  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So here's a little story of my evening: I decided to take on a midnight task of disassembling my passenger door just to take a look around and prep it to replace the actuator in it later today when I picked up the part. Everything was going pretty well. Then I ran into the first problem...

    So I installed Raceland Ultimo coilovers on my '03 RSX-S last night. While installing the coilovers I discovered a bad tie rod end on my driver side, unfortunately at the time, parts stores were closed and I needed to get to work the next morning so I just made it work. This morning, I dropped...

  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've owned the car for a few months and it's always smelled really badly of gas when it sits over night in the garage. I was under the car recently and noticed that the tubes at the rear of the car are gone also the lines in the bay are gone. The throttlebody has the port blocked off. Is it bad...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have a valve cover over at the powder coaters right now, and they are going to do it tomorrow. However, he told me he is concerned about 4 rubber gaskets on the inside of the valve cover - in the spark plug tube holes. He is worried they will melt when the cover goes into the 400* oven. I...

  10. Lighting RSX
    Hey guys, I just got my LEDs from retro-solutions (fast shipping ftmfw). At first, only the passenger side map light was working, now none of them are. Could it be a blown fuse? The halogens won't work in there anymore either. Any help would be awesome, I promise I searched!
  11. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    This weekend, coming off track after a hard 30 min session I found that my right front Wilwood Dynalite caliper was leaking fluid all over... it had sprayed all over the wheel/tire, and the caliper itself was soaked. The large brass fitting(the fitting that the actual bleeder nipple threads...

    I ordered the blazer fog lights and Hid's to go with it complements of Retro-solutions. Now im asking anyone who has done this before how did they mount it exactly? And when I see foglights it comes with a blackcover that goes around it. What is that called and where can I get it from because it...
  13. Canada East
    I saw this on a few other forums, it is pretty much a thread with users that can offer car related help/services to other, rather than having a member getting ripped off. As well as people that need things done to their car during irregular hours. I figured we can use this layout and just quote...

  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have an unusual amount of chatter coming from my top end. The noise is rev dependent. Last summer I had a reputable local shop do a cam and valve train install (skunk2). It's been about 6k miles since. Oil looks good. I guess what I'm asking/hoping for is that there is something I may be...
  17. Problems & Solutions RSX

  19. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    Need a little help trying to figure out how to wire up my ps3 inside my car. I have a inverter, but when I plug my ps3 into it, it blows my cars fuse and not the inverters. This led me to believe that the ps3 just needs bigger wiring from the car. Ok, so I know the inverter works with the ps3...

    Someone with an 05-06 rsx with aspec lip can you please take some pics where the aspec sides connect next to the rear tire. I think this body shop is trying to pull some bullshit. Even if you don't have aspec could you take pics for me. There was a part broken that they didn't fix before...
