Turbo pressure gauge installation question

Post by Mmcgue »

Has anyone removed the HVAC vent out of a replacement center console bezel on an earlier C4 in order to install the turbo pressure gauge? I am wondering if there is any trick to getting the vent out and the gauge installed as I am afraid of breaking a replacement bezel. I haven’t purchased the aftermarket bezel yet so I haven’t had a close look.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I've done it, but it was a while ago. I don't remember there being anything tricky at all. Do it with the bezel dismounted from the car, and you'll be able to see the backside. It will be pretty apparent how to pop out the vent.

Once the boost / vacuum line and the light socket are removed, it comes loose from the dash, flip upside down, and then as mentioned, it'll be obvious.
It's been awhile since I've done one, but it's easy enough. Good luck, and welcome to the site.
