do, get the wipers working.
The wipers were working perfectly fine when it was parked in February. The fuse is good but they still will not work. Any ideas? I am so close to finally being finished with repairs just need a hand through the last 5%
I am about $540 into this repair and I hope I don't have to spend much more. And I am doing all of this not even for me. Doing it for my brother so he has a car to drive in the next week or so. Thanks in advance for the help again.
