      The headlights are not powered by the switch. Depending on whether they are halogen or HID, they are powered by a PWM signal from the CEM, or from the ballasts.

      Oh, your car has the vibration damper. Lucky you.

      I thought the shaft just pulled out from it after removing the six bolts. What do you think is holding it in?

      US cars with the daytime running light function keep the headlights on in positions 0 and II. You need a software load to override this.

      Check the flanges and gaskets between the exhaust sections. I bet one got knocked way out of place. With luck, you can wrestle it back into alignment and they'll re-seal.

      The ETM and pedal modules do not connect to the CEM, they go straight to the ECM I believe. In any case, I'd strongly suspect the accelerator pedal. Without VIDA it's unlikely you can be sure, so...

      This is a very common issue. It's caused by the spring inside the latch, which fatigues and breaks. You can fix it easily (and safely) by drilling out the four rivets, removing the shards, and using...

      It's the body number. It's only roughly sequential, and pretty much never matches the chassis VIN, which was assigned only when assembly was done.

      Be glad you don't have the original 3-relay voltage regulator, the big rectangular box one. That is one you definitely don't want to "adjust".

      The cut-in relay is quite sensitive, and a dirty...

      Well, the electric one is probably there for a reason. Maybe the diaphragm is pinholed, and parts weren't readily available but the FP was. Or maybe the lever that rides on the cam is mangled from...

      Right, like Ron points out, the only difference between Acc and "1" is the coil+, which of course is inside that armored cable. If yours has been cut open, connect the FP there. Otherwise, you may...

      Too thin for this job. Use ordinary motor oil, and a smear of cam grease on the breaker cam if you have it.

      And, don't worry about it too much. Enough oil flies around in there to keep things...

      Well yeah but it's too late for that, and in any case you should ALWAYS clean out every nook and cranny possible. One little shard in a main or rod bearing will ruin your whole day.

      It'll run great with the A cam, and since that's what the rest of the parts expect, you won't have to go back to square one to get it running right! Honestly, the differences aren't tremendous.
