    Red face Replacing speedo rings??

    Was just wondering if anybody has tried to remove the original Speedo rings that some Astras have & replacing them with the Irmscher chrome 1s?

    Do the originals come of or are they moulded to the Speedo backing? I know most Astras don’t have any Speedo rings in the first place but conveniently mine do!

    The 'silver' rings fitted as standard to the coupe turbo are just melted on in a few places.

    I just used a hot air gun and they came off really easy
