About the rear left dent: ….
I wasn’t sure if you were replying to me or something else. I looked at the picture of mine and I think most of what you see is reflection. I have some scrapes and it looks like I have one tiny crease but nothing that that really deforms it. Here is a shot with less reflection of unknown objects.

Obviously, I'm no expert. But, according to cartechbooks.com, you do not sub V for LV, or mix the two. This is what a quick Google search revealed. There is probably a discussion on this somewhere around here.

More of an expert in that than I am in recognizing typos. I thought the L was a typo. I had not heard of low viscosity. Either way, here is 12 quarts for $74 with free shipping, or $6.17/qt

Finally got around to removing the center console again on my 03 SEL. Years ago I installed a PIE3 interface to get AUX input through the CD player. Always worked but had some bad ground loop issues if I was using any cigarette charger. Mounted a ground loop isolator direct to the PIE3 RCA inputs and working like a champ. Decided now that was fixed I cleaned up my SoundBot SB360 install which was always running on a battery before the ground loop was fixed.

Also long overdue I swapped out the shifter light bulbs with LEDs I’ve had for years from when I did my gauge cluster LEDs. The shifter lights were always too bright in comparison to the dash and more so with the LEDs. A 2.2kOHM resistor fixed that nicely so now everything dims in unison.

Hoping this is the last time I tear into the console as it can be a PITA at times.

So my drivers seat was sagging a lot (2007 Taurus, 183000 miles)-- I looked under it and the springs were all broken and hanging and the foam was ripped. I found JUST the bottom seat, same color and fabric, on Ebay for 80 bucks and pulled the old seat out and swapped out the bottom part. I had to pull the battery cable off just to be safe, and after I put it all back together I went for a drive and am finding the trans is bucking from 2 into 3rd. I'm wondering if it needs to re-learn. Never a dull moment with a taurus!

Water getting in the back. Saw the glass at the top was not down to the seal, hinge up on the top where it fastens to the metal. I thought it was broken but found only the nut was way, way loose. I took the hinge off an checked it, put some silicone gasket stuff around the rubber as it was not as soft as new so good seal to the metal. Pic in my library for future use. Cant use deep wall socket, as the screw axis does not point to the center of the access hole. Pic shows the alignment with normal socket and extension for good alignment. Nut is special, has a very large washer attached to it. If you drop that it will go to the black hole. Tightened all and glass to seal is now fine. No idea why that nut would come loose anyway. Now to get all that trim put back and all the clips in their slots. Checked all the other nuts for being OK.
