well i'm still kinda waiting to find out where to get that primer too.soon would be nice gonna be going to get paint next week to start the interior
some asked if u pull out your airbags will your car still run the answer is yes but make sure u leave the airbag computer box that is under the passanger seat plugged in otherwise it will not run
very nice job on the painting the interior part i owned a 1998 jetta yes i was dum for selling it but hey and i painted the interior blue and white with the krylon fusion and all my buddies said they have never seen a painted interior that looked that goood just put a bunch of coats on it and i didn't even use a clear coat and it was just fine
anyone know how to get the ebrake handle off, i have been trying to get that off so any help on that matter would be appriciated. <br>
The ebrake handle needs to be cut off in order to remove it.
Additionally, most ebrakes are straight - ours however, is curved. If you have an aftermarket knob, it's going to require some modification to the ebrake handle mount to get it on there. <br>

Today I installed my neon tubes under my dash through the fuse box and used a fuse tap, and tonight when I had them on I noticed that my HVAC knobs and my dimmer lights were not working at all. Whats wrong?
I'm not big I play big

17. How do I remove my steering wheel?
Disconnect your battery. If you have Theftloc or something similar, make sure you have the activation code before disconnecting your battery. Remove the airbag fuse from the fuse panel. Turn your steering wheel straight forward, place the ignition in the "Lock" position, and lock your steering wheel. There are two bolts in the back of the trim, they face the driver. Remove both. Remove the airbag module and disconnect all wires attached to it (the main connector, and the horn lead/ground). If you're worried about it going off, be sure to carry the airbag with the front facing away from you. Put it somewhere it won't get damaged, with the front facing up. Remove the nut on the steering wheel. If the steering wheel & steering shaft don't have an alignment mark, mark them now. Use a steering wheel puller to remove your steering wheel. Anything else could cause permanent damage to either the wheel or shaft. Don't let the shaft turn while the steering wheel is removed!! You'll have to recenter the airbag coil if you do!
Where do I get the activation code from? What if I don't have it...will the car not start? Once I have the code, why do I need it? How do I get this code back in the car?
Eh...old man with a Corvette now...it was bound to happen sooner rather than later right?
Hey...the auto to manual shift knob link isn't working. Could someone post one that is working? Thanks.
For the rattles in the dash and door panels, just use adhesive-backed felt tape, available in the crafts section at your local friendly Wal-Mart. Cut and fit accordingly, and use it over the screw holes also (the screws will cut through the thin felt fabric.). Use liberally, and everywhere that you can think of. Reassemble your dash, and make sure everything is tight. And then, presto!!! A rattle-free dash a Lexus would be jealous of.

Yea, I'm trying to clear my HVAC knobs, please anyone have a FAQ for that?
Thanks, and great FAQ I'm printing it now!
Clear knobs eh? Just full the rubber part off, you may heat it up if you want to, but mine pulled off with minimal effort.
I was thinking about swapping buckets into where the bench was, but i was worried about how high they will sit with the sliders, any insight into this? or pictures of it completed?
^ wow, that's a lot of information. Thanks for throwing that up here. I should've added this next bit to the FAQ when I first wrote it, but I didn't. Shame on me.
My dash is cracked, is cracking, or will crack up near the window. How can I fix this, or even better, prevent it?
First things first: this is not due to body roll, extreme temperatures, sun baking, overzealous driving, or any of that related nonsense. It's actually caused by a couple of over-tightened bolts
which, when combined with some of the aforementioned issues, can cause the dash to crack.
How can you prevent this, additional cracks, or keep the crack from getting bigger? Remove your dash pad, instructions for this can be found at TFM which is linked early in this thread. After doing this, you'll see two brass bolts - one is just to the left of the center vent and in plain view, the other is just above the passenger-side airbag and is in a recessed hole. Back these two bolts up half a turn, and you're done!
Note: this may result in additional squeaking. Solution? Remove the bolts, and purchase a pair of 1/8"-1/4" or so thick rubber/plastic washers. Slip them on the bolts and re-install.
