    Hello, I bought a 1995 Civic LX second-hand, so I'm not sure if this security light and rectangular "cut-out" is OEM or a post-purchase modification. Which is it?

    I popped the rectangular thing out, as you can see in the 2nd pic. But I can't pull it out much further. The wire must be short.

    Some questions:
    1. How can I pull it much further, so that I can remove and replace the light?
    2. What would the electrical specs of the power be (volts, amps, etc?)
    3. What dimensions (of the hole) am I working with (minimum or maximum dimensions)?

    Removing the lower cover should give access to a 2P connector with two LED wires on the rear side of the rectangular dash insert.

    If you have access to Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can easily create a searchable PDF using the "recognize text" function.

    Unfortunately, I don't have Adobe Acrobat Pro.

    I'll make it text searchable for you, and post it here when done.

    I converted the manual to searchable text.

    However, the file size is 97 MB, which is above the upload size limit for this site.

    I wonder if a moderator could help?
