    Hi Steve,

    Move both seats as far back as they will go. Remove the trim both sides, it's the "banana" shaped grey part you see in the bottom of your pic that runs along the tunnel just below the outer edges of the dash, these just unclip, pull outwards, from the seat end first, to remove, it's a bit tight for space at the seat end. Once these are removed you'll see numerous black torx head screws, some of them hold the dash, the rest hold on the lower control panel that you want to remove, you just need to remove the screws for the panel on both sides. If my memory is correct, there are two torx screws located inside the front edge of the glove box, they are sunk inside holes in the velour material. Gently squeeze the edges of the selector lever gator and pull upwards, you might also need to select N to assist lifting the panel off. Once all these screws are removed you should be ably to gently prize the LCP upwards and backwards. Hope this is of some help.

    Also, not sure if your model has the early or later comand with the larger screen, you may need to remove the cup holder, the driver side of this (side without the cup holder) has a plastic pop off cover which you need to remove this allows access to the screw, one each side, then pull out the complete cup holder, I can't remember if there are two fixing screws or just two lugs on the control panel behind the cup holder, but it won't come off before removing the cup holder on the later comand head units.

    You'll also need to remove the ashtray, a small spring loaded slider inside the ashtray, slide this to one side and the ashtray pops up and out. All of the electrical connector plugs are unique, so they only fit where they come off, but you should mange to disconnect the electrical connections and remove the retaining screws for the switches you need to replace, leaving the rest still attached.

    The later comand has the sat nav disc unit located on the left inside the boot, the earlier one you place the sat nav disc directly into the single slot at the top of the head unit. Some of the early ones have an auxiliary jack socket located inside the glove box under the dash, but I believe this was an optional extra. I'm not sure about the aux. socket on the later one. I have an 03 (D2b sytem) with the socket in the glove box, and a 55 plate with the later comand (Most system) but I haven't looked into how to attach any auxiliary equipment to this one yet, I've had it 4 years, so I might get around to that one day ;-) If you find out maybe you can let me know.
