I think I am going to get some of these, but I am wondering how easy or difficult they are to remove them once fitted. Do they come off easier than the original ones? I am asking because I will probably need to remove them at a later date, after I have fitted them for the first time.

 

Cheers.

 

Phil.

A couple of flat blade screwdrivers on opposite sides from each other and they pop off reasonably easily.

You're best off removing the radio fascia first though to save scoring or cracking it.

That's great, it doesn't sound too difficult.

Don't think so as your knobs overlap the back plate
If you can measure the actual diameter of the holes your knobs go into i'll confirm or deny for you later.
