      Could you post a pic of which coolant pipe rubbed through? My 42DD intake rubs and I thought it looked like it would be fine but now I think I may have to watch it more closely. Thanks :thumbup:

      If you disconnected your battery during the install that could be the culprit. Just drive it a short distance and the lights should go out.

      I definitely got at mine from the bottom. I reached from the rear of the subframe, arm went above the subframe, and I felt around to find it. I don't remember if I used a ratcheting wrench or a...

      RB 4 door on North Kelsey in Monroe, WA at 8:15. Too far away to see mods.

      I don't see many north of Seattle.

      I've only had the interior panel off to install door warning lights. I never looked at the other panel (I think it covers the window regulator?). Maybe you can grab it with a magnet? Good luck.
