    Default Removing a blank from the dash?

    Hello guys,

    I'm looking to remove the tc blank for the dash this weekend and wondered if there was a quick way of removing it at all?

    Any help would be great.

    Cheers,
    Glenn.

    It's only a push in / pull out blank fella. Just take the usual precautions to avoid scratches and use a trim tool or a delicately handled bit of screwdriver handling together with a cloth to prevent damage and "lever" it out. Try to use a method that involves pressure from both sides of the blanking plate at the same time

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatch

    Trim : Exclusive Plus Pack

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi Z19DTH

    Year : 57

    Mileage : 100k+

    Default

    BluTac

    Nice new sticky blutac, nice clean blank surface, pressed over as much of the blank surface area as you can, and then a sharp pull out.

    Works for me on some of them, once one is out you can get purchase on the next one.
