Finally reset the airbag light. Peake SRS would not reset until I disconnected the battery and turned on the flashers to reset all the ECUs.

No more lights on my dash...

(except for that oil level warning for a minute every time I start the car )

That's smart to put a towel under the spare. Mine is all scratched up :/

I took apart my intake to try to inspect the lower intake boot. Couldn't get to the bolt holding it on, but I did manage to rip off a vacuum hose of some kind. It had a tear in it anyway. It just made the hose connector shorter and I sealed it with superglue and a bit of electrical tape. Put it back together and it solved my P2227 code. Then, as I was driving to test it out and get dinner, someone rewarded my good works by rear ending me. YAY! It was only about 5 mph. Didn't get police involved since it was just paint damage. I don't even think I'm gonna repair it, but I'm still kinda irritated. I think it's karma from when I did the same thing to someone a couple years ago and they didn't make me pay. **** though man. Why does that **** have to happen. I've had the car less than 3 months!

Why not get police involved? Instead of their insurance to fix it, you use yours and pay out of your pocket?

I think you're both doing it wrong. I think the spare goes face up. It's also easier to take out that way.

Because it's not really worth the hour or two of my time. I'm probably not going to get it repaired, and most of it will polish out. Even if I do, my comprehensive deductible is $250. I could also probably get him to pay maybe half of it if I wanted too, but I won't bank on it. It's just not that huge of a deal to me since the bumper had many scratches on it already anyway.

Doesn't look like the threaded rod is long enough to do that.

Spare goes face down, there is a doughnut shaped bowl/cover that goes inside the rim.
