    Hi All,

    I have in my possession, an Ipod interface that I plan to install.

    Read all the instructions on mercupgrades and feel confident with everything except...

    Using pulling tools to remove the upper switch block.

    Because of its shape, it needs to slide off squarely.... and this bothers me :eek:

    Has anyone that has done the job any hints to ensure easy removal of said item?

    TA!

    open the cup holder.
    get fingers behind left hand edge and pull (quite hard first time.)
    left edge will come forward slightly.
    insert allen key or handy piece of wire from document wallet behind right hand edge and pull.

    Voila!

    Thanks Pos.k

    So... the "tool" is inserted into the right hand side, do I need to excercise caution to avoid cosmetically damaging the switch block or console trim?

    Ta!
