fascia removal was created by Mole
I would like to mount some switches in the little cubby hole under the stereo but to run the wire I will have to remove the fascia. Iv found 2 screws on the underside is it as easy as taking them out or is there more to it I thought I'd ask as I'm a bit hand fisted when it come to tiny little plastic clips.

The switches in the the pic are mocked up a proper plate has been made

Just thinking out loud will the switches get flicked by your hand when your changing gears?

When all screws removed it just pulls out
Be very careful the wire will be attached to fag lighter socket and very short
this was my effort and my hand doesn't catch any of it ;)

Yes,

get the Ashtray out, look into the aperture and up - you will see two screws

Its rather poor but there is a video here that starts with the undoing of the aforementioned screws...

I discovered this when I removed a phone charger from the fag-lighter socket and the whole dashboard pulled out because the screws hadn't been fitted!



IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS

Radio,cb,land metre light,rear work lights,2low (no longer needed manual hubs now)
and three spares all have their own fuses
2 sockets switched power and other constant live
and the big red key isolates the whole switch panel
