Hi Darin,

Just to add a bit to what Dave and Steve already said...

The best thing would be to remove the heater box and everything else that
you can get to. It's a little time consuming but it make getting the harnes
out a lot easier. As mentioned, the harness is strapped down at many points
on the floor, firewall and wiring trays. Just when you think you've got them
all, you find another one! When I did mine, I debated for a while which way
to pull it. In the end I actually pulled it through from the engine side and
it came pretty easily. I'm not sure if there's an advantage either way. In
any case, that sticky red take is horrible! Another tip; try to take as many
of the firewall grommets from the 200 as you can. You'll find places for
