its not just a process of swapping the module to get the CC working - you need to swap a lot more!

Yes you need to remove the entire dash back to the windscreen. Look at the photos.

its a big job - not hard, just time consuming. But it is surprisingly easier than you would think. The photo's make it look worse than it really is - lol the amount we ripped off my car and it still started first pot!! :p
