I thought there might be some interest as to the procedures used for the Volt side impact campaign. I'm posting some pictures of the last one that I did.

First, the battery removal.

Next, the high and low voltage connections and the coolant connectors on the battery.

The new and old coolant reservoirs with the new reservoir on the right showing the added low coolant switch.

Finally, the spliced in new wiring harness to connect to the new low coolant switch.
