Thanks.

If you're talking about the one in the top of the dash that pops open, I'd say you'd need a new dash for that.

Yea thanks for the reply had a nose in a focus the other day with one and yea I thought it was just a little compartment but by the looks of it it is part of a whole system that goes right over the steering wheel.

Unfortunately yes, and they cant really be retro fitted. buying one can be cheap enough, replacing it can be a pain in the ace!

yes it can be retro fit, but it involves you cutting the dash board. If you take the speedo clocks out you can see markings that you have to take to cut the dash.

There is a full guide to it on ffoc

This is my car and that's my brother who is helping me fit it, there is a good guide that I went by to do it, it's not impossible at all it's just a bit tricky.

Crikey - isn't that hole where the passenger airbag normally goes ?!

It was on my Mk1 - where is it on newer models ? Can't see much space between top of dash, vents and glovebox.

This is the mk2 dash there is a bowl you can cut out to fit it, the airbag is next to it.
