Default SSEI @ junkyard

I wish I had some money today because I would've bought that whole engine and the trans. It had 180K miles on it and it looked like the owner kept it in good shape. The interior was black, I tried so hard to those leather covers off the seats because I'm in the process of getting a black interior by any means. I was sweating and thirsty as hell. That dam headrest is what made me stop. I couldn't get it off there were like 2 clip looking things on the headrest poles. I was mad, I hate giving up on ****, but I just didn't have the time. The seats were flawless. I hope the car is still there Monday (half off day) so I can get the seats for $10 each As of right now I'm still thinking about that interior and engine.

You need a thin piece of metal to push down along the rods to release the headrests on an SSEi. I modified mine when I installed my headrest camera mount so I don't need a tool.

If it had an engine cover as opposed to a SC cover, it wasn't a 95. It was 96 or newer. Look at the build date on the driver'* door edge near the latch.

No it was a SC cover like yours will. it had those '95 style white rims. Can't really explain them.
