    Hey guys this is styling related so i placed it here. sorry if in wrong place. i was looking at the chrome rings and what not for the E46 Dials and even spotted come carbon fibre type sticker to place over the standard grey/black surround... which gave me an idea..... Ive got some di noc lying around and was gunna do it myself however i know how to remove the clocks and i know there are about 5 screws on the back which hold the instruments to the cluster. But i can't remember there being any clips screws which removed the front glass so how do i access this part below....



    the bit i need is red as you can tell i'm awesome using photoshop

    thanks for the video but its not what i am after, if you look at 4.30 he has the dials out which i have done but i need to remove the facia from the perspex front cover to fit the carbon fibre surrounds (sorry for my poor description) not rings like in the original post. Thanks though

    I couldn't figure how to remove the facia from the perspex either - to fit my chrome rings i just inserted them in at an angle from behind the fascia then clipped them in place through the holes (if you get what I mean???)

    That wouldn't help you stick carbon fibre to the fascia though - just allows you to do the rings

    This isn't my car, it's how my car see's itself in it's own head

    yeah gave up in the end and just did my needles red, just thought it was a waste leaving dome di noc lying around... will find another use for it though

    makes me wonder now how people DO fit carbon surrounds

    The carbon surrounds are a flexible silicone rubber, which you poke in through the back
