Lighting control box question

Post by steveperryman » Wed Jul 19, 2017 4:58 am

Hi all, working on my first m151 a1 recovery / restore.. I'm having trouble inserting the headlight control box into the firewall... The back portion of the box seems have 2 layers of thickness, the first goes through the hole, the second bumps it. I could dremmel down the firewall to make it fit, but wanted to ask first if anyone knew why it wouldn't fit...

Photos were too big, so I put them in a shared album...

you are trying to install it from the wrong side, you install from the inside of the dash(removing one or more of the levers may make it easier), then use the screws to attach to dash
