5) Drop in new cable from the JdeMO™ assembly. This may be easier with two people; one person (with long arms) to route the cable and the other to hold the assembly

Dropping the JdeMO™ cable down towards the high voltage battery. Pictured is a 2014 car, which has the GEN1 Tesla hardware. All cars in Europe should have GEN2 Tesla hardware, which doesn’t have that aluminum box and orange cables on the side of the Tesla Onboard Vehicle Charger. They get in the way a bit.

6) Pull the JdeMO™ cable through from the bottom. The black locking mechanism needs to be closed to fit through here, or removed.

As the earlier B-Class are now outside of their warranty, do you think there will ever be a "range plus plus" hack that opens up the whole 35kwh battery? It would be for usage as infrequently as possible but would help to add on the extra 11 miles or so
A “range plus plus” (is it 1984 again?) would require a bit of effort! I’m not sure.

I assumed it was much more involved or daunting, but these photos sure do clarify what is going on a bit more. A video on Youtube would probably be ideal to show the steps involved. I have a 2014 B, on the east coast though so I'd have to do the install here locally.

Hi Jyyra,

You might want to check these tips form Goingelectric https://www.goingelectric.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=94&t=30069. Basically two improvements, isolate the Heater pipes and keep the cool air out of the Car when driving. It is all in German but there are many online translaters out there to help.
The page is a good source for many topics. e.g. the topic about how to add a trailer hitch ...

Please keep me posted concering your Ethanol heater. Would also be good to learn how you did it, and how you got it approved and added to your Car papers. I don't know the requirements in Finland but in Germany we would need to get blessing during a technical inspection of the Car.

It's of topic in this thread you might want to consider openeing a new one ...

There is enough interest... I guess :)

Enjoy your silent drive ...
