    Default Parrot Fitted...

    Finally took the plung and fitted my new ck3100 parrot into the car..

    after the pain in the backend of getting the loom and everything sorted behind the radio... it all sorted.

    then came the mic problem. couldnt find a torx screwdriver. so was annoyed about where to put it...

    then found one, and bang removed my glovebox. only to find a fully fitte BURY kit.. so removed that and fed my mic through, up the pillar and into stealth bit.

    overall im proud of it, but the only thing is where the HUD is sitting, i cant fit the blanking panel back in so its sitting open?

    any suggestions??

    I thought about that, but figured that was a bit too high up the dash for me...

    now trying to figure out whether i risk dremelling the blanking plate to make it look better. or just leave it.

    Bring it out so the cable is underneath the silver strip under the vents. Remove the strip and vents and feed the cable out there, there's enough gaps and room for a cable to fit with everything put back in place (I used to run a second car cradle the same way when I had to use two mobiles).

    How do i go about removing the vents?

    i had a look at it earlier, but couldnt work out whether they popped out and where best to pop them from?

    and also the silver strip... id it just a case of lever off with a screwdrive or something?

    How have you attached the display to the dash?

    Why not adapt the switch blank to make the wire fit and even attach the the display to the blank too. It's pretty cheap to get a new switch blank if you come to remove the display later.

    Open the glove box and feel under the silver trim.

    You should feel a gap/edge you can get you fingers onto and pull it hard. First time I did it I thought it was going to break as you need to pull it quite hard.

    This is what i was thinking, dremelling the bottom of the blank, so the wire slips in, then have the Display attached to that instead of the dash..

    gunna give it a go i think, can always a get a replacement blank

    Open glovebox to get your hand under the silver strip and it just pulls off. Once that's off there's four torx screws and the vent assembly comes out. 20 second job.
