Well

To be honest with you. Ford just released the latest tsb update and they dont want us cleaning anymore. Just cuz there a lil dirty doesnt mean they need to be cleaned. I have seen some with 60,000 miles and never been out and there fine. Ford found out that cleaning them wasnt good enough so we replace them now.
