    Rattle and clunk fixing day today. Had an annoying little tapping from under the passenger side dash. Turned out to be the piece of trim under the glove box. Wrapped the piece that fits into a little opening near the firewall and that fixed that. The clunk was somewhere under the front end and it was subtle but had been driving me crazy. Turned out that one of the bolts holding the skid plate on was loose, courtesy of my recent dealer oil change no doubt. Anyway, huge relief to find it and eliminate that clunk.

    Started yesterday ... hopefully finishing today :facepalm: No idea how it happened but I guess I should have switched to the metal one when I originally wanted to instead of being put in a situation where I had to. Luckily I was able to get the pos plastic one out after both tabs snapped off as that would have been a way worse situation. We only have the one vehicle so the wife was less than amused that I put it out of commission for a day or two. Here's to upgrades no matter how you get to them hahaha :cheers:

    just got the Gobi rack installed. I am blown away at how tough and well-made This rack is. Not the cheapest option but worth every penny. Freaking love it!

    Pretty cool. Is there a way to wash your roof without removing the rack?

    It doesn’t get that dirty or it’s not visible enough to be noticed under the rack but if it did get really dirty, pressure washer or any hose fits easily between roof and rack. I’ve washed my roof probably only twice in the past 2 years

    Despite seeing all the 6th gen interior I'm so happy to be inside the basic 5th gen.
    (BTW, just realized iPhone15 camera quality is little bad vs my old Note10+.)

    Ok, the chances of @Borracho Loco seeing me being a poser are low enough, I'm gonna need a link on that 40th drawer.

    Worked on my wiring setup
    How I was gonna route power to the rear
    Passenger side is for surge plate n driver side is blocked by ARB compressor
    Removed the manifold for more room to reach gaskets…
    IMG_2396.jpg IMG_2397.jpg IMG_2398.jpg

    …discovered I need a new manifold…

    no idea, the bolt heads on the outside are perfect
    Can’t tell what it is(other than rust)
    Almost like salt water corrosion???

    who knows but always worth checking if you have a compressor with a manifold

    @kpmhspirit Thanks! I'm in the same boat. Those cubbies are pretty useless as is and especially the little one. I think I want that one just to fill the spot. I'll stay away from the 1 of 4040 though.

    Went with a hammer and a screw driver as that was what I had available :D Got it off!

    Back up and running with the upgraded housing! Don't worry, I changed out the tubes.

    Congrats on getting it sorted and on the upgrade. For anyone else worried about breaking the tabs off of the plastic housing, consider purchasing the Motivx Tools MX2320-US wrench as it wont break the tabs.

    One thing I noticed about the tool I have (bought it at Autozone) is that it "fits" in a couple positions. But it fits better (correctly) only one way.

    100% I always used it in the position where the tabs filled the whole slot so that it was locked in fully and as deep as possible.

    That's why I got one. I chipped one of the tabs on our Camry. The Motivx is a much better tool.
