Hi rcannon. Yes, I know well. Some used shims, some used screws. I used to race cars in my youth, in Europe. I remember the shims (patilles of Alfa Romeo well... graduated so finely.

As they state, only with the headlights 'on'. I checked my own 2009RX350, and, with the headlights 'off', the headlight sprayer is not triggered by the windshield washer. With the headlights 'on',...

The monitor in the car is 'alerted' when it doesn't get the signal that the tires are sufficiently inflated. Without a battery, the sensor does...
