Fit a Stainless Steel 205 Instrument Bezel
* This is only applicable to the 205 *
Why do I want to fit a bezel?
It's a matter of taste, I wanted shiny things in my car!
What parts do I need and where do I get them from?
1 x bezel, I got mine from www.speedhut.com - approx £18Tools
The job took about 45 minutes... (and I am a complete novice. . . this is honestly the first time I have ever taken anything in my car apart!)
|Undo the screws holding the under part of the dash on the drivers side|
|Let the dash hang down, this will now give you room to pull the plastic surrounding the top of the steering column off it's retaining clips|
|Remove the 2 screws in the plastic shroud and the 2 from either side of the base of the shroud. Then pull the shroud down and towards you|
|Remove the 2 screws that are holding the plastic visor in place, once these are removed, you can unclip the clear visor from the instrument
To unclip the visor you will need to press down on the rear of the clip and push the visor forward. There are a number of clips at the top and bottom of the visor to undo
|Fit your nice new bezel following the manufacturers instructions and refit the visor, shroud and remaining dash bits
Refitting of visor, shroud and remaining dash is simply the reversal of removal!
