Get the vacuum fill tool, suck the air out, and fill. If you start with a vacuum you can't end up with air in the system.

For a long time I left it in place. Over the course of many car shows, the plastic part got a bit of a warp in it and it started popping off the back of the dash where it clips in. Then I peeled and...

Update:

The chrome trim ring isn't a trim ring, it's two trim rings. There is a larger piano black ring and a smaller, inner chrome/plastic part. They snap together.

99% sure. The car has only been out of my sight at dealer service shops three times, and never for rattles. The closest any dealer service shop has come to working in that area was after I became an...

No. My understanding is that Bluetooth was added for 2009, but the USB input was a 2010 thing only. I could be wrong (it was ten years ago), but I don't think any production Kappas left the factory...

The head unit with USB input was to be added for the 2010 model year. Those that have them bought them from ICS, who bought all the unused parts inventory from Wilmington.
