Default Couple of questions about removing trim/sat nav


got a Mini Cooper S JCW edition, 2004 model, with the Dual Gauges, Climate control and Sat Nav in the middle where the speedo usually goes

I have completed the Dual Gauge LED conversion YAY!!

Took a little while, and I practiced on the Roof clock and Sunroof LEDs first less expensive to replace lol

I will be doing a "HOW TO DO IT" series soon, just need to find the time to write it as I think there needs to be as much detail as possible, here though is a finished photo... you will notice I increased the lighting to the REDLINE markers, this was done with the internal light separator being slightly modified, no extra LEDs are needed

Soooo..... what do I need to know????

Well, I cant leave it like this lol

I need to complete the Climate Control and the SatNav lighting, plus the switch that dims the clocks at night (Yes btw, these are dimmable unlike my old celica!)

So, is it possible to access the SatNav WITHOUT removing the dash? Do the panels just pop off underneath the sat nav part or are the screwed on and the dash has to come off first??

Also has anyone removed the Climate Control assembly before?? Just wondering how easy it will be to remove it... once removed I am HOPING it will be fairly simple to undo, resolder the LEDs and replace, but Im reluctant to do anything without getting some knowledge from you guys!!

Any help on this one appreciated, thank you
