FTFY.

"A common issue", claims 'The Wizard'. Hmmm, first time that I've heard about it. 😂

Hopefully the Car Wizard is the one with the beard.

I'm concerned he thinks there's a bank of cylinders under the air intake! :huh:

Maybe he meant the fuel intake manifold?

This might be unrelated, but I experienced a similar shuddering sensation through the steering of my car after a power steering fluid change. I took it back to the dealer for a bleed and top-up. No money changed hands. 4 years later it’s still perfect. I wonder if the Wizard tried that, before ripping out the steering rack for a very costly repair?

I didn’t quite understand his logic of how disconnecting the power steering pump (serpentine belt) resulted in the shuddering going away, so it had to be the rack? Surely if you disconnect a component and things get better, then that part may well be to blame? Even if it’s pumping well, there could be air in the system like mine.

I believe the button inside the car was not actually standard on the base model mik so that's fair enough.

I'm no expert but isn't there a reset on the window as well if it starts playing up before you try replacing the regulator?

The Wizard has had another mishap on one of Hoovies cars (Mercedes SLS) as well when he put the transmission fluid in the wrong hole... They are used to simpler cars in the USA.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Some good points here. There's another Hoovie video where "the Wizard" puts transmission fluid in the wrong hole of an AMG SLS, so he clearly isn't always right, to say the least!
