    Yes, similar to what I had before adding overdrive. The washer pump was located in the OD switch hole. But having a heater and moving the pump to that location between the glove box and instruments...

    General Tech NOS Paper Air Filters, Shelf Life

    The WIX folks inform me that NOS air filters that have been on the shelf for more than 5-7 years begin to deteriorate. Has anyone had practical experience with that phenomenon?
