    I’ve been nothing but straight up sincere with you. No need to PM you as others more expert than myself have chimed in and I’ve learned from it. As for other stuff, I’ve help you tremendously via PM’s. Even to the point of frustration because you lack comprehension. :thumbsup:

    Reason I’ve avoided your posts lately is because you are a complainer. Nothing wrong with complaining about a new problem, but when its an ongoing self imposed one which you open yourself up to Constructive Criticism on an open board such as this you bring it upon yourself. Man up and fix your shtuff and stop playing a victim. Fix the problem! :rofl:

    And I can recall you trying to argue with us that bleeding the brakes wasn't necessary and that orange coolant was fine in our trucks. You've come a long way.

    I may be a mangler and a compliner but at least I'm not an asshole. When you bragged about getting into an argument with a dealership employee over wearing a mask, it really solidified for me how you are in your personal life.

    The fact is that you've gotten in more arguments with other members than anyone here. Bubbles, Marbles, and many others. After a while it's clear who the problem is.

    And while you have helped me a lot over the years, it doesn't excuse being a dick when I haven't done anything to you.

    Can you repost the context of my Orange Coolant comment? Just curious. Per the brake bleeding I openly admitted being ignorant on the issue going into it and corrected my way.

    If you notice a pattern, which clearly you seem to be able to thankfully, you’ll notice mostly (not always) its not me that starts the shit. Not saying I am perfect, but I do back my stuff up and when challenged and when wrong will openly admit and/or give credit. I do some razzing, surely in good nature and can handle it back pretty well.

    Your ad hominem attacks on me don’t help you one bit and belies a weakness in your argument and the underlying problem which is you and your brakes. Fix them dude! Your wife said she is tired of them, too.

    Your convoluted mask comment reveals another lack of comprehension which has nothing to do with you and your brake problem. I’d say you are far more dangerous driving (for 6 months?) with air in your brakes and ABS activation than someone 20 feet from me who isn’t sick or has a fever. Your logic is twisted. You truly lack even more comprehension than initially thought. Everyone here is tired of your self imposed brake problem.

    I’ll go back to ignoring you now which worked well for 6 months. Tried to help you earlier, but you took it personally. I’ll repost it again as I stand by it. Post #16632. No attacks just facts.

    1) Seems like you are unwilling to solve your problem. Last I remember, you replaced a sensor with Aftermarket (went cheapo). My guess is you yanked some wires and jacked things up in addition to needing an OEM Sensor. Another guess is you are getting air into your system somewhere from something you Mangled. Your system is compromised somewhere.

    2) Removing ABS will not solve your problem(s).

    3) You do not possess the skills to rework your brake lines so re-circle back to the time under the wheel well where you pulled or Mangled a wire or kinked a line. No reason you should still be having problems. Also, any air in your line is dangerous to you and others. I would not be able to leave the driveway with even two bubbles in my line without it telling me at the pedal.

    4) The under 5mph activation is a dangerous condition for stopping. I know because the 4WPlace ‘forgot’ to hook a sensor up or something after my front end rebuild. When I pulled out of the lot the Brakes were mush and the sensor was going ratatat tat under 5. Turned around and they did something to restore it quickly. Said it was a loose sensor. My ass was Chapped because they said they test drove it first and that was a lie. Could have been ugly if I wasn’t careful.

    5) Time to figure this out bud or pay someone to do so. No reason to let this linger this long.

    If we keep it up, soon the only person he won’t be ignoring is himself.

    Did my part for the neighborhood today. Cleaned the gutters at the river pavilion and swept the roof. They wouldnt let me do it for free, so i agreed to let them pay me back for the brisket for the cancelled party. So apparently i earn about 5 lbs of raw brisket per hour. Coulda done it in an hour, but its too nice to not get in the water. River is rockin’ and rollin’.

    Knock on whatever but my truck isn't doing that anymore. I had a few pucker up moments coming to a stop and the dang brakes went into abs mode. Hopefully mine worked itself out :notsure:

    HELP NEEDED:
    Well, damn. I see I’ve missed some drama, not staying current in here. As has been previously established and I readily admit, there’s a lot I don’t know. But I’ve committed to a course of learning by doing— and I don’t want to get hurt, so I’ll ask and hope y’all will guide me.

