Vent window installation notes
REMOVING AN ELECTRICALLY HEATED DRIVER'S SEAT
After freeing seat, slide it all the way forward then tilt it back to
expose seat wiring underneath. Detach three connectors:
leftmost: ws/rt, bn
middle: ws/gn, bn
rightmost: smallest one is tricky: look for hole holding locking bump
slide knife blade in on that side and spread lift up shell.
Slide off connector.
REMOVING A REAR SEAT BOLSTER
Need to remove rear seat bench and rear seat backs first, then
plastic side cups accepting seat back axle pins.
Pull top of bolster straight forward until it comes free. You need
to pull pretty hard. (All other panels and things come off much
Lift bolster up off lower hook.
REMOVING DRIVER'S SIDE CARPET to get at electrical raceways underneath
- Remove hood release lever.
- Pull back weather stripping around lower corner of front door.
- Turn slotted plastic screw below lever 90 deg CW then
remove right front side speaker grill.
- Remove round screw knob holding down carpet near gas pedal.
- I had a different style trim strip running the length of the door.
I pulled the rear of strip up and off the large plastic disk it was
attached to, moved the back of strip out then back down so that
it was next to disk. I then slide the trim strip forward and off.
It took a second set of hands to get it back on.
There was a ninth, 10 mm bolt under glove box light.
FUSEBOX CABLE CLAMP
Do not try to open it further per the instructions. You may lose one
of the three screws you need to remove down the sound insulation at
the front the driver foot well. Instead, insert tape covered screw
driver and depress a space for cables at the side of the wire bundle
passing through firewall.
TO REMOVE CENTER CONSOLE
First remove the glovebox. Then remove 3 screws forward and 1 plastic
nut by shift lever.
WHEN INSTALLING REAR VENT WINDOW MOTORS
Tape inside top nut in place to help start its mounting bolt.
PLACING DUAL VENT WINDOW RELAY
U.S. knee protection blocks relays assigned place. Clip it on to
a free space on the left front wall.
TERMINAL BLOCK ON FRONT LEFT WALL
Comes off by lifting straight up. When adding cables take care not loop
cables coming down front wall.
POWER SUPPLY LINE (Stromversorgungskabelbaum)
Wire Da (Sw/Gn) to ZKE (behind glovebox) is too short and X13254 pin
19 already had a Sw/Gn wire in it. Need to extend wire and splice
into existing Sw/Gn wire.
Wiring to fuse F13 is a bit goofy: it places the power relay upstream
of the fuse. I reversed this so the fuse is first. I first added new
2.5 mm^2 Rt wire from X9 B+ to one side of F13, then cut and spliced
harnesses to follow 9/95 German ETM 5133.0-06.
SUPPLEMENTARY WIRING HARNESS (Zusatzkabelbaum)
Wire L (Sw/Rt) to ZKE is too short and X13254 pin 18 already had a
Sw/Gn wire in it. Need to extend wire and splice into existing Sw/Rt
