Is the tire that heavy? It is a little awkward with the tailgate. Found the "Trunk Lid Support" for $5 and about the same to ship. Thanks for the clue.

I have some. There's just no good way to get to the carpet under the center console at the firewall. Vacuum nozzle doesn't even reach in well. Wondering if I should pull the entire center console, but could be quite a hassle with the trans selector and parking brake lever.

Yes, meant rear rotor. Have replaced hubs before - Not an issue here. Wrong word.

Since I'm pulling the center console apart as much as I can (to get to the carpet), I'll take a look.

Just happens that I have the Plinkington replacement windscreen discussed here. Wonder if it ever worked.

The adhesive looks like the last photo here.

This looks like I need INPA or a specific scan tool.
