At least the OP tried looking in the owner's manual :) I like using the PDF version. Very easy to search.
Quoting for truth. Was trying to figure out how to do the all-window roll down thing to impress a coworker, but couldn't figure out how (thought it was a lock followed by a double tap of the remote start, WRONG). Searching the PDF manual on my phone surprised my coworker who never thought to keep the manual on their phone. I do this with almost all major appliances so when I need to lookup a part while at Home Depot or something, I know the appliance model number.
I too hate places that impact wrench everything. Every time I have warped brake rotors, it can be linked to someone messing with my wheels with an impact wrench. That's why I avoid letting the dealerships and tire shops rotate my tires. In fact I stopped rotating my tires altogether.
Huh, didn't know this was caused by over-torquing. TIL, I was shafted possibly by oil change shops on my old ICE when I had my rotors refinished TWICE over 10 years--the lube shops probably over-torqued my wheels during their "complementary" tire rotation.
