If you look at the control unit in depth then it becomes apparent that it is full of bullsh*t electronics, my telly has fewer components!!!! This is why dealers will recommend changing the unit (I wonder how many were chucked in the bin over the years?) It is testament to people's ingenuity that someone found out how to fix the thing.
Anyway I will soon be saying bye bye to my Lag and going back to a Ford so much is starting to fail on the Lag that its time to go. I still havent found where the second passenger compartment fuse panel is so if Ren want to play hide and seek its ta ta from me.
I'll still have a peep now and again to see if my past experiences are of help.
By the way gareth I don't thinkl you do need to remover the ashtray just prise out the card slot using a small driver at each end it should come out fairly easily.
