    4200 Auxillary Drive Belt.

    1. You can replace the radiator without the need to remove the front bumper. as per my post. 2. As for the auxiliary belt, have a look at my posting for replacing air conditioner compressor as I am sure I mention it there, replacing the auxiliary belt is surprisingly easy. Mas

    GS Air Con not 100% effective

If I move the "seat back" back and forth a few times then it works. I just popped into the garage 2 minutes ago and this time it worked first time...
