Brake light switch is mounted behind the brake pedal, you'll see it

Let me take pics of the DME connection. Cuz explaining it won't help

EWS pinout #8 is near the pedal assembly, you will see it. It's a white box that says EWS on it. Pinout #8 is one of the empty connectors on the wiring harness to it. The pinouts are numbered.

Let me take some pictures of the wiring really quick... Give me a couple of mins

EDIT: added it to the DIY

A60004 is the fourth plug and then pin 23 (I think it is yellow) is numbered

all of this is fully detailed in the WDS and to some extent in the Bentley Manual

Thanks for the help i found PIN 23 and the EWS, I put in the pedal assembly today the clutch pedal and brake pedal, this is my daily driver so im doing things slowly.

The Module, clutch switch Mounts on to the Input cylinder clutch

Where Does The Clutch Switch Goes the one that mounts on to the pedal bracket?

The pipe that mounts on to the Input Cylinder Clutch where does that go through ? The same place as the hose which goes into the brake fluid EXPANSION TANK

The clutch switch goes in one of the mounting holes in the pedal assembly. The bottom one so that when you depress the clutch pedal, it presses the actuator in.

The pipe that mounts to the bottom of the master cylinder runs under the carpet towards the accelerator pedal area. There is a punch out that you need to get under the car and knock out. Its black felt

you need a pin and add it to the end of the wire - then it plugs right in to the EWS plug and then into the EWS

yeah I'm an idiot. Could you help me? I have wire running into the glove box but I dont know how to wire it? I have pulled the fuse panel down but I cant figure out how to wire it to the pinout...

Oh, and a little update to my swap. Transmission shifts like butter, EVO3 feels awesome, put a clutch stop in so now my shifts are pretty smooth... Now I just need to become a pro at hill starts.

And tomorrow is my birthday so I got a little present for myself... A Valentine1. Since my auto came with a 3.46 diff, speeding is so easy in this car. I find myself cruising at 60mph in the city and 95mph on the highway. I've always wanted a V1 so I figured why not. Cops here in Oklahoma are still using traditional radars so my money was well spent. I'll make another DIY for the install later in the week.
