    Q. How difficult is it to remove the clear perspex covering the Audi B5 dials? I've bought a set of silver rings to place around the dials and thought this might be the best thing to do...?
    Cheers

    I did this mod on my old Mk4 Golf.

    You don't actually remove the perspex from the pod. You remove the speedo console and undo half a dozen screws which split the front section from the clocks.

    You then have to install the rings from the back by gently squeezing the alluminium rings and passing them through the holes in the back of the front half of the binacle. You then need some gel superglue to attach the rings permanently. Just be very careful with the glue as any spills with ruin the effect .

    The seller of the dial rings said...they click into place (no need for glue) mmm we'll have to wait and see.

    Thanks guys, as per usual you're all...diamond geezers!, said in a Del Boy accent!

    When i got mine they said they would click into place but they didn't lol. Theres not much for them to click into. Glue did the trick though.
