I'm having a similar issue but I think it's something else. Today the fuel pump kept clicking off but I only had 2/3 tank. Is there another issue here?

Those 2 bolts are a bear to get to. You need a skinny ooen end wrench (I believe 13mm) and plenty of patience. You have to get them from underneath. I was doing the alternator gasket so I would say...

Anyone have PDF for 2002-2003 Alternator Bracket R&R

It's 100% my...

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...
