    It's really easy. You're basically just unplugging a wire.

    Pirana and Natey, you guys are my frickin' heroes. That thing has bothered me since the day I bought my car. Very easy to do, my god, I'm so frickin' happy.. Togan, don't worry, if a retard like me can do it, you can. Getting the wire out of the harness was a little tough, but woo frickin' hoo.
    Anyway, I was wondering. If you disconnect the three wiring harnesses, does the gauge cluster just come out? Is there a speedo cable or anything like that?

    Here you go, a guide for the easy way to do this mod.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thanks to Pirana, Natey, and ChopstickHero for the original info.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------




    The only tool I needed was a Philips screwdriver.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    First raise the steering wheel to its highest point

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Locate and remove the three screws holding the casing together.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------




    Pull the release lever out of the way. Then pull the casing apart by pulling down on the back of the casing.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Once open locate the key-assembly, and the small two pin connector vertically plugged into the assembly.

    It has a blue wire and white wire.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Pull this connector out.

    I did this entire mod with the power on, and the chime running.
    The second I pulled this out my chime stopped.
    (I had to use my inverter to power the camera, as I couldn't find any damn batteries)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Put the casing back together.

    And the screws back in their places.

    (Black screw is towards front of car)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Done, feel free to blast your music with your doors open.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This took me less then 10 minutes to complete, including taking pictures.

    The hardest part was that the little green filter on the key-light fell out and it was hard to get to stay back in place.

    thats the other way, but then your courtesy lights don't come on when you take the key out (or turn it off... what ever)

    i did it the other way couldn't get the wire to seperate, got the shits, and just cut the wire leaving enough room to re-attach(why?? i dunno)

    worked good!!!

    yea, and as ahb11m said, if you do it from the bottom, your courtesy lights don't come on when you take the key out (or turn it off... what ever), so you better do it from the top. Took me about 10 minutes to acomplish this. All you are doing is just pulling one wire out of the harness, and no your car will not explode (smoke)

    P.S. Togan post whore (hah)

    Protege wuv!

    Hmm, I didn't realize the courtesy lights don't activate.

    Hmm, so I guess I will be going back and doing it the other way anyways.

    /Edit: Ok, well I went out and re-did it the original way.
    Took 20 minutes, including re-connecting the other connector.

    OR another way to do it is...

    1) open the driver door


    2) sit in ur car turn on the music


    3) take ur index finger


    4) push it against the rubber nipple, hold it there and listen to music!

    (lol)
