    Sunroof Issue

    You can disable it in Techstream. Did it to mine a few months ago to reduce the wear on the motors as they were groaning a lot. I think it was under utility on the Tilt&TelescopicLive tab.

    Need Help - PCV grommet pieces feel in valve cover and cannot see them.

    The two areas are separated, so you won't be able to pull out pieces from the oil fill tube (I had the same issue last weekend). You can duct tape a small hose to the end of your shop vac and it may provide enough suction to pull up the pieces.

    The ABCs of AHC - How to Measure, Flush, and Adjust all in one place
