Yes, the adhesive backing is real forgiving. So it let's you adjust as needed. Didn't use any soapy water or anything.

I also like the switch I used for the a/c disable switch as it blends in well with the dash.

Yes you have to pull it out for the a/c to work. Without that switch The a/c compressor comes on in all settings except floor & vent. With the 4.0L you probably dont notice the drag it puts on the engine while engauged. But with the 2.3 it feels like you lost about 20% of your HP.

So this winter when I need defrost I am able to run the defrost without the A/C compressor kicking on & robbing me of power & MPG.

I've been wondering if my AC was on when I had it on "windscreen", because I've been getting a lot of condensation on the outside when driving at night. How hard was the AC kill switch to do? I read the article, but I'm a noob. Something that looks dead easy from the pics might have me pulling out my hair from lack of experience.
