Bits and Pieces

Posted in Car stuff, DIY on May 5, 2012 by Stanley Carter

Over the last month or two, I’ve been fixing, adding as well as upgraded some minor items for my Charmant, such as:

Flamebeater – mini fire extinguisher

New brake fluid

New spark plugs – Denso BKUR6EK (stock plugs for Perodua Kembara)

New plug wires (Germany made) and new intake filter

DIY fix for my broken windshield wiper switch handle

Here’s a youtube video demonstrating how it works:

And finally… I’ve replaced my faulty rear disc caliper (albeit still a stock unit) and my E-brake now finally works, though it’s still not as tight as I hope to be, but at least I can now use it for parking as well as 180 turns, for drift initiations, well it’s still pretty much hopeless though…
