    Does anyone have a link or know where I can find a guide on how to remove the drivers side air vent so I can fit the liquid gauge.

    pull the fins out and then get ya hand in the air vent and pull, you need to unclip the illuminated dial wire first, also take the bottom of the dash off and you will see the wire :)

    i have loads of pictures and keep meaning to do a 'how to' but just so busy lol

    hope this helps you mate, you may need to trim the unit itself to fit, i didnt as i often shoot off the line and didnt want anything moving lol

    i also unclipped the plug and left it behind the dash as when connected it sticks out about an inch and i didnt want to catch it getting in and out of the car
