Then with the center panel out try flipping the flap lever to another setting and squeezing the flap board in your hands.

squeezing how Roger?  do you mean bending trying to reveal missing resin?  I don't know how you squeeze a board.

Mine needs to be checked

Squeeze the top and bottom units together. It may even take a slight force. There have been broken solder joints and sometimes they will re-connect and then that will tell you what to look for.

Ask CT4me. His was exactly like that.

Thank you Roger for this tip, we tried this yesterday on my 2006 CTSW that had been experiencing unexplained flap deployment issues.  As we squeezed the board flap operation became intermittent.  Interesting to see the broader maintenance issues emerge as the fleet ages, first ignition modules and now flaps.
