• Removing Astra H DialsDont know if anyone has done on yet but here is a nice pic tutorial on how to remove the dialsfrom the mk5 astra.Ok well, what you need is T20 Torx and a no. 1 screwdriver and patience lol.First of all we need to turn the steering wheel (turn engine on) to get the screws behind them.Remove the wee caps and use your no. 1 screwdriverMind the other oneNow disconnect your battery! before proceding.---------------------------------------------
TIP: Use the steering wheel adjustment so you can get some movement around itNow the top of the steering assembly will now just lift offNow looking from above there are 2 screws (T20 Torx) that need to be removed.and
Now undo the screw (T20 Torx) at the very bottom of the steering wheel assembly (may need anextension)
Now just pull out the ignition capNow the bottom half should just pull away

Now pulling the bottom of the dials under and over it will come out to reveal the under side ofthe dials
so no you can see the cables attached (left hand side), there is a red clip on this. All you do is pullit out and the section holding the cables will fall away.
when pulledvwahla, it can just come out now.but now to remove the dust protector all you do is push in the 2 wee clips on the back and pull itaway
pull awayAnd for reassembly just reverse everything you did.DONT TURN ON THE IGNITION WITH PANELS REMOVED OR LOOSE! canbus willregister that an airbag has blown and you will need a tech 2 to reboot your canbus...
