Re: Oil Leaking on pass side brakes

Did you tighten with the right amount of newtonmeters? Valve cover gaskets dont need much. They are easily overtightened. You may use a liquid gasket improver. (like a loctite 5922not 100% sure this is for rubber also)

Re: Hello - new Kizashi owner

Welcome!!
Funny. Me myself came from a swift sport 2007 too. You could probably find a few parts in nearby countries. Germany has about 750 driving around. (Netherlands 175)

Re: My 2012 SE leather.

Yes its a shame but this This was only in US (and 1.. or 2 models for Canada. In the meanwhile there were like 30 models of suzuki that other br...

Re: My 2012 SE leather.

In the Netherlands they used a sony from what i remember. 1 out of 10 here have Navigation put in by the dealer. ...

Re: Front and rear replacement brake pads

I replace them myself most of the times. I really dont have a favorite and have like 10 brands to choice from but last i used ashuki for the kizashi and bosch for the grand vitara. Both are fine and prices of all brands are close to each other. Not every mechanic likes it when you bring own parts.

Re: PCV Tube/Pipe replacement

I am in the Netherlands where dealers can still sell it to me so dont know about US. But some people here order overseas from megazip and it seems to work great.

Re: Tom's Kizashi 6MT

Thnx, Unfortunately i mean 1800 euros so probably even over 2000 in dollars. But this is at a "professional" shop. Probably 1/3 if i let some hobby guy at home doing the work. You have to look carefully to see the damage but its there. The cleanerkit will be bought soon from another company.

Re: New owner added! 2013 Kizashi

Late reply but does it work already? I just made 3 new presets yesterday by pussing the number and then the "m" i believe. I needed 1 full second between pussing the number and the "m".

Re: Rear pads tight - question

You are probably just fine. Good that you greased the slide pins cause not all garages will do that even when they should. I always check the rubber thats over the slide pins also. They weir down and when moisture or sand comes in.. The grease will disappear and brakes will get stuck again.
