Removing front vents - frustrated and given up..

Post by Beancounter1980 » Wed Aug 04, 2010 2:28 pm

I have had the Aux cable lying around for two months in the garage. Yesterday i planned to install the thing.

Got my long screwdriver and credit card out. Went at it, but after 30 minutes I gave up.

I located the metal catches, but it seems impossible to move them down (or up?) in order to get it out.. :(

More difficult the 1st time,but not too bad.
PULL CATCH/TAB DOWN AND KEEP KEEPING IT PRESSED DOWN,WHILST GETTING CREDIT CARD IN AT THAT SIDE,THEN GENTLY LEVER IT OUT WITH THE CR/CARD(NOT SCREWDRIVER), REPEAT ON OPPOSITE SIDE,AND HEY PRESTO :thumbsup:

Hope u have better luck 2nd go/dont give up though. :D

Piece of cake, take 2 weeks of work and use the F word as a verb, adjective, adverb, noun alongside the C word. Sorted!
