    Carefully blow out from either end. You can cut the convoluted end off the drains behind the fender vents. Stuff tend to back up at this restriction.

    Air Suspension Compatibility...

    The electrical connectors -on the Sport- control a solenoid in the strut. This is to change damping based on driving conditions. The strut its self is basically the same.

    Water leak from dome light?

    Sometimes the rear drain tubes will have slight bow- upwards- that can cause the sunroof not to drain. You can cut an inch off the hose and reinsert it on the barbed fitting.

    Dealership Multi-Point Inspection INSANE Recommendations!

    The dealership is just covering their a$$. If you took it somewhere else - after you had the recall done- and they pointed all that stuff out. You would be raising hell at the dealership. No? You do not have to approve anything you don't want. Just my $0.02

    AC Not Blowing Cold...Sometimes

    Check the motor mounts. Collapsed motor mounts will cause the engine cooling fan to get stuck on the fan shroud and not turn. With the engine off, turn the fan by hand a see how easy it turns. Should be some slight resistance, but not a lot.

    Auxiliary chain and sprocket change

    Cool. Just put some rags in the oil pan, in case you drop something. Also, you can shorten the torx bolt a couple mm to make reassembly easier. You would also need the tool to reset the fuel pump drive timing.

    high pitched brief squealing coming from engine

    Could be the A/C compressor clutch making the noise. Look at the clutch and see if it is rusty. See if you can duplicate it with the A/C off.

    Auxiliary chain and sprocket change

    It's been a while. But, if I remember, I used a pair of pliers to turn the bolt all the way out until it was tight against the lower cover. Then was able to pry it out with the guide. Why are you changing the chain?

    Auxiliary chain and sprocket change

    It is possible. The torx bolt will come out. But it is no easy task. Some new curse words will be invented during the removal process. Still beats pulling the engine and removing the oil pan and bed plate.

    05 LR3 transmission trouble

    Believe it or not. Not using OEM tail light bulbs can cause the issue you described. I have seen it many times before. The tail lights are wired into the same circuits as the trans.
