My 03 does not have that chrome ring. Not sure what that about. Might have been added to make it look a little more bling? There's a video on YouTube about removing them. Took me 5 minutes to do both.

The first indication that my battery was going bad was that the A/C would not go on MAX. It would only blow about 40-50% no matter what I pushed. This is a tell-tale sign that your battery needs to...
