they must be pullin the wrong one then, I agree, just pull it & out it comes!!

was same with rest of the wiring aswell, just pulls straight out!!

Mind, only one I had probs with was the lom which comes out from next to the steering-column, but I did still have the dash in when I pulled that one though!

i had to remove the bar anyway to make way for a chunkier one,i stripped the whole front end away, and started from scratch, but with the LET i had to lower the anti roll bar anyway with some custom brackets, im not paying 40 for a feckin fitting kit when i can make my own
