2010 - 2013 (Gen 4) DIY Guides

I thought it might be handy to have a compiled list of links to the various Gen 4 DIY guides, it just makes it easier to find stuff instead of searching or digging through the DYI forum manually.

It's obviously a work in progress but I hope other folks will find this useful and maybe we can get a sticky?

Thanks, really good collection.

FYI: The "HK-Nav ground mod Hack - Peaty" leads to a thread that has an invalid link unfortunately. Is there an alternative link?

Great stuff! I have one dumb, newby question. How much oil does the 2.5 take on refill, filter and all? The book says 4.4 quarts, but is a little vague, and the 3.6 takes more that it says in the book.
If no one answers before next week, I will post the answer when I do my first OC. Thanks.

I noticed that post #1 is the one being updated and recalled that the ability to Edit a post in these forums is limited to one month. (I just checked my own posts and found the Edit button disappeared for posts prior to the 11th of March.) That would mean after May 8, new Gen 4 DIYs etc could not be added to the list in post #1. Perhaps a moderator or the Administrator can clarify and/or set it for you so that it can be.

Done.

PM me next time, I'm rarely away from the site for more than 24 hours.
