I did not remember that the airbag went down so much.
That's not really the airbag itself.

Then you can see well the existing wiring harness where you can attach the cable.
Exactly, just follow the existing wiring harness. ;)

Re: installing footwell lights - DIY

The A-Pillar just clips off, don't be afraid as the airbag isn't attached to it. But do route the cables the same way as the existing cables, you could potentially be snagging the roof airbags when they deploy if you have a wire around the front tether part. Curtain airbags do not deploy through th...

But then the clock will be running on the internal oscillator, and will usually drift off by a couple of minutes every 6 months.

Best option is to identify the station sending the bad data and contact them to get it fixed.

Re: Clock keeps moving forward one hour

That's all because of RDS bad info.

Unless they show you any physical damage in the light socket and you did not damage anything when manipulating it, warranty should cover. Also...
