    1 there is a trick to getting the light control out, push the dial in and twist at the same time and then pull it out, same as a mk4 golf

    2 ele window buttons just pop out with a flat blade

    3 what display have you got?

    4 little splines at the back ( one on each side) then give it a pull

    1. are you talking about the courtesy light? if so read my 'how to'
    2.small flat blade driver at the bottom of the whole thing, then just pops out.
    3.if you have the 2 boards apart , whats your problem?
    4. torx bit at the rear of controls , unscrew and prise out, if you have a half canbus its a nightmare re fitting

    1. Headlight switch to 'off', push it in and turn sidelights on, the unit should just pull out.

    2. Small screwdriver and a lot of care.

    3. Unscrew boards and desolder the two little wires. You'll know the ones I mean when you look at it. The unit comes apart and you can see the SMDs.

    4. There is a torx screw on the back of each spoke, undo it and prize the plastic part that houses the buttons off. Once out, the unit will unclip.
