Re: [DML] Minor electrical issues(headlight and Interior)

I wouldn't get hung up on the body panels. It's really not that bad.

Here are the main ones that bear cleaning and re-assembly:

1. Battery ground cable to passenger side trailing arm bolt (don't 
forget to remove the lock nut on the back side first!

2. Bulkhead ground feed-through, accessed from inside the rear 
vertical panel and outside under the coil cover. Do the "hot" 
connection feed through at the same time.While your at it clean 
and/or replace all the fuses and relays. 

3. Bulkhead to frame ground, just below the coolant header bottle

4. Engine Ground Strap around passenger side motor mount

5. Front frame at the frame end of both upper radiator supports

6. Just to the right of the radio on the center panel. You have to 
remove the console to see this one. 

It's good to clean the hot wires to the starter and alternator, as 
well as all the feed-through plugs on the bulkhead. Also get the 
plugs on the steering column. 

Pull the front grille off and clean the parking light connectors 
hidden back there. Same with the fixtures/bulbs. 

Clean and tighten connections on the tail light boards and license 
plate lights.

It's not a bad idea to unplug and reconnect every connector you find, 
and clean/tighten the contacts a bit. You'll be amazed at how much 
better everything works, and how much brighter all your lights are.
