What's the relevance/importance of the silver clip? Mine isn't there! Not sure if it fell off or was never there. Am searching around for it but can't find anything.

What happens if I put the trim back on without this clip? Does it matter?

Cheers!
Nothing really. The metal bit is just part of the tab that holds it down but it's not really needed as the whole thing is bolted down anyway.
Wouldn't worry a great deal about it as long as it all goes back securely

Nelly Just fitted my Ipod Connector. Not gunna lie, was an absolute EPIC!! the hardest part for me was the dash, some reason mine just did not want to unclip. eventually with some wrist bendage and small screw driver got the 3 screws out. however its gone back now with only 2 in as one of them just didnt wanna know. 2 hours took me from start to finish now works a treat, however, i'll not be taking my car apart for some time!!!!
100 for the DICE kit, best be worth it!

Mugged Off That was fun, although I don't have the lead for my stereo, it was a good exersize to see that the stereo worked albeit without the steering controls. Original stereo back in, can't wait for the lead to be released for this JVC unit in two weeks.

The trim appears to be correctly aligned, the holes are linen up and the trim sits flush with the metal bracket which it's attached to. Anyone else found this and know what's going on here? Thanks!

Same, ive just not bothered putting mine back in as they keep falling out.

I reckon some new popper buttons would probably do the trick.

ben100986 Is this the best/only way to remove the cover that sits over the top of the steering column? I know that you can replace this for the Type R style (i have a type S GT), but mine is particularly scratched at the minute and i need to get it off to polish the scratches out or do something.

Any tips or links to How to Threads much appriciated.

alancauchi Do you think that it's impossible to do even for the most visible ones?

Gentle Glovebox side panel removal

Hey Potsy - great post. It's been a while since you started it so you've probably finished dismantling your car by now huh?

I'm a total newbie at this but since I can't obviously see it written anywhere else, here goes...

I notice in this post as well as others (eg: regarding foot well lighting installation Blue Ambient footwell lighting - Civinfo Wiki), instrucitons on removing the dash panel which faces the door next to the glovebox. Most instructions talk about using a flat screw driver with the protection of a cloth to lever this off. I was having a look and thought of a simple but gentle alternative:

  1. Open the glovebox & you'll notice a hole where the latch of the glovebox lid goes in.
  2. Get something like a stick which will fit in this hole, you can keep pushing it out sideways toward the door and this will gently lift out a corner of the panel.
  3. This then lets you get your fingers into the gap to prise the rest of the panel off.
No possibility of scratching you nice car's plastic

alancauchi but at least the most visible ones, especially inside the radio and those surroundings, I will go for it and try to change them.
