Check to see that your exhust is securly afixed to the undercarriage also. That clunking noise is somthing you and I will have to live with. If you should live in a humid climate. Periodically remove the tailight housing and check for corrosion on the printed cirrcuit taillight assembly. Those lil suckers are expensive as hell and hard to find in a junk yard too. As for the filter. shit, I never have changed it. LOL. :) Peace Jay Evins
