the only way to tell is to install them and if the readings show on your infotainment, then you know it works.

LOL I didn't even look where they were pointing I just though you were asking where he got it from.

But yeah I'm confused now that I do look at it. I think it's pretty clear it's 2019 but both "dials" are only up to 12 so one can't be the day, can it? Because then it would have to be out of 31. So yeah I dunno what it is now, lol. Maybe booblehead can explain. I would say it's more September 2019 but that's only if the right dial is the month...and then I don't know what the right dial would be as I would think that's July. Also usually date codes on things are given as the week (out of 52) and the year, though sometimes the exact date is spelled out as well. Here none of the number strings look like a date so I don't think it's in there, and then all we're left with is the dials, lol.

I'm sure googling this might come up with how to read these correctly but I'm just gonna be content to say it's from 2019 and therefore none too old :lol:
