      Not to sound like a jerk like I usually do but since you are there, just look under the car and see what/where it's leaking. Surely you do not want me to travel there. It's going to take awhile.

      If you can drill and tap a hole, then you could make it adjustable yourself.

      Just drill a hole in the adjusting pin. Tap it to the size bolt you want to screw into it. Then screw the bolt [with a...
