I too would like a picture guide to this please.

question--how does one reset the check engine light after unplugging the vacuum source to the flapper actuator? I have a rattle going on and would like to see if this is the problem, but I do not want to trigger a CEL if it cannot be cleared. Thanks!

Hate to threadjack, but I'm in the Detroit area too. Where's this junkyard at? What's the name?

I just got my hands on a new focus and am planning on fixing up my zts for my kid. I need a few parts.

Thats awesome. Do they have any svt's? Looking for rear brake caliper bracket= the bracket that bolts the caliper to the spindle? 1 part fit either side= no left or right.

matmatician I already got a new one installed :/ thanks for the offer though!

Semir I could probably pull one from the junkyard for you. There's a few 2.3 intake manifolds if you want one...pay shipping and the cost of the part it's yours
