Applying pressure : will make the problem go away for a while but (1) the foam that is used to : apply pressure will eventually compress under vibration and pressure and (2) : the contacts are still not optimal and will likely get worse. : : the question is how long that will take. If it takes 1 year, then it's : probably bad. If it takes 30 years, who cares. : : I'm going to try the foam solution for my SID, but I was thinking of : investigating a more permanent solution Yeah, I've been thinking about doing that fix myself. I never thought about the effects of the foam compressing, but that makes sense. Well, as long as it works for the duration that I own the car, I'll be happy. Definitely post here if you come up with a good permanent solution that doesn't require precision skills. -- agreenbu Return to Main Index
