Maybe this should be in the Newb section, but I did perform a search with only 2 hits that were not relevant....so this might be useful for a lot of people


Just came back from my 30,000 mile service and they replaced the bell crank under warranty. This was due to me asking them to look into why I was continually squeking shifting through the gears. I assumed it would just be a lube problem or something. Thankfully they replaced the bell crank and everything is great now.

So basically what is a bell crank?

Could my driving habits have anything to do with it having to be replaced? I drive fairly aggressively and so did the previous owner of the car....

Also my windows were moving really slow....they lubed the runners and they move like lightning now. I remember seeing a post about slow windows from some other owners. This has corrected the problem.

Apparantely lube is not enough, my invoice stated that there was no lube and the assembly had to be replaced entirely. I'm not sure why the assembly was not lubricated properly

Actually I totally forgot that I had this problem last summer...I just checked my invoice from when I took it in in June and they replaced my bell crank at that time as well....so twice in 8 months they've given me a new bell crank. I would've asked when I was there exactly what the problem is but I failed to realize this was replaced already under warranty.

So far I've had the car 8 months and I've replaced the bell crank twice and the belt tensioner once. Hopefully this won't happen again.
