            Silly question but how do we get it on to power? Someone mentioned the rear aux. Is that straight into the socket or can we wire it direct somehow under the gear stick cover? Do we need to cut wires? Disconnect battery etc?

              Rear plug that goes into the 12v socket/cigar lighter.

                    I tapped into the Siggy lighter below the head unit. There are 2 yellow wires, the thinner of the 2 will allow dimming via the rocker nect to the head light adjuster

                      Am I right in thinking I need 2 sets to be able to do dash, front and rear doors?

                        Did you have to pull stuff out to get to the wire? Is it easy enough? Would be good to have it dimmable via the rocker rather than having to get the phone out each time.

                            As mentioned the only thing that needs to be removed is the ashtray and siggy lighter surround.

                            Ive got a load of pics on my phone if you need any help.
