    they are a doddle, lower the steering wheel and pull out. Take off siler dash trim both sides of the wheel, Pull the trim at the bottom of the clocks. Two torx screws at the bottom of clocks, lower clocks and pull out remembering to undo the plug.

    Think there is a how2 on the site.

    It really is VERY easy mate BUT if you don't feel happy doing it then get somebody else to do it.

    I probably wudn`t attempt it,do you think it is a worth while mod,considering that if a problem crops up it wont show up on the clocks.

    hi m8 you will loose some functions
    i lost the seat belt warning and next service light/due.

    very easy to fit m8
    pull of the strips over the light switch and the one above the glove box.
    pull steering wheel towards you and down as far as it will go.
    ease out the cover thats at the bottom of the clocks and pull towards you.
    undo the 2 torx screws at the bottom of the clocks.
    pull clocks out untill it free and face clocks down.
    undo the plug on back
    it has a black lever on it pull it down (you need to hold down a plastic lug that holds the lever in position first)
    remove clocks and replace.
    10mins at the most m8
