Re: Can you switch door lock cylinders between driver and passenger side Topic is solved

Re:

The majority of the fluid that does not come out when you drain the system is stuck in the pipes and oil cooler. 1. Drain the transmission by removing the drain plug.

Can you switch door lock cylinders between driver and passenger side Topic is solved

My driver side lock cylinder is I believe so worn out that on the last breath...to unlock the door I have to wiggle my key and pray for minutes in hope that the doors will open :)
Can I replace lock cylinder from passenger door to driver door? As I never use passenger door lock anyway.

Thank you

Re: Why is dashboard light bulb linked to my brake pedal?

Bad ground or poor bulb connection to the contact plates on taillights can cause this. I bet you have a dim brake light and one of the park lamps up fronts comes on when brakes are applied. You may not see it unless it is dark. If the brake light filament and the park light filament meet at the gro...
