My bad. I'm guessing that is because of heating issues which would be minimal outside, but I get it. I might even have known that at some point. The single wire stuff is tmmw or something like that, it has a higher temp rated insulation. --R (sent from my miniPad) On Sep 3, 2015, at 6:25

The lumbar bladder, NOT the orthopedic one that has like 5 different sections, is a piece of cake to replace. You can do it through the back cover, which comes off with a couple of screws at the bottom and then just pulling down to remove it. With the back cover off you can see the old one.

OM617, right? I think the first step is to loosen the top and bottom bolts on each mount, then raise the engine by jack with a big piece of wood supporting the oil pan. There may be heat shields and stuff (exhaust?) to remove prior. From foggy memory, get the new mounts top bolt going first,
