Can I drive the car like this without causing further damage?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Also what is the cause of this?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok seems the cable is popping off, maybe air pressure pushing them off, is maybe the tread or plug washer leaking? Plugs tighten up fine
