    Dear Friend.
    As I've seen in the threads you are a perfect specialist in ferrari. I need your help now.
    My steering wheel was vibrating while car was in idle. and to day I feeled when I trun the steering the middle part (airbag) is loose.... well. it is really kind of loose and I can move it up and down and it moves 4 mms to the sides.
    Do you know how to fix it up? as it is a airbag part I was afraid to use excessive force to remove it...
    I will really appreciate your advice

    Hey Richard, great to hear from you again :) I wanted to contact you after I left FC but couldn't find your private email anymore. Sorry ;). We are doing great and hopy your little family too. Sorry to hear about your Porsche issues. I remember I've read something that your local garage forgot to reconnect a T hose and blow the engine during a test drive. Aie Aie! My lawyers are still "working" the case going through all the possible courts and find the failure. Let's keep in touch and I'm very happy to see you here on FerrariLife. You have some interesting stuff to share here and I liked the good times when we've been working together on researching how to improve things on the F430 ;) Stef

    Hey StefVan, how are you things Ferrari wise doing well, but a local garage blew up my Porsche TT engine which required a 51K rebuild, then I had to go 3 times to pass the MFK ! How did it work out with your speeding case ? Richard ZH

    Gary, you mean the exhaust valves hoses? If yes, there is no problem to seal them, the ECU's won't notice it. But it's not a good practice to cold start the engine with the exhaust valves opened. The cats will take much more time the get to the operating temperature and as a consequence, the lambda heaters will have to work longer as usual. Also, the cats will have recieve a largly enriched mixture for a much longer time. I scoped it and the difference with the valves open/close is quite big. Not an issue if done a couple of time but may be an issue if done all the time during years.

    Yes Luigi, you can but the best is to install the Capristo remote control unit so that you can open the exhaust valves with a remote control. It is better to cold start the car with the exhaust valves closed. Stef
