    You got a HELL of a deal on that P5 man, good on you!!

    Not jacking the thread but I was just curious since we're on the topic; does the intermittent wiper stalk swap render the rear wiper useless? Swapped my rear wiper with a mazda5 one and find myself using it quite a lot in the rain and don't want to lose the use of it if I make that swap.

    Also, should paint that rear valence black ;p

    If you get one from the SUVs, it keeps the rear wiper functioning

    From what I've found, MPV, Escape and '04 tribute stalks are compatible.
    But Escape/Tribute stalks apparently render the rear wiper useless, what SUV did you mean?

    The Escape/Tribute are essentially the same SUV. I just checked and I got mine out of an MPV. I believe they are the exact same stalk through all of the vehicles
    I'll send a picture to you

    They are not Phillips, they are JIS. They look the same but have different heads.

    You might want to invest in a JIS screwdriver.
    Mine are being shipped from France right now !!

    I used to drive the early Escape, I can say that is exactly the same as the one I had

    I went with just a bit set so I can use my socket driver with different length extensions... You can push harder and get more torque with the handle as well.

    Today I got my new Mspeed front lip! I need to prep, sand, fiberglass the end, and get it ready for paint. I think it’ll be a good project (as long as I don’t totally screw it up)
