We fully endorse always switching to winter tires when the snow falls, but with many new cars, TPMS sensors can be a burden. Having to take your car to a dealer to program your car not only costs money, but also time. On the new generation Saab 9-5, however, as long as you have working pressure sensors it is quite easy to reprogram them yourself without any additional tools. All you need is a way to let the air out of your tires, a way to fill your tires back up, and a tire pressure gauge. In about 5 minutes, The NG9-5 TPMS will read correctly at all four corners once againhttps:www.youtube.comwatchvAexbX-HIm50featureyoutu.beFirst set your parking brake and start the car. On your left control stalk, clear any messages and go to your vehicle information menu. Scroll to the screen that displays the tire pressure sensing and hold down the button on the end of the ...Read More

When you buy a shiny new set of brakes, it's pretty exciting to finally get rid of that horrible vibration, or terrible squeaking. However, if you're not careful you can be revisiting the problems faster than you think. A customer recently asked a question about why his BMW 740il was shaking when applying the brakes. Almost always, a brake jutter or vibration through the brake pedal is the result of uneven wear on the brake rotors at the end of an improper brake pad bed-in. Because of the nature of the friction material, there are a few crucial things to keep in mind when you finish your brake job. Read on to learn how to avoid all of that after installing your next disc brake kit.Why do I have to bed-in my brakesThe key concept to understand when discussing brake pad brake in also known as bed in, or burnishing is that of the transfer layer. The transfer layer ...Read More

Last yearmarked the first time eEuroparts sponsored Lime Rock Park's Winter Autocross and Driving School, and in short, it rocked. Even when the weather didn't cooperate fully, Lime Rock stepped up with purpose built snow making equipment and made sure we had plenty of the white stuff to slip and slide see the video below. If you've never been to Lime Rock, and are feeling blah after this holiday season, this is the prime opportunity to get back on track to spring, and get some really cool photos. All 2 wheel drive cars are required to have snow rated tires, with NO studs, so keep that in mind. AWD cars can have all season tires, but why would you not want to COMPLETELY DOMINATE the course Currently Lime Rock Park has scheduled two 2017 Winter Autocross Days: Saturday, January 14th and Saturday, February 11th; and two Winter Driving School events: Saturday, ...Read More

This week we finalized our plan to bring the saab 9-3 race car shell down to Samp;W Race Cars to design and install a roll cage kit suitable for road racing. They came highly recommended by Gary Reider who used them in his classic 900 race car 'RED'. Because of their work with him, they currently have a c900 kit for very reasonable money. You can choose to install it yourself if you have the right equipment and know-how, or bring to a local welding shop. Either way, it is a great time and cost savings to have a great fitting pre-bent kit vs. starting from scratch each time. This week we get on with the final roll cage preparation, as well as check out a few new parts that arrived. The final removal of interior components revealed that the HVAC heater core unit was first installed and the rest of the car was bolted together around it at the factory. After some ...Read More

Rally Rally, never ends. The notion of an "offseason" is almost a laughable measure of time. Even at top level, WRC, there is only about a month and a half till the next event, it's the result of an innately all-weather type event. While most types of racing take an extended break, we are still thinking about the next event. This year the car made it out pretty well after Black River Stages and the New England Forest Rally both huge events. With Rally-crosses monthly, ice racing, and possible winter stage rallies such as SnoDrift coming up, I did not have major upgrades planned after the 2016 rally season....But many things needed to be addressed after the car's first year of serious abuse. I had a few fixes and upgrades planned. Upgrades like a steering quickener and a lot of reinforcement were planned. Angle Iron on the sills, more protection underneath, and ...Read More
