for those of you that have a factory block heater, can you tell me where the heck the cord is and how to get it out? temps are dropping pretty fast here and I am going to need to plug my car in soon...thanks in advance...

The cord is likely to be tied up in the upper left hand corner of the engine bay (when looking backward, toward the vehicle's underhood.) In front of the passenger seat near the firewall, right behind the airbox/ intake tube. You can just see the wires tied up behind my airbox!

thanks Captain...I am just going to take it to the dealer's drive through and they can get it out...too cold now to be digging around for it:rant2:

It should just be one zip tie that needs to be cut and it should come loose.
Just for your info.
What section of Canada are ya from? :D

I am actually in Saskatchewan as well...Regina, to be exact...
My Block heater chord plug was hanging downward exactly where the Captain said. There was enough slack on mine so I left it tied and just pulled the plug up where it stays nicely in place.
Captain, your Air box looks different then mine...that custom?? I was thinking of a cone KNN for some extra hp and mpg...thinking it may be loud though....

Hey! I visit/pass through Regina quite regularly! What colour and trim is yours? Maybe i've seen ya around! :D
MLEO I have a KPE intake with an AEM Filter an hydroshield. It is way louder then stock though! Old people don't like it... lol

I have a 2011 luxury in mocha steel with a tan interior...good thing you provided the pic because when I took it in to the dealer this weekend I had to tell them where I thought it was...the guy was looking on the other side...:)
Thanks Captain! And Looks like I finally get to pick up the mesh grille soon.....probably going to install it in summer with help from a previous thread of yours. Thanks!
