    @TechGuru: Thanks for your help! The ECM and IC are NOT paired. I had "thought" about buying an ECM that has 2 keys and is already flashed. HOWEVER, as it turns out, I think, the IC also needs to be flashed to recognize the new ECM, correct? So my thoughts are just get a cheap ECM and then...

    Rear Glass for Hatch - Help Needed Desparately

    I live in Ecuador and the paint shop just shattered my rear window. I am concerned that I will not get the correct part. My question: Does the rear glass on these models go all of the way from the hinges to the bottom of the seal? This would mean that the fiberglass trim fits OVER the rear...
