42. Torque rod insulator replace
The torque rod insulator became thin, and when I stepped on the accelerator and released it, I heard a sound (ton, con?), And I found a new genuine part, so I replaced it.
When the piping related to the intercooler was removed, the front side could be easily removed, but the tool could not be inserted into the back side and the bolt could not be turned.
There was no choice, so I moved the position of the hose band, turned the front of the torque rod upward and tilted it, angled the direction in which the bolt came out, applied lubricant to the contact surface of the hose, and pulled it out by force.
I pulled out the rubber insulator from the rod, I remembared that I added a protective tube of the intercooler pipe to the big one in front side when the same symptom appeared before. Compared to the new one, it was obviously thinner, so I replaced it. On the other hand, the smaller one in the back side was more solid and I wasn't thin, so I decided to use it as it is.
