Thanks Dean.

Brett so you're after the black part with all dials and AC/demister buttons or just part of that? I have a few and can post. PM if keen.

Hey Pride, are there replaceable clips on the back of those fascias? Mine has had a rattle since I got it (presumably from the previous owner changing the stereo). Just wondering if I could just replace some clips or if I'd need another one.
Cheers.

if you're after the beige plastic control block at the back, have a look in "the pub", I remember seeing a guy there who was looking at 3d printing replacements

The grey surround has six metal clips behind it as in these pics. The black bit is mainly screwed into grey bit.
