Re: Battery conditioner fitment

I have wondered as the trim is so near the edge of the rubber boot trim, whether just releasing the rubber may give easier access to the point. I had a look at that plastic cover yesterday and I don't have the extra power point but the cover seems hard to remove. I had my hand behind it as far as I could reach and it seems that the trim is over the area and inaccessable to the plastic blanking. Possibly I need to attack it from the front.

I did pull the trim off that side to make things easier. If I recall, the 2 hanger clips are held in by a push in plug that sits across each clip, these can be prised out and the clips removed.
The trim is just clipped into position so is just carefully pulled off. I don't think there are any screws holding the trim at all.

The plastic item unclips at the top and sides and unhooks at the bottom. The back of it reveals a boxed area that I assume is for the CTek unit to fit into once the area is cut out.

I have removed the cover from the XF to test dremeling out the hole required - the parts are the same and will save me grief from SWMBO if it all goes horribly wrong.

I have the part number off the part and am going to see the dealer to see if there is a part with the aperture already there or to get another incase I make a mistake. Being a keen railway modeller I don't anticipate any problems as hack, chop and stick is quite well practised but you never know.

I am not a lot furthur on with the part but may know Monday as the item comes from Poland. The dealer thinks it's not a seperate item for sale anyway but will investigate.
