Thanks, I did a quick search. How come sellers list them as only being compatible through 2002 bulls?

What color did you like best/reccomend? (My interior is brown/tan)

They'll fit any year, but that was probably the last year they were officially made for. If you have a tan interior try to find a tan or black set.

Hit up the yards today looking for a console lid, as mine had cracked internally. Last car in the second yard I was at, in about the 50th Bull I checked, I found one that was in decent enough shape, with a small bonus.



2007 SEL, also had the woodgrain wheel but with it being a 4.5, not swappable.

Got it cleaned up and installed.




And put the knob in, thought I'd go for a change from the leather.

Had the car in last week to get another recharge + dye added, so they could find the slow leak.

Dropped it off last night, got the diagnosis today: cracked condenser (replaced in 2016, so out of warranty now). It'll be about $330-$360 including parts. Could be worse, but she's definitely getting a frown or two when I get her back.

I havenít asked if it just cracked or was damaged from road debris. Plan to do so tomorrow.

I actually found a way to swap a 4.5 wheel to a 4.0 car without cutting wires. I'll show how it was done when I have time to do a writeup, lol

And it's back. Ended up only being $275, plus the $52 for the diagnostic + recharge the week prior.

As far as they can tell, the condenser simply failed - no evidence of road damage.
