Two cables are routed to the display monitor in each seat. Correction Do This Don’t Do This Install display monitor cable connector clamps. Do Not replace the DVD system display monitor. Important: A number of headrest monitors have been replaced under warranty and in many cases, no trouble was found by the supplier when these units were analyzed. Therefore, technicians should be checking for loose connections and installing cable connector clamps to ensure a positive and robust connection. Technicians are to install a video cable connector clamp on each cable connector located under each front seat. A total of four cable connector clamps, P/N 19159659, are required for each vehicle.

(It is not required but always recommended that you replace the old U-bolts with new ones.) 7. Lower the axle supporting the axle with a jack, to allow proper clearance for removal and installation of new springs. Be extremely careful not to over extended brake lines and abs lines if the vehicle is so equipped. (Note it may be easier to remove the brake caliper and hang out of the way. Never allow the brake caliper to just hang by the brake line.) 8. Now remove the front and rear spring hanger bolts and carefully remove the old leaf spring. (Note an assistant on the removal and installation of the leaf spring may ease the process and prevent injury due to the weight of the leaf packs) 9.Install the new leaf pack and hanger bolts leave hardware loose at this time.(It is not required but always recommended to replace hanger bolts with new ones) (Note Loosening the shackle bolt so it moves freely will ease spring installing.) 10.
