    Windshield wiper mechanism (Soft metal) melted by zinc plating

    Just to follow up on this, I made a small puller tool and was able to easily remove the gears. Now I can clean these parts properly before assembling again.

    Windshield wiper mechanism (Soft metal) melted by zinc plating

    Thanks for the reply. I would assume it is possible, just not sure exactly how to go about it. It appears the spline that the gear sits on has been pressed and flared out to prevent it from ever coming off. Was wondering if someone’s done this before and has a trick for getting it off, maybe...

    Wanted: CSI airbox - mounting bracket

    Hmm, yeah I thought about that but I would at least need a very good reference. I already have the csi airbox but the recieving half of the bracket on the airbox has been cut off, it was just mounted to the car with some rubber bushings. I would like to mount it like oem though. Not too...
