Noweeds exhaust diverters - Ensure you have all the parts.
You will need most of this to get the Noweeds install job done.
First step remove front seat by removing the T50 torx screws behind the seat
Real pain in the ass to remove. Stubborn little @#$#. They had loctited the screws from the factory. Finally had to use an impact wrench to get them out.
Casualty in the seat removal process
Victim of the torx screws. Tried hammering this on the torx screws to loosen it but to no avail.
Finally both screws are out. Now let's remove the seat.
Need to disconnect the seat first though
To disconnect push the tab shown above in the direction highlighted and slid out the seat's connector
It's best to remove the seat harness connection. Makes it easier to work with the wires. Pops right out. Follow the direction of the arrows to pop it out
Pull out the fuse [no 35] for the seat . Trust but verify that there is no power.
Removed the seat power fuse[No 35] and slit open a part of the black and red+white wires to connect the noweeds power wires.
Now connect the noweeds power wires as shown
Went over board with the soldering. Better safe than sorry.
Put the fuse back and check the power again. Looks good so far
Cover it up with electrical tape
Power connections complete . Check
Power is good at the end points too. Woo hoo
Noweeds button faceplate is badly designed. Rubs and contorts horribly at certain seat positions so I cut away the parts that were rubbing.
Smoothing out the edges
Fixing the button faceplate
Faceplate position 1 facing down
Faceplate position 2 facing up. As you can see the white part was distorting the button faceplate in this position
Now lets jack the car up. Tedious stuff given the tight space in my garage. Be very careful when jacking up a car.
Getting ready to chop things up. Bye Bye stock exhaust. I was exhausted by the time I was done with it so no more pics after this one :(
