comment How do FRAM oil filters stand up to their competition?
@BrianKnoblauch Once upon a time, the orange cans were good filters, at least that's what I've heard. They haven't been since at least 1999 if you believe the site I linked to. Again, according the to linked source, the Mobil 1 has a nitrile anti-drainback valve. At least they did in 2008. They could have changed manufacturers or designs again.

comment What could be the reason for intermittent behavior of a window switch?
@tooshel Try that again when it's not working, if possible. Transient problems are the worst. As far as things that could be susceptible to heat, just about everything. I could believe thermal cycling as the cause for an intermittent fault in the switches, wiring or motor.

comment Adhesive for use with a foam liner under the door panel
The spray works. I was in a hurry to get the panel back on, so I grabbed a can from the local parts store. I'm happy with the job considering it's my daily driver. For my Garage Queen, I think I'd like a liquid version. Good to hear it should be available. 3M makes an adhesive remover, too, that was handy for getting the last bits of the adhesive off the door metal.

Flat vehicle battery of flat intelligent access remote battery? The latter is easy to work around, the former might be tricky.

Also, you're going to want a way in that does the least amount of damage, a thief would probably want the quickest way in.
