I found a Rubber Grommet on the Passenger side too under the carpet.

I started wiring mine up today.

I could have sworn someone asked if there was on on the passenger side.

i have talked to a few members on here about my problem with my OHC, i'll keep it short and try not to confuse you.

I got the OHC installed, one of the map/dome lights didnt work. so i went to a yard and got a 2nd OHC. the map/dome lights work. but now my temp reading it 140*F. i put the old one back in thinking it might be a bad OHC but the same thing happend. the temp sensor is brand new (from auto zone)

good write up, Im jw about when you drill the 2 holes and the openings for the 2 tabs, how do you get the bracket to just bolt up to those holes you just drilled? from the pics it doesnt look like you can get to the other side of what you just drilled holes in like for a nut on the bolt or anything, just use self tapping screws? thanks
