Garage Gurus, Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ national training platform, will hold its third Facebook Live event at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Featuring Guru Bud Houston and broadcast from Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Southfield, Michigan, Technical Service Center, viewers will be able learn more about common suspension inspection techniques that occur on popular Chrysler LX platform vehicles.
Houston will examine a 2005 Chrysler 300C and diagnose issues commonly overlooked in inspection procedures, including symptoms of control arm bushing failure. He will work live on the rear wheel drive, 5.7-liter 300C, that has pattern failure for worn suspension bushings, and also will demonstrate a new tool for checking control arm bushings for wear. Houston will be available to answer questions during the demo as he reviews the main causes of part failure, how to repair it correctly and how to get additional camber/caster adjustment when servicing the bushing.
This is the third installment of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ ongoing Facebook Live series. The first Facebook Live event was held in May, when Guru Tim Habel demonstrated Fel-Pro head gasket replacement tips. In August, Guru John Dixon hosted a seminar on ABS installation techniques.
