I couldnt get into the trunk and only the rear doors would open. I probably could of opened everything up, but I didnt feel like digging to much. I t...

Honestly Ive had nothing but bad luck with the factory PCV valve. I built one out of a female threaded brass NPT nipple and a Male threaded brass NPT nipple and a ball bearing. I dont remember any of the sizes for it, but I think the instructions used to be on merkurtech.com

I've seen people make a mess, creating all sorts of holes, trying to get the tray removed entirely. Good point. The tray has a little bit of surface rust on it and I want...
