Stupid passenger side window regulator about to go out. Have the part in my garage, guess I have to install it soon. Any recommendations for keeping the vapor barrier intact?

Peel off slowly and carefully. Reapply with a heat gun or blow dryer and you will be golden.

Yes although the only thing I had was some pet stain remover it worked quite well for the couple of stains in my carpet. Seats are super easy to take out takes about 5 mins each seat, coupes are actually easier to take out the seats cause the seat belts aren't attached to the seat like on my sedan but it was only an extra 2 nuts to get that off. A lot of people just say to use compressed air to get under the seats but I prefer to just take them out.... I thought about doing a DIY on how to remove seats but I'm sure if you search someone has already done one, pm me if you have any questions

Did that not long ago. Turned out to be the little door that opens/closes with a speaker attached to it.. So obnoxious considering it won't stay closed. I used a piece of black tape and the sound is gone.

I think it might be the tire iron I have resting on the spare wheel but I have to be certain.

Sally-Sue needed some love; replaced the lower radiator bracket, heater control valve, thermostat, fuel tank breather valve and flushed the coolant. A lot of work for one day. Still have quite a few things on my maintenance to-do list for my 13 year old redhead.

I inspected my engine bay and found my oil filter housing gasket to be leaking after one year. Went to BMA to pick up a new gasket. Tomorrow putting it in.Fun.

I'll use steam to do mine. Not a drop of chemical needs to be used unless you've been having pizza fights in your car. even then steam would work great!
