I would like to paint my gem but unfortunately I do not have the right key for the trunk release. I thought it would be the same as the one that opens the trunk but that is not the case. Where can I find a key to open this?
Also my steering wheel is tilted to the right when driving, meaning the car goes to the left when I point it forward. Is there a way to correct this?
As far as the steering goes, I had it aligned and now steers straight. However it now has negative camber and it is very noticeable sometimes. I have messed with the toe and that does not affect it. How do you adjust camber?
Negative camber isn’t the only issue. The tire angle seems to be very inconsistent. By that I mean sometimes the tires will have positive camber and others it will have negative. Will new shocks fix this issue?
Your right This is because the wheels move back and forth if they are pulling or braking. put a 2x4 in front of the wheels and manually push the car against it with the hand brake off. Then set the hand brake and adjust the toe.
I tested this and you were correct albeit in the opposite way. The bottom comes out when reversing and goes in when moving forward. I adjusted the toe and it seems to be better but still not perfect.
Also, when doing this I noticed that the pinch bolt at the bottom of the steering column is not horizontal to the ground when the steering wheel is centered. In the manual it says it should be horizontal. Does this even matter as long as the toe is correct?
If you are talking about the trunk back release behind the seat, it’s easy to remove the seat back, disengage the linkage and use an offset screwdriver to remove the lock handle. I took it in and had a locksmith cut a couple keys once I had it off the cart.
