Default Switch holders

I'm out today hopefully to get a couple of trim blanks to do my usb mod. So my question is, is it possible to remove the holder for the heated seats switches that live behind that panel? If so, how and do I have to remove all the climate unit and ashtray to do it or is it fixed in?

I want to pop it out to use as a template for cutting through the blank.

Cheers all

Pop the tab lighter door down, and you can flick the switch panel covers off with your finger

I normally use a gash five hole switch fascia, clamped face to face with a one I'm cutting holes into to mark the aperture with a scribe.

Then you simply chain drill out the hole you want and finish off with a file

Cheers Brian, but I was also hoping to remove the swith holder behind that panel as the usb one I'm putting in fits snuggly into that slot, so the panel would need to be open to that, hence the template. So is that part of the ashtray or can it be removed likebana the panel?

It's very easy to take the climate control module out, pull fascia off then 4 screws and a plug.

Give you loads more room to see what your doing.

Once the cover is removed, the switch holding frame simply pulls out

No need to remove either ashtray or climate panel
