Hi all,

I want to hard wire the power connector for my PDA (which I use as a GPS system), the cable isn't too long, what is best place to tap this off ?

I was thinking of getting to the back of the cigerrette lighter and tapping it off there.

Also can someone advise how to remove the centre console on an S80 ?

Can anyone also advise of the speaker sizes in the S80's ?

Thanks

OK, I have found some instructions, these are as follows :-

Release the gear stick surround (up and back a bit); remove the two screws holding the switch panel, then pull the panel forward. Now the tricky bit. At the same time, pull the lower part of the heater control panel forward and down. This will require some force, there are 2 or 3 spring catches that hold it at the top (on a metal rail below the radio and cubby hole panels (you'll see when it's out). Then , you'll see a couple of bolts holding the radio unit in, undo and pull radio forward. Tips - disconnect battery before undoing any cables (you can trigger an SRS alert which then requires a dealer VADIS visit to reset), and when replacing radio ensure cables are not caught behind it.
