When I took my sump off I was surprised at how clean the screen was as well. And you are welcome for the videos. I am editing more as we "speak".Sweet, thanks for the videos Cap'n.
I just finished replacing the front control arms & ball joints, as well as dropping the sump while doing an oil change. Screen was incredibly clean, so I only had to replace the o-ring.
did you use the relay designed for this or the wire method?I did the 666* modification to my Aero and my wifes Arc. Very easy with some spade connectors and a crimper. Took 20 minutes and that included searching around for the crimpers. I can't believe that these cars have had four halogen bulbs in there from the factory for 17 years that never once lit up. They all still work too and it was a pleasure to take the Aero for a ride on the dark back roads with a hell of a lot more light. Why would they have disabled these lights for the American market? Some government regulation? Obviously the NTSB or whatever agency enforces such things threw out that regulation or just ignores it now seeing how much light modern cars produce.
*This allows the inner, halogen bulbs to come on with the high beams in addition to the HID bulbs.
