ICS removal help in Kent


I am semi compitant but this is driving me mad, i have the two angled holes and pushed a screwdriver into them and managed to release the passenger side clip, but can not get the drivers side one to go.

Rather than take a large hammer and chisel to the entire thing, is there anybody in Kent / Essex that would like to help me ...............

That's a great guide that I used to get to mine to. The trick is to remove the panel around the gearstick first.

I assume the the gearstick surround is off, also the U shaped surround that is helpd on with 4 screws.

The attached pic show the clips you are aiming for. As you can see, it is quite easy to select too small a screwdriver and have the driver tip go beteween the clips rather than connect with them and push them down. A larger sized Philips/crosshead is ideal. Do not pull on the facia it's too flimsy, use the cassette slot to help pull the unit out once released, its quite a tight fit in the hole.
