The tech doc, really does explain whats required if you concentrate correctly.

You'll need to disect the instrument cluster plug, and add a new wire (data line) then run a thin wire to the trip computer.

The other wires are illumination wires, you can retrieve these from the plugs surrounding the 'clock' plug and also the cigarette lighter.

You also need to relocate some existing clock wires and REMOVE the white one.

I hope that clears you up.



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.
