    Default using carbon film and need to know how to remove a bit of the dashboard

    i`ve doen the steering wheel and i`m damned if i know where the hell you get a torx screwdriver from for the tiny torx screws, any ideas? i`ve had to carbon film the controls as they are, any way i`ve also down the cigarette ashtray and lighter bits, and i`ve found you can remove the big long strip on the dash that runs along under the heater blowers and screen, thing is how do remove without damaging it?

    The clips it sits on are pretty tight, the times I've removed it I generally start at one end, usually the end closest to the steering wheel, get your fingers behind the edge and pull towards you, is should pop free, support the next bit and again pull towards you, it'll get easier toward the end

    i`ve never done this before on a vectra, so hence the hesitation in wanting to break somethin,

    does anyone know any places to get the smal torx screw drivers from for the tiny torx screws that hold the steering wheel controls in the plastic

    halfords http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165572 this is the set i got one of these fits perfectly and you can use the smaller ones to dismantle the controls if needed.
