I need to review the damages to my car again ... haven't even taking a look at it yet.

Came to a point of not caring for the week.

That sucks Paul. Glad it didn't get pulled down by the belt. How you keep blowing mounts?

I'm thinking you over tightened the power steering line causing the o-ring to distort slightly which caused it to fail prematurely. It's the only thing I can think of causing the leak.

^This

Spot on, if this were a lottery you have won the jack pot


I go through mounts about once a year. This one just went a lot quicker than the others. I'm guessing from all the hijinks we did the night of the party was the nail in the coffin for it. Good thing they are only 16 bucks plus shipping from rockauto.

Got something along the same lines, I talked with the guy who sold me my black interior today. He has a tan headliner out of a 2010 focus WITH the rear dome light and when I asked him how much he would take for it and install he said, No cost as long as he could keep my old one! The 2010 one has a crease on it from the old vehicle that it was in but I am not to worried, gonna take a whack at it with me heat gun and try to smooth it out. Also gotta wire the second dome light, needless to say I am excite!
