    Does anyone know how the dashboard comes to bits, I want to replace the current 12v socket with one or two Hella type, but cannot find how it comes apart.
    The MH is a Rapido on a sprinter 316.
    I know they usually have a bit that pulls off which reveals screws which enable you to get off the next bit and so on until you've got to the bit you want.
    I can't even find the first bit.

    Anyone know how it's done?

    I would have thought that should be able to be removed without any dismanteling but then I`m not familiar with Sprinters so I should keep my nose out probably.

    I can't believe that you'd have to recover the gas from the A/C system. It'd be far cheaper to install them elswhere as additions if that is the case.
