A quick question for those of you who have been fiddling around under the passenger seat. There is an electrical plug (perhaps a diagnostic plug) in the right front corner under the seat that appears like it should snap into a plastic clip designed to hold it. Is your plug secure or does the clip hold it quite loosely and let it rattle around? Or is this clip really designed to hold the toolkit as suggested by someone earlier in this thread? If so, where is the plug supposed to reside?

Also, FWIIW, I don't have several of the tools that are in the earlier toolkit picture. I do have exactly what the OM says I should have.

Yes, there is a diagnostic plug that is held in with a clip. Mine seems to be secure when it's in the the C-clip... doesn't rattle around. As far as using it for tools - not thinking it was intended for that. I've got most of the tools tucked in the same general area and then a subset of the tools in their own little baggie (the more used ones) on the right side tucked in the fairing back there. The manual fits in the side too. Not much room for anything else, especially with the factory alarm taking up much/all of the center area.

What does your OM say? In the US manual, there is a fairly lengthy discussion at the beginning of the maintenance section about the toolkit and what each tool is designed to do. If yours has this section, then I wouldn't think there is any doubt - you should have gotten tools.

....there's also a screw driver handle, reversible phillips/straight-blade bit, and torx wrench strapped into the bottom of the passenger seat.
