The fire chief never mentioned a fuel leak? If so, I wonder why not. Could it have been that the fire burned hot enough and long enough to cause the fuel pump to drop from its installed location?

You being a martyr is a good deal of the fun and the "ground truth" about your better half was always there "between the lines", for me anyway. It is amusing to occasionally hear of your "rough GT...

Well, you tried but seemed to have focused to narrowly on the shifter. Three strikes and you are "out"? How severe is that?

$600 for a knob or is there more to it?

Parking Sensor / Rear Camera

My diamond button does not affect my trunk, only the hatch. The button above it pops the trunk.

I guess I did. My apologies.
