How was the wiring? Did it come with the massive plug that is down by the driver's knee?

Can you post some shots of the inside, with the tubing adapter?

Also, how is the upper part held in place? Double-stick foam to the A-pillar?

After a bad experience with Armor All back in the 90's (cracked the steering wheel, the dash, the door cards...), I only use a damp cloth to clean the dash these days.

If there's corrosion along the rim (the tire bead seating area) I would think it'd be more of a slow leak, which the TPMS would tell you about. The tire dealer should have easily been able to spot...

Looks interesting. Priced like a higher-end car radio, but is a tablet.

If you have the money and the skills needed to install it - I say go ahead. And post some photos of the install.

When you go in, request the lug nuts be hand-tightened with a torque wrench (not a torque stick).

Uneven torque can pull a brake disc out of shape over time.

I would confirm with the seller that it's a complete kit - has all the original bolts and washers that it should have.

It's rare, but it does happen. Sometimes because of thermal stress, sometimes because an edge got nicked. Or even a rock thrown from a lawn mower.

I'm confused. You say nothing is working, yet in the next sentence you say those items are "reacting".

Can you slow down and post exactly what the problem is?

How big a crack does it need to be before they'll do the work?

I have some small cracks around the center stack, but you can't see the foam underneath (yet).

Is there a stone hit on the glass anywhere near it?

Have you applied any chemicals/solutions to the glass?

Is the sensor starting to peel off the inside of the glass?

Yep. In-town, where you're making a lot of turns at relatively low-speed, you should be able to get away with a tire circumference difference. Long distances, at highway speeds, no. Realize that...

For -35F temps, I'd also want to consider a battery blanket. Some of them are heated as well.

Since it's in 4WD/AWD all the time, it's probably a lot easier for the owner -- just get in and drive. Only have to put it in low range when you go off-road and need the extra traction.

I think next step is a dealer visit.

So the sound continues for a brief period of time after the engine catches?
