i dug into this a little more. i was wrong. this rail (red part) has a lot of movement at the end of the part it slides into (green) at the rear of the seat. from what i can see, there was not bolt or adjustment for this piece. it looks like it has a roller of some sort and it just slides right into green part. i'm not sure if this is something i can adjust or if i need a new seat rail.
Wooooooo, i worked on the car this weekend! i removed the intake manifold and the other appurtenances along with that yesterday. it was actually easier than i thought, even with those 2 stupid nuts in the center of the IM behind everything else. not quite sure how i will get those back on there, but i'll cross that bridge when i get to it.
the main reason for removing the IM was so i have more access and a little more working room to replace some heater and cooling hoses, install my type r oil cooler, and to reinstall the powersteering and a few other items i'm sure i'm forgetting.
not a huge update really, but it is to me considering i havent really turned a wrench on this car in what seems like forever. also working on a new timeline for this car, always having to adjust that lol
i started to remove the factory 215K mile fuel line from the filter last night and broke 2 rusted bolts on the firewall. doh!
i also never realized what a spider web of coolant hoses there are under this manifold. this is my first time removing it. I'm willing to bet they all have 215K miles on them as well. i didnt grab a pic of the actual piece i found, but i found the part online. and...it is discontinued. this piece is all rusted up on my car. i'm not sure what the heck to call this piece, i'm searching ebay to see if anyone has one on there.
it comes up as this: 19504-P72-A00 PIPE B, CONNECTING..........DISCONTINUED
