This could well explain why the donor car I've been comparing the wiring in my car with has a bolt and a replacement ground wire going to the rear earth point... Each rear light cluster in the donor car has one actually. >If you do need to drop the knee bolster, remove the steering wheel. >Take out the ashtray, and unbolt the center console if you have one (one >bolt behind ashtray, two screws under the center ribbed rubber strip at >the bottom). >Where the console bolted in behind the ashtray is a larger bolt (13 or >14mm I think) remove that. >Then, underneith the hood, in the inner wing directly under the corners >of the windshield, there is a 10mm bolt on each side of the car.
