    Look on the back face of the centre console where the heater control box is - there is a metal clip in each corner - two on the top face and 2 on the bottom.

    lever these up/down and the box with the cables will come out.

    the bottom two are in the same place but upside down - no it's not hard.

    There is a wee tang on the clip - lever that up with a small screwdriver and push the nearest heater knob backwards at the same itime so it doesn't pop back bin.

    Work round all four and it comes out. It's best with two screwdrivers and do one side at a time.
