Scion TC: I am installing a Toyota LED daytime running light

This answer was rated:

I am installing a Toyota LED daytime running light system into a Scion TC 2012.

The instruction say to remove the knee airbag, not connector, just assembly.

I can't get to the upper air bag bolts, got any ideas?

Toyota Service :

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you with the following directions:

Toyota Service :

Remove the lower steering column cover

Toyota Service :

Push the right and left sides of the lower steering column cover and detach the 4 claws

Toyota Service :

While turning the steering wheel to the right and left, using a screwdriver, detach the 2 claws and remove the lower steering column cover

Toyota Service :

Remove the lower instrument panel cover

Toyota Service :

Now remove the negative battery terminal connector and wait 2 minutes before proceeding

Toyota Service :

Remove the 4 bolts that holds the lower instrument panel cover on

Toyota Service :

 


Detach the 6 claws and 2 guides and remove the lower knee airbag

Toyota Service :

Once you have the lower cover off, you should be able to see the knee bag upper bolts

Customer :

What does Toyota typically charge for this install?

Toyota Service :

About 2 hours

Toyota Service :

It is imperative that you disconnect the Negative battery terminal before doing this

Customer :

Right. Don't want the airbag going off or an errant spark.

Toyota Service :

Do you need a picture?

Customer :

Yes, please

Toyota Service :

Full Size Image

Toyota Service :

Look closely at the picture, in the opening under the steering column cover area (top center)

Toyota Service :

This is where the upper knee bag bolts are

Customer :

What is the going rate for Toyota labor, and I bought this from a dealer out of state, but it is a Toyota part.

Customer :

I assume if Toyota did it, it would cost $200-$250?

Toyota Service :

Around 200-225

Customer :

That sound mor like a Lexus rate :)

Is junction c46 a small gray connector (4 slots) in power mirror area?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Do you have a diagram of connector c46?

C46 is a Grey 4 wire connector

 

This is the "Option Connector" (front fog light switch)

 

That is how Toyota refers to it. 4 connections in a line.

 

Sorry, I to not have a picture.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


There is a small 4wire connector in the power harness to the power mirrors, it is not connected to anything.There is also a C25 connector, it appears to be the power mirror connector?

C25 is for the mirrors; it is a flat 10 wire connector

 

 

C46 is under the dash, on the driver side.
