Lmao, you'll find a way.

For your vert I recommend the following:

- Install the hardwire kit under the shifter area. Tape the 12v to the cig lighter and ground it to one of the bolts on the shifter assembly if possible
- Run the telephone cable (you'll need like 6-8 feet) from the shifter area, tuck it along the drivers foot well area, up the left a pillar to the headliner

Someone told me I can do it using the rear view mirror? Is that true?

Edit: I see you have a coupe... Idk, I see it's close to the bezel, but IDK, I'll post pics on sunday when I install.


part number for lever is : 25117543193
part number for knob is : 25117896031

This is the end all installation DIY FROM THE TOP!

Changed belts, tensioner pulley and waterpump wheel, the old main belt was about to break anything it was so cracked and dry. Some misshaps did happen though, broke one engine clip and one nut for the engine cover was lost and one dust cap couldn't be mounted for some reason

Re-did all of the wiring for my v1 and relocated my hardwire kit to the shifter area. Only thing left is to buy Savvy
