    I take it you don't have YDS yourself? Some can be unplugged, some will cause an alarm if unplugged. Each has it's own ECU input pin. Names given in the service manual :

    Disagree Saum700p - I'm with pwc4life on this ... it's a big deal. Old stock becomes OEM parts inventory for years following - aka no dire need to exhaust it. Yet more-over, I checked the 2021 part...

    I could be mistaken, but the black doughnut, as you say, seems more to me like a type of primer, more a “sealer”. This is common when ordinary paint, say automotive single-stage paint will come into...

    No expert here ... but I can comment a little something about paints.
