From what I know there is the hazard light switch, then a cube like block under that, and that's it, nothing else needs to come out.

Have you took the screws out from behind the vents?

Glad you managed to get it out Cal

I did write in detail how to get it off but as i posted the site went down and i couldnt get back on...

So what are your plans for it now you have it out? Are you spraying it to match the car or silver like mine?

They are soldered to one of the original bulb holders. And if you have a soldering iron its not difficult at all :)

I do have a soldering iron but i can imagine that solding all those Led's and getting them to work when i want them to cum is goin to be difficult the back layout on ure pic is alot different to mine aswell im guessin mines an older model (97) may just replace old bulbs with new ones keep it simple.Ill probably change my mind l8er but o well.
