    How to remove OEM boost gauge and fit Defi gauge in....

    Firsly how the standard Oem gauge sits and looks
    I know most of u know that but have to say it dont I


    Get a flat beded screwdriver either on the side or bottom gently push it in and remove the front face or the plastic which holds the Oem Gauge in..


    There one bolt which needs to be undone to get the A pillar off either use a cross headed screw driver or a 10mm


    The either use a flat ended screw driver and slowly insert to the side of the pillar and pull gently from the top to remove the a pillar
    There are 3 clips which hold it in show in the photo dont use too much force they will just pop out



    once i have got that off there are two screws which need to come off before u take the oem gauge out u can use a cross headed screwdriver the unclip the gauge


    once thats done u need to cut away the inside off the face which holds the gauge in to let the gauge fit flush i used a small chisel




    once that is done need to T in the pipe to here a pic of how i did it as ive got a controller aswell so just cut the pipe a bit then used the T piece and split it into two again...

    Good write up! Wish I had these when I took out mine

    Btw, a tip for removing the front cover of the boost gauge.

    If you actually bent down, you can see a sort of small opening at the base of the cover that you can put a screwdriver to pry open it. Will not scratch the cover if you do it this way.
