Need to replace Shear Panel

1446 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  the1sen
My shear panel got slightly bent.
Is there anything I need to know about replacing it?
Can the nylocks be reused?
Do I need any special tools/hardware to replace the panel?

simple fix

The shear panel is easy to replace. Order a replacement, remove fasteners on the old and install the new. There is a bit of moving the panel around to get it out from under the cables.

As I remember, the cost was minimal, around $60 or so.

I have the old one as a trophy, hanging on my garage wall. A gentle reminder to be careful when you lift the car with a jack that needs maintenance...
