It will go up, pull harder but do it near the fender end so you don't have to take the entire piece out.

ok, I will try later, it was damn impossible. Does the relay have to be grounded? Or not. Mine didn't come with the blue taps. Now I have to go look for it.

No, just the ground wire and that's it.

angel eyes help.

Tap the wire that goes to the ecu to a 12 volt wire. Ie the + battery terminal. Honestly I was extremely nervous about tapping into the ecu wires as we'll but just go slow with it, I'm assuming you bought ones with the wire connector for the wire tap and just make sure you got the right wire. I detest wiring with a fiery passion but it's super easy!

It's on the fastm diy. Touch the ground to a ground and positive/trigger wire to the positive terminal.

Do not place the ground under the mount of the relay. Put it on the 19mm bolt.
