Hi all,
I have relocated the Phone microphone to the underneath of the rear view mirror (a better place for it in my opinion..Nearer your gob). I would like to conceal the wire more than it is into the cover that goes over the Rain sensors..
Before I start riving away at the cover can anyone confirm that its a simple push fit?
I have tentatively tried pulling it but it seems very well stuck in place..

Thank you

on the 211265 it just says to "pry off rain sensor covering with mounting wedge toward the bottom and remove"

Removing some of these things for the first time can be nerve racking, they are just so tight, plastics have come a long way this last few years, it used to self destruct with age

All done now..
It is clipped on but VERY firmly..
Got it off in the end using leverage and protecting the screen with some cork floor tile.
