the fn' Hazard and DCT harnesses behind the center trim

How can you guys remove and reinstall these?

I struggled to remove them..


now trying to reinstall them.. they are impossible! Maybe i just have fat asian fingers!

I don't see myself doing this often in the future.. will probably have to avoid removing that damn piece from now on.


Any suggestions on how to get it in??

I struggled with this last night. I ended up cutting the felt tape that fastens the harness to the bottom edge of the vent duct. This way, I had a lot more slack to maneuver the cables into position.

use a flat head screwdriver. just play around with it, youll get it eventually. i just worked the side of it.

was tough to put back in but got it in. i too have chubby Asian fingers so its possible. just try to use your hand eye coordination and feel the clip.

Thin needle nose pliers works wonders!
