Somewhat being forced to change my phone and during the setup process,
made mistake and locked myself out of accessing any two factor authentication process
including photo album.

Now back online and have access to the photo album.

At the time of writing, it's Saturday the 7th December but
the NSX was already collected by the owner last Saturday so
going to back date this post accordingly.

Already working on another NSX as we speak….

Before placing back the eng bay vent, quick modification to reduce the amount of water dripping over the rear IG coil cover.

Took some time adjusting the eng cover for the ideal alignment preventing the fogging up of the rear hatch glass but
had to compromise as the hatch looked to be removed in the past.

The owner told me that he only heard less than 10sec of ABS pump operation each time he took the car out and
as the ABS fluid level didn't change a lot over many months, I was kind of hoping for a quick service.


First, the accumulator was full of air.

Then, after activating one of the solenoid, the valve just kept leaking…..

Another solenoid valve was partially seized and being kept closed and the piston slider on that particular corner was
also stuck that it didn't return much fluid back to the reservoir.

Tried the specific method in releasing them without much success.

However, managed to recover the leaky solenoid.

After spending hours on this ABS, the best measure would be exercising the ABS multiple times while the tyre is still cold.

I had the same issue on many NSX and some of them required about a week of repeated vibration to
release the stuck closed valve and piston.

If no improvement, time to consider the ABS upgrade.

Please note that exercising the ABS WILL introduce another issue so must flush the system manually every year or two.
