    Our rear calipers are "odd balls" and the guys at the rebuild place may not have the replacement parts for the spot where the P-brake attaches.

    The parts wear out and get sloppy and stop sealing properly.








    That's a warranty issue.

    They weren't rebuilt properly.

    Me too! However this will likely be my last year daily driving it. Driveway is steep-ish with no run up at my new house and last week I got stuck trying to get out of my icy driveway. My wife's v6 rav4 went up like nothing was there on all season tires, but my p5 with new snow tires made it halfway, then gave up.

    Sounds like more money than I should spend on my lovely rust bucket. How will I justify getting a Honda Element otherwise :P

    I'm thinking something from a wrecker for $100-$200.

    Would make a nice summer project.

    Well Friday the studs on my pre-cat snapped and my J-pipe was rattling. So I ordered a header, didn*t come in til yesterday. Had the whole weekend of not being able to drive my car, so I put in a new parking brake cable and adjusted my calipers so my parking brake works. I also took apart my center counsel and shortened my shifter leaver 1-1/2 inches and when my header came in I installed it but the egr outlett was a little off managed to bend it just enough to thread the bolt on and today I will be welding my header to the rest of my exhaust. It*s been a fun weekend cannot wait to be able to drive my protege after almost four days.
