    Fitted a new heater panel this morning.

    Went from this:

    to this:

    Wasn't as hard as I expected - fun part it removing it out the gap, I found tilting it backwards then put the LH side backwards and across to the left it would come out RH side first. (hard to explain).

    I found connecting the control cables back up the hardest, easier the second time when I found the bulbs were duff in the replacement unit and I had to do it all again.
    Lesson learned if I ever do it again, put new pea bulbs in before reassembly !

    I played about with the controls to get the cables into place, made it easy.

    If I can do it, I am positive you could in 2mins.

    Yeah just need to get some trim panels now to make it perfect - the small one by the drivers side looks to have been scuffed from keys.
    Anyone got a set?

    There has to be a way of restoring/re texturing the cheap plastic trim bits in these cars, I've read somewhere about using a heat gun but guessing that needs to be done with a modicum of restraint or you end up with something looking like a chewed toffee
