Strut Tower Brace

Do you guys know if strut tower braces are different from automatic trans to manual trans. ? My wife bought me an Arospeed brace for christmas. Problem is it looks like I would have to relocate some wiring to make it fit. The brace looks okay, the other side fit fine, but I think I am going to break something if I just jam it in there. I have a sport shift. Any answers would be great, thanks.

No, it should fit regardless of transmission.

Which area are you having troubl? With my brace I had to bend down the little bracket that holds the green wire connector (the wire that runs over the cruise control actuator) Then I just tucked the green wire under the actuator.

It is hanging up near the cruise control unit. I saw a write up on ntpog.org and the guy said he removed the plate that hold all of the wiring and zip tied it down to get it to work. Thanks for the input, I will try to put it on tomorrow.

I removed the plate installed the strut tower brace, removed the harness from the plate, spun the plate 180 degrees, pushed the harness back on and reinstalled the plate. it fits like a dream.

looking into the engine bay on the left hand side, there is a bracket that holds a wiring harness in the way of the strut tower connection directly behind where the brace bolts up. I just had to do some modifications to get her to fit. sorry for the unclear post.

I installed the brace last night. I unbolted that plate and hit it towards the passenger side with a hammer to get the base in place, after that it was easy. Thanks for the suggestions.
