  • Motor/Tranny exposed, what now?

    I pulled the rear seat back off my 02 X30 so I can get it reskinned in the off season. I went ahead and pulled the middle insert and I was wondering if you guys had any advice on stuff I should do "while I'm in here" as I don't imagine I'll be pulling the seatback off again once I get the skin back on. I was going to do the transmission fluid anyway as part of my yearly maintenance. Any suggestions. Thanks.

    If you haven't changed your fuel filter lately now would be a good time.

        Russlars is right. I change my fuel filter every year. Some might think it's overkill - beats swapping a few beers for a tow and wasting 1/2 a day for a repair.

          Good time for some deep cleaning/painting of the engine compartment/bilge.
          If you have more than 200hrs on the fuel pump and are going to replace the filter, then you may as well for under $100 just replace the fuel pump while you have the module pulled. Fuel pumps are notorius for only lasting 3-400hrs max on our boats.
          Trans fluid, yes. Trans filter if that hasn't been done in the last 1-200hrs.
          Grease as mayo said.
          Double check all the wiring/connections. Clean any connections to ground.

            I'm glad I don't have to work on that engine lol. I like my DD -- everything right there in plain view with lots of room to work.

            Carefully inspect any rubber hoses, and replace as necessary. If they're original they are ten years old now.

                    Jafo9 - Forget about re-skinning the seats. Just stretch duct tape over all the storage pods. You can even spice it up with fancy colors for that extra special look. Strad, I hear ya... I just switched from DD and I am not a fan of engine access on the new X2.

                      so the stereo install is done (gotta have priorities right?) and now i can do the mechanicals. i'm going today to pick up an E2044 and i've already got my fuel filter from skidim. i'll change all the fluids, however, i don't see where there is a transmission filter. any advice on how to get to it? the only one on the skidim.com site is $100. does that sound right? thanks.

                        Transmission filter is under the cap in the red square. It has an allen head on top. They are expensive. $100 sounds about right. I've never replaced mine. I cleaned it with some gasoline or brake cleaner last time I changed the transmission fluid.
