I tried linking the photos from google photos and it seems to now not work for me. I will look into it and try and fix it tonight.

Sadly I was not able to figure out how to fix the pictures above so I have attached a PDF with the text and images. I also wanted to mention that we used pelican parts instructions to remove the dash and glovebox and they were excellent. We will be back with more thoughts on the system soon.

Here are some helpful links:

As an update, the car is doing great. The A/C was having an issue so we replaced the FSR which was theoretically easy but actually quite difficult physically. As a tip, I don't think it's the worse idea to remove the fsr before detaching the wiring harness. The wiring harness disconnect was the hardest part of our job.
