I removed my grille guard to slap a fresh coat of paint on it... Decided to install those resistors for my led lights I've been putting off for ages... It's great having tail lights that no longer hyper flash.

Changed the oil and filter and replaced the brake pads. Now I have a lot less pedal travel. Feels much nicer. They were screaming for the past week. It got on my nerves. Haha.

That has to be one of the worst sounds (next to a fan belt screaming) a vehicle can make.

Seriously. And I've also got a chirp that sounds like the belt but it isn't. Ive pinpointed the spot, but it is no where near the belt. Ill get a picture of the mechanism in question. I don't know what it is.


EDIT: Went and asked the guy across the street (certified Mercedes mechanic) and he said it was the "california air box". He also said that they go out, but not to worry about it. I want to rip that thing out...
