    Looks pretty straightforward to me, only a max of 10 wires to connect.

    They all seem to be fully labelled with the location they should be connected to, what exactly are you having trouble with?

    I dont have access to Elsawin at the moment as my PC runs Vista but I'm sure someone can check. Im not 100% sure for a B5 but could be under the dash or inside the drivers door.

    Got something similar from Ebay. The central locking unit on mine is in the drivers side of the boot, at the back near the taillight, You lift up carpet, and its attached with a strap. Check and double check you have the right wires before cutting, attach as instructions says and you should be good. Mine took about 40mins to do.
    Best of luck.

    I guess that depends on your level of confidence with wiring! As Cviji says above it only took 40 minutes to do. I'd have a bash for sure - gives you a great sense of achievment when you get it working, and you save money too:icon_thumright:

    not that i can see, i pulled the carpet up and there was a foam covered thingy with wires going to it but no writing on it

    ive uncovered a load of dodgy wiring going to the rear lights though, must have had a sort and burnt out by the looks of it, looms melted in places and theres screw connectors on loads of it

    Did you get this from right click.co.uk? I've just fitted mine to a 96 avant.

    Let me know and I'll let you know how I did it.
