Re: seat bushes advice/help please

Have a look on YouTube as there is a step by step guide in three videos.
Don’t forget not to put the ignition on while the seat is out of the car otherwise the seatbelt light will need resetting.

Re: UFO in my car?

There should be a little red light on the dash, if you press it, it turns them off. This allows you can say leave a cat in the car and still put the alarm on.

When I did mine the light wouldn't go into my oven so I used a hot air gun to warm the glue after about 10 minutes the glue softened allowing me to part the light.
Then used the hot air gun to soften the glue enabling to put the headlight back together.
