Drum brakes - do you disconnect the parking brake cable? by Mad Roger
I haven't done drum brakes ever but I'm faced with these drum brakes where I'd just like to ask a couple of questions from those of you who have done drum brakes before. 1.

Converting to convertible: What are the challenges? by Jeannot
I'm looking at converting a 2004 crown victoria to a convertible. I can cut, I can weld, I can paint. Of course, my objective is NOT an automatic roof, or anything I can drive at 100mph, or anything air-tight. It'll be a very occasional drive... Is anyone crazy enough to have attempted something...

Crackling/"rustling" noise in Chrysler 300M by Percival P. Cassidy[_2_]
While driving at freeway speeds today, I could hear an annoying noise in our '02 Chrysler 300M -- like rustling leaves, perhaps, but loud and constant. Turning off the fan didn't seem to make any difference. When the car was not moving, there was no such sound, even when I cranked the fan up to...

Is there a database online for the number of shop hours a car repair should take? by Frank S[_2_]
