i'd stick to what you have personally. there is nothing wrong with it and it will do the job perfectly fine. like the rest of us you have seen a better product and felt the urge to improve what you have!
Nah i am ok doing it myself.....i just cant find an access point to pop off the pod that holds the guages....thought there might be a knack to getting it off.........methinks taking out the radio etc and unclipping from underneath might be a bit of a job?
Im in Newcastle btw. : )
it is easier to remove with the radio out the way. the pod is held in by tabs that you need to unclip - i used a flat screwdriver from the top in one edge and prised it out slowly but safest way is by removing the radio.
get into the boot by dropping the back seats? lower the drivers/passenger seat low enough to get into the back or squeeze through if you aint a big fella.
get your battery checked out just in case it is faulty.
come to think of it, last time i looked i couldnt access the earth cable due to how the battery is situated so jump starting could have been a big no no. looks like keeping a spare battery is the only way to go!
