Re: Front Subframe Mounting Bolts?

Just as a follow up to anybody searching for this, my '06 has the external torx bolts as well. The socket size is E18 and harbor freight sells a 3/4" drive set containing that size.

Re: Recommendations for instrument cluster repair

Thanks for the info. It's still working most of the time, but guess I should start looking for a replacement motor now. Are these motors soldered to the logic board, or do they come off easy?

Re: FS: SGT-SCZA Trunk Lid in FRP (Bay Area)
