Re: Creaking/popping noise coming from the front

So an (unproductive) update on this.... I went into Autozone and picked up the spindle axle nut socket set and a 250 ft/lbs 1/2" drive torque wrench. Pulled the middle cap off the wheel and discovered the axle nut on there was actually 36mm. I couldn't get the socket through the wheel center opening...

Re: Creaking/popping noise coming from the front

Ah, interesting if it's just the axle nut. Tonight I will try to get a 32mm socket and see if this is indeed torqued less then the specified 185 ft/lbs. Reading the Volt threads, it appears the common fix has been 1) re-torquing the nut to 185 ft/lbs, and/or 2) replacing the nut with a Chevrolet upd...

Creaking/popping noise coming from the front

I've recently developed a creaking/popping noises from the front of the car. It's usually 2 or 3 faint "pops" at acceleration from a top and the same "pops" when braking. Didn't find anything on this forum, but on some Volt and Bolt forums, owners have had similar issues and fixes (or just diagnoses...

Re: How many miles on your Saprk EV

Bought new in April 2016, now with 41k as my daily commuter with about 40 miles driven each day. Slight capacity degradation; was getting ~16.5 kWh last year; now between 15-16 kWh.

Would like to keep it...but for how long? At what number of miles before no-one buys it?

Re: Aftermarket speakers?

I installed a Rockford Fosgate P300 powered sub 2 summers ago and can honestly say it's my favorite modification on the Spark. Nice to rock out and feel the sub on my daily 45 minute commute. Install was super easy; just tap power and pull line level inputs from the rear speakers. And it's slim enou...

Re: Front tire life... how long did yours last?

I got about 26k miles before actually replacing the front tires (though probably about 4k of that was on some Yoko S's). I originally bought some General Altimax's but never installed them after reading so many reviews on these Antares tires from Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Antares-Ingens-A1...

Re: Installing Bosch charger in Oregon for tax credit

Another update (this time not so good). We bought a Volt (as a companion to the Spark) back in July and have been using the Bosch charger on it ever since. Yesterday, the charger started blinking between Red and Green, and did not charge the car. I tried resetting the breaker and turning off the uni...
