    Boost Guage Lighting

    Anyone got any tips on easy connections for a boost guage lighting. I need an earth, perminant live and a feed from the dash lights. I know it's only 3 wires but I'd like to be able to connect it without taking half the dash apart. Was thinking of using the illumination from the cigarette lighted as a light feed since it works with the dimmer but can't see an easy way to get at it. Any advice greatly received.

    Guage is on top of the dash (rhs), didn't realise the ashtray and lighter would come away by themselves with one screw. Will have a look at it tomorrow. Thanks

    yer roughly in the middle under ash tray is a torx screw and then it clips up into the heater part might be a bit tough getting out as prob not been out b4 so might mean pulling it towards you but it wont break any probs let me know il take some pics 4 ya m8 you will have earth there ( brown) ignition live (black) and a grey with a green trace (lights) and yes it will dim wiv the dash lights

    gsi-jay, you say just pull down hard on the ashtray assembly? I tried this ages ago and it would not budge!
    Is this deffo how to remove it cos if it is I will go out and have another tug at it now.
