    Just noticed today that this panel was loose, underneath the glovebox area. Anyone know what this panel is for? Is it just part of the interior trim piece? It’s front passenger area.

    How do I tighten it? And the orange light...I’m assuming thats the footwell light?

    Here’s a pic. Thanks!

    Yes, it's just a finish piece to keep the guts of the heater and ECU village out of sight. It's just clipped in by those few squeeze clips on the near end and a tab on the forward end sticking into a slot. It wiggles a bit. And that is the footwell light.

    If my Fetzer valve started glowing orange like that, I sure wouldn't be hanging around to take pictures.
