Re: 280 GE ignition resistors - one or two

The photo above is the "carpet area" below the glove box, which has two hold downs that allow it to drop for fuse access...if you did not know.

Thanks

Re: Disc brake caliper bolts extremely tight!!!

Indeed, it links to A4604210112/A4604210012, depending on axle number. All of the relevant parts pictures I pull up show an unvented disk. But, things get weirder.
