Take the metal clip off the peg, push it in the hole so it clicks in to place then shut the flap locking the peg in the metal clip.

Any suggestions on how to get the gear shifter surround black too - the body shop said due to the wierd metally-plastic its made from it would just flake if resprayed.


And is there any way to remove the plastic steering wheel cover (horn/airbag cover) as I'm having a nightmare trying to refit the plastic V, as theres only like 3mm of play in the wires to the cruise control and audio controls.
Or if I removed the steering column covers can I unplug the other end of the cables while I refit the V?

Plug it in upside down with point of V at the top. Once both clipped in flip it over.

I can't figure out how to get the damn air vents oot? I've read everything about it... But no where states where the tools go... Does it go to the outside of the ring, inbetween the spongey dash and vent surrounds, or inbetween the vent and surround? :S maybe it's cause I'is blonde... Anyone help meh?
My door handles look the dugs nuts so far like!
