    I have a more fun car to drive with Honda Sensing, Apple Car Play, better sound system, more space, remote start. Loved my Prius for the purpose I needed it for. 93k and it was time to get something with less miles and some fun.

    Planning to remove my passenger seat for a sub install. Is it recommended to disconnect the battery first? I'm assuming so, but figured I'd ask because I'm not 100%.

    Yeah I would disco the battery. It has the air bag sensor and you dont want that bad boy going off while you try to snug in a sub!

    That's what I thought. I've been hit in the face by an air bag before. It's not pleasant.

    By the way, anyone know what that lower metal box under the passenger seat is for?

    There's 2.

    1. Has stuff connected to it, I imagine that's for the airbag.

    2. I can't get a good look, it's below some plastic. Thinking to remove the plastic and relocate the lower box. Just curious what it does. 1560359395720.jpg

    Did they increase room in the Civic? last time I sat in one the front seat in it's furthest track extent touched the back seat, this was in the 4 door model. I still didn't have much legroom up front.

    A little bit over 4 years. Ground cable could not be removed without breaking the terminal. Not a good situation indeed

    huh? Just cut the bolt off. I've done that a few times with batteries like that. OR cut the cable.
    It's going to have to be replaced anyways....

    They did. The car is 5 inches longer and 2 inches wider. I was looking at an Accord until I drove the 10th Gen Civic. IMG_0729.jpg

    Wish it was that easy. Negative battery terminal had signs of cracking from the base, so even when removing the cable the damage was already done.

    The safest and practical thing to be done was to buy another battery with a new negative ground cable from Toyota
