    I did more troubleshooting this afternoon, and the gremlin ran away, at least for now. I had already pulled all the fuses, including maxifuses, the interior light relay, and the 3-pin connector on...

    Alternator idiot light on with ignition off

    I'm back from the dead with a troubleshooting request.

    Symptoms:
    The Alt idiot light glows weakly with the ignition off (key in my pocket). It goes dark with the ignition on and engine off, and...

    This goes back more than 5 years, so my memory may be faulty, but I think I found the code after removing the electronics box from the (silly) "armored" enclosure. The actual electronics box is...

    I used a small rotary burr in a dremel to cut around the perimeter of the clear plastic from the outside. I think the factory covers have a fairly wide lip that is glued to the underside of the...

    A floor jack and 4 jack stands are enough. Scroll up to the pic of the bottom of my car and you'll see how much room there is. I use the rear jacking point to raise first one side of the car, then...

    You'll want to access the tunnel from below. It's not fun the first time. Tons of rivets to drill out and, if memory serves (this was 7 years ago), the belly pan is stuck to the frame with a sturdy...

    Those of us who have been here for 8 years or more are chuckling about how many times the subject of carbon drip trays comes up. I'd like something sturdier than the factory part. Carbon would be...

    Your problem may be the valve in the tunnel rather than the control knob. Here is a shot of the valve (in the middle of the pic). You are looking towards the front of the car. The control cable...

    Looks like the links to the dash pics are broken. I put them on my site.

    The only way I can imagine accomplishing this is with a socket on a long extension that you manipulate by sound and feel. ...

    Speaking of high-ish treadwear numbers, have any of you run Sport Cup 2s?

    I'm pretty sure I have the two sensors as well as harnesses that could donate the harness-end connector. The sensors have at most 4k miles on them. I pulled them off when I did the single turbo...

    Yes, the Noble will not disappoint. I had a 911 Turbo (water cooled), a C5 Vette with a roots supercharger, and a C6 Vette with a centrifugal supercharger. My Noble is quicker than all 3 of them,...

    You never know who's going to know that your car is a Noble. I parked in front of my credit union and a suit hurried out of the "No public entry" door and said "Is that a Noble?!?!" He knew about...

    Stalled at the moment. Work got busy, then I had knee surgery last week. I'm hoping to finish pulling the engine this weekend. Sure nuff is harder to work on than the Noble! They crammed 4000...

    One trick I stumbled on after installing a VPN is that I can set my "host country" to England. When I do, Google hits are generally UK websites. This presents me with more options for buying car...

    Avoiding this (or, more likely, decreasing the probability) was a lower priority reason for my conversion to a single turbo.

    I have the Ron Davis part. It's only a nudge thicker than stock, so it's not worth much of a price premium.

    SB100 applies to used cars. My Noble was licensed in Kentucky before I bought it. Don't fear the process! There are a few more steps than licensing a Porsche, but many of us have followed the...

    Threads in fiberglass?!?! Replaced!

    One of my goals is to replace "threaded" holes in fiberglass (and sheet metal!) with metal clips. I finally got around to doing the door speakers today. Sheet metal screws in fiberglass? Seriously?
