Re: Maintenance purchasing

I have bought a number of Diamond-specific parts directly from Premier Aircraft in Florida . They have some of their inventory posted online, or you can call them at 800-903-8402. They are a major Diamond Service Shop and will sell parts directly to the public. In my experience, for parts they have ...

Re: Individual knobs for G1000 Displays Available

The trick with replacing the G1000 knobs is that there is a metal ring inside the knob that fits tightly over the shaft. If you remove the old knob and the metal ring stays on the shaft, you will never be able to push the new knob onto the shaft. Once you remove the old knob, look very carefully and...

Re: Panel vibration / rattle

Thank you, Rich. Yes, I meant the instrument cover, not the glare shield. I am one of the afore-mentioned guilty parties :oops:

For clarity, I will correct my previous post.

Re: Panel vibration / rattle

Brian, I had a squeaky rattle in the dash of my 2004 DA40. Someone suggested I put some small pieces of duct tape between the instrument panel cover and the panel where it was rubbing, and that helped quite a bit. In my case, I could see places where the metal was rubbing on the back of the black co...

Re: Sold my DA40, cleaning out my hangar

I probably should have followed up - I posted the list of things I am getting rid of here in this post (in the Marketplace / For Sale forum). I have been removing the things that are already gone, so whatever is left in the list is still available - feel free to ask!

Sold my DA40, cleaning out my hangar

After many years of aircraft ownership, I have sold my current DA40 and no longer own an airplane. I don't plan to stop flying any time soon, I will just rent for a while. My missions have changed and I'm no longer flying enough to justify having such a nice airplane just sitting in a hangar 99.9% o...

Re: CHT sensor validation

With all the fixation on readings that are just 20 degrees LOP or whatever, it seems like being off just a small amount matters, so it would be good to know. For LOP operation, you are looking at the change in EGT instead of the absolute CHT - and the actual EGT values are pretty irrelevant anyway....

Re: Rudder pedal spring snapped

I ended up ordering my spring from Premier Aircraft in Florida - it was $18 total including shipping, etc. I ordered the part number I referenced above. But I have the electric pedals, so I think your part number is different for the manual pedals. You might try Premier - they could probably give yo...
