comment what vehicle disk brake diameter 220 mm tickness 10 mm
"Caravan" in British English is what we would call a camping trailer, @Paulster2. I'd guess that was what was meant here.

This sounds like the kind of problem Car Talk would have spun the Wheel of Automobile Misfourtune for.

comment Help identify round diodes - need a replacements
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about electronics parts that just happen to have come from a motor vehicle. It should not have been migrated; the chances of getting a useful answer are much higher on a site dedicated to electronics experts.

comment Subaru forester electric window motor - part identification
That is interesting. The Subaru part numbers for the four doors' motors are definitely different: Front Right 61188SA001 Rear Right 62188SA001 Rear Left 62188SA011, but I guess that doesn't mean that they aren't the same piece after all.

Closely related (my answer contains the same trick as Paulster's here): How do I remove a pulley where I have no way of stopping it turning anti clockwi?

comment Preventing Car Theft by Removing Fuses
"problem with leaving the fuel pump fuse out over night, or is it just an issue of the potential thief cranking and cranking the engine in a futile attempt to start it and draining the battery?" The latter. As for steering wheel locks, I came across this article about how much thieves may be helped by the Club when I was researching the question you quoted.

comment What are the names of each window on a typical non-commercial vehicle?
This might work better if you provided a picture and gave letters or numbers to all the items you want the names of.

comment Synchromesh, Helical gear design
The reverse gear on otherwise-helical manual transmissions is generally straight-cut, is it not? That may be a more familiar source of the typical whine.

comment Torque spec variance with Anti-Seize
I'd think the manufacturer of the anti-seize would know best how their product affects the torque of any fastener, but I'm interested to see the answer here.

comment Individual wheels' toes are out of range but combination is within specs
Looks like the both wheels are out of spec, yes? One clarification: are these values the after-alignment values, or did you just have the measurement done, and not the work yet?

comment 2002 Honda Civic Si Air Box
If you could include some pictures of what you're talking about, it would probably improve your chances of getting a helpful answer. Otherwise, only someone who's worked on this exact item will really know what you're talking about.

comment Is my Forester's caliper bracket bolt hole stripped?
Your comment is indeed the case, Nick G. I didn't really think this through before getting worried about it. I like the suggestion of a longer bolt with a nut on the other side, though. In this case there's no room, but I'll remember it for other situations.

Will a helicoil be secure in a through hole, especially such a shallow one?
