low speed collision

G’day,

I would like to know what is the threshold of GM cars (Pontial Sunfire
in particular) regarding deployment of the Air bags?  i.e. at whats
the minimum speed of the impact that the air bags should pop open?

I had a fender bender in a rush hour traffic (may be at 5km/h) and the
Air bags popped open!

Any thoughts??

car hinges

I’m doing a research on car hinges (doors, hood, lift gate) and I’m
trying to map the technologies (stamped hinges, profiled hinges or
forged hinges) that each car maker uses on its different models.
Unfortunately, I don’t live in the US, so I don’t have the opportunity
to go through each car dealers and have personnaly a look at those
components.
So if anybody has some information about that, it would really help me
to complete the data I have for now.
Thanks to everyone!

Tire Size vs Speedometer

Math never was my strong point. Curious how much my speedometer will
be off now that I have went from P215 75R15′s to P215 65R15′s. Anyone
who can help, thank you. I’m thinking, after driving a couple days
that speedo showing 75 means I’m doin about 65ish.

Wiring 3rd Brake Light for Trailer

I’m using a 4-pin plug to power my trailer (1972 Serro Scotty Gaucho)
and having trouble wiring the center brake light. Is there a way to
make this light brighten with the brakes but not blink with turn
signals? I have the standard 4-pin connector:

brown: runner (tail)
yellow: turn signal
green: turn signal
white: ground

Any advice is appreciated,
john

research on car hinges

Hi,

I’m doing a research on car hinges and I’m trying to find some
contacts in the automotive industry that could give me some
informations on those components and about the manufacturing process
that is used to produce the hinges.

If any body had some contacts to share, please let me know.

Or if you have some information to share directly, that would also be
great!

'99 Tercel air conditioning costs

The A/C in the above mentioned car is not working as well as it once did.
We’ve noticed a bit of a decline in cooling ability over the last year or
so.

Took the car to the dealership to see what they could do. Bad news: There
is a teeny tiny leak at a seam in the condenser, so it needs to be
replaced.

Since they cannot legally just "top up" the system until all leaks are
fixed, the repair bill would be $1,240 Cdn. Plus tax.

Would I save much on labor costs if I had the dealer evacuate the system,
installed the new condenser and dryer myself, then brought it back to them
for refilling? Is it even possible to do things this way?

And hey, happy 4th!
