Default S-Type 'HOW TO' Guides


Hi Everyone,

This is sjuraud and I'm heading up the S-Type FAQ page. This page has been created to help guide members to pertinent information as quickly and easily as possible. Every effort is being made to be precise with this info. I will consider any appropriate contributions or corrections for entry in the S-Type FAQ (but can only include ones deemed by either me or in conjunction with other Admins and Moderators as needed). This section will be in a state of flux for a while until all the links and kinks get worked out. So please bear with me while the page is worked on.

If there are ANY credits that I missed for links included, please let me know. Also if I gave wrong credit to someone or the author wishes to not be linked to, let me know also.

Thanks and enjoy!

!Special Tip When Changing Rear Brakes:
"... rear brakes on an 03+ with the electric ebrake. Basically that you HOLD the ebrake button/lever down while removing the key from the ignition. Otherwise, you'll end like me, expanding your vocabulary with new combinations of cuss words..." (Thanks Bacardi 151)
