Default Images missing


Is there any way to get the images back on this post? They seem they would be great for the post. The links for the images are dead.

Nut # 12 needs to be tighten, it's a 13 mm. Use a deep socket. Attach a couple of extensions and a swivel is a must have. Once you get the socket on the nut, all it takes is a few turns with the wrench and you are done. That's it.
No more 10 clicks before the parking brake grabs. I can't believe I waited this long to fix it!
