Got a few quick questions regarding some stuff I noticed about my quest:
  • Is there a quick way to check if the balance shafts have been eliminated, or is pulling the timing cover really the only way to know?
  • I noticed the engine is at 3k RPMs at 70 MPH in 5th gear. Does that sound right for stock gearing? Seems short to me.
  • How the hell to I drop my rear seats if the plastic seat releases are missing?
Thanks in advance

1. There's a balance shaft tensioner access plate you can remove on the timing cover. If there's a tensioner bolt behind it, you still have balance shafts.

2. Yes that's normal

3. Plastic seat release? The seats are held in with bolts.

TexasQuest, he is talking about the back part of the seats. You can stick a screwdriver in the same slot the plastic piece goes in and move the mechanism to release the fold down part.

Yes, the seat backs. I tried getting in there with a long screwdriver, but I could never figure out how to work the mechanism with it. I'll play with them some more when the weather lets up a bit. Thanks for the help.

just use a screwdriver or some other long blunt object to pull the metal peg towards the front of the car to release the seats.

if you don't mind bending your fingernails off you can get it with an edge of your nail and pull foward.