    After a previous false start— wishing I could find instructions about how to pull off the dash (still haven’t)— I think I’ve finally gathered all the assorted pieces I’ll need to install a ham, and so today I’m finally pulling apart the dash. Proof of progress:
    F890D836-FBA8-40C9-9175-1CF4EE57D797.jpg

    The last fasteners I can see that may need removal (?) are these, the upper glove box surround:

    9FC4E1AE-8CDF-4E0F-AFC3-6EFECEAB275A.jpg Can any of you confirm, or direct me?

    Question 2 (Safety concern):
    Is there anything I need to know to avoid screwing up airbags??? :confused:

    Battery has been disconnected. A neighbor suggested I turn accessories to on position and pump brakes... I considered he might be playing with me but he said that might discharge any stored charge, so I’m game... any other directions or warnings you can give me will be appreciated!

    We’ll be headed that way in July, really wishing to watch a reenactment, but they seem pretty rare these days. Have you got resources you can point me to, regarding where when others may be scheduled? :)

    For whatever reason, our Memorial wkends turn back to fall for a few days and us lake folks get to enjoy a few naughty nipples while out on the lake :facepalm:
    Yesterday it was cloudy and 61 and during the cannons this morning it was a cool N breeze of 63 !

    They only do the Battle re-enactment in April each year.

    Place it in a safe place facing up.

    On my 2004 there is a 10mm behind the Combination meter holding the dash.

    Disconnect both battery terminals and then use something to make them both touch each other for a few minutes. That will discharge every capacitor in the truck.

    There’s a safety clip on the air bag plug that needs to slide before you can use the squeeze to release it.

    That glove box liner needs to be removed. Then there are 2-14mm that hold the airbag in.

    There are also a few that go up from the lower dash and one behind the kick panel.

    Also, go ahead and take the gauge cluster out. Start by removing the surround and then then 4 Phillips that hold the cluster in. No worries on anything there. Just unplug and work it out from behind the wheel.

    There are a few more 10mm hiding back there as well as another behind the driver kick panel.

    Can’t tell from your pic if you’ve got them yet, but there are at least 4 10mm hiding behind the radio bezel.

    You should download the free FSM for 2002/2003 Tundra. Someone here has it and can post the link? You can go straight to the source for detail. IIrc, there is a special procedure which needs following to the T.

    That’s what I’d prefer to do, but I asked 2-3 weeks ago and didn’t get these details, so I’m tap-tapping my way through because I don’t want to lose more time.

    But... please, anyone on here that can point me to the FSM for a 00-02 Tundra, I’d appreciate it! Or just dismantling the dash, which is what I need right away.

    Thanks all that are helping!

    Thats a great description. When I left the Front End Rebuild Place the brake pedal was fine until getting up to speed and then coming to the first stop. Thats when ‘Ice Mode’ kicked in but not until that last 10 mph and under as the Pedal Sank to the floor with ratat tats. The pedal didn’t sink until under 10 mph when ABS kicked in.

    Turned around and carefully made it back. Guy said it was a Sensor Problem. They took it back and fixed it in less than 5 minutes. Assuming a small adjustment on replacement was needed? Been fine since with 3 years driving.

    I gave the old girl a coating of 303 Graphene today. Turned out pretty nice. Based on the vids I watched for this product I'm optimistic for long lasting shine. Anybody else use this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/303-Graphene...622408210&sprefix=303+graphene,aps,375&sr=8-5

    Looks better in the sun but don't have that luxury right now.

    Now that is a wonderful description. That's exactly what would happen to me. Come to think of it last year I did pressure wash the heck out of the undercarriage, I guess that must have had something to do with it.:notsure: If it happens again I will definetly look more into it.

    I love the 303 for trim, but have never used the 303 Graphene. Seems like mixed reviews from your link. We’ll see what you think in 6 months.

    I might give that stuff a try. I've been meaning to get something to do a quick "wax" after washing. It takes too much time to do a real wax on her every time! Spray n wax type stuff is nice for removing water spots too. Our water is so hard I have to swish swish a couple spots even after a sham dry.

    You too? All the car washes here have the “spot free rinse” which I assume is either softened, RO or distilled. I don’t wash at home anymore because I can’t dry fast enough to avoid the water spots.
