timjj added a topic in Brakes & SuspensionNew Pads, New rotors, same traffic light tinnitus!Hey all,
Thought id hit up anyone that has had similar issues with the Z non-brembo brakes squealing under light pressure.
My brakes were perfect up until about 12 months ago when discovered the fronts needed replacement. No big deal. Replaced them myself with some soft pads, used anti-seize grease, and they were good for about 1000ks. Anyway, they started squealing again at low pressure, I couldn't work it out so I took it into a mechanic. $700 later, new Bendix pads (harder than I had), new rotors, bedded them in, same old blasted squeal at low pressure and shockingly worse in wet weather.
The mechanics were happy to take my money and not find a solution, lucky for them they don't risk tinnitus every time I pull up at a traffic light!
Any one had similar issues and worked out what it is?
Any ideas are much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

timjj added a topic in Interior / ExteriorAC Temperature no range. Only cold or hotHI guys,
I have a 2004 350Z softtop and have had issues with AC unit since I got it.
The AC unit has 2 options - Cold (when set at 18 on the dial) and Hot when set to anything but 18. Makes no difference is AC button is on or off. There is no range. I have read it can be because of the sun sensor on the dash (no idea how that could be of any effect). I replaced the passenger side one but makes no difference - no surprise there. I have pulled the white AC control box out from under the stereo but everything looks fine. No broken cables, all lights and functions of the unit work - just the ability to adjust them temperature is stuffed. Anyone come across this issue before and been able to find a solution? Really annoying having either a hot or cold cabin and nothing in between!
