Same here... Dremel'd all four posts about 1/4-inch down so they fit behind the switch-plate rather than 'in it'. Used bigger and longer screws (hoped they wouldn't split the material, and I got lucky, they didn't). Also used a Sharpie pen to conceal the exposed white resin. In addition to the remove-&-reinstall time, I spent about 20 minutes making the modifications ....I used a demel to grind the posts down to eliminate gapping. I had to replace the factory screws with...
I'm sure your daughter could "fix" these without an issue, but unfortunately you can't use a Dremel to add rigidity to those posts.Then those customers should go back to fourth grade shop class. My nine year old daughter could fix these. Nice product!
I'm not sure if that was directed at me? If so, I don't get it. I thanked people for rolling up their sleeves to trim the pieces, and offered to help out if they weren't comfortable doing so. :shrug:I don't recall shop class being offered in my fourth grade.
Completely unrelated... I do remember being taught humility.
I have ordered the AC control panel and the small plastic cup (at the bottom of the AC surround) from Lotus 2 weeks ago, and should arrive very soon.I'm glad everyone is rolling up their sleeves and getting things done. As this was the first time that HKFever's factory has done these, it looks like there are some minor issues that need to be addressed. Aesthetically the parts are quite good.
If anyone isn't comfortable with the fettling, contact Charles (HKFever) or myself and we will make make arrangements to do the fettling for you.
It is best to wear gloves and a dust mask, the dust will make your hands itch if you don't and it isn't good to inhale the stuff.
Push on the two tabs on top of the surround and slide out towards the rear of the car.Hey guys. How do you remove the A/C surround? I am going to tackle this project this weekend. Thanks
