with great difficulty! fine long nose pliers, turn it 20 degrees and out it should come but its been ages, i think the black holder is part of the bulb and its that bit you turn and it comes down though the mounting hole, hope this helps
thanks matey, the defi ones are nice but im after changing the dash lighting colour so its all uniform, i've been looking at the white or blue led autoguage stepmaster stealth guages on gaugeplace, when not in use they have a gloss black face with no dial showing and have full sweep when turned on. cool.. should i replace the boost guage with a mechanical one, or would a step master with pressure sensor be accurate enough? reason i ask is the 60mm ones they do are on a pressure sensor.....
ok guys my guage is on its way (went for a stack 2bar mechanical in the end- nice and plain, plus they do a wideband lambda and loads of others that match which ill get later).....because im removing the original boost guage does that mean i can disconnect the original sensor (im assuming its the one on the drivers side inner wing), tie back the wiring and tee from the original boost sensor connection to the dump valve vacuum hose rather than the fuel pressure regulator? if so then ill remove the original sensor hopefully, tidies things up and it can go in the fast growing box of standard bits!
thanks in advance people!
ive already plumbed the guage in (teed into fpr vac) and it works fine, what i really would like to know though is can i now unplug and remove the original boost pressure guage sender or does it provide a signal for something else?
Dean - In case you havent found out yet im pretty sure its only needed for the standard boost gauge so can be dropped if you have an aftermarket.
On a side note i setup my Greddy Profec B Spec II tonight and plumbed the hose from the control unit into the standard boost gauge hose with a T-Piece (replaced the weeny hose at same time). Im guessing this will work as it provides the boost reading for the standard gauge ?
yes thats right jez - i took the plunge and disconnected the stock sensor - tidies it up a bit and doesnt hurt anything. the profec b box controller is plumbed into a three way tee behind the dash on mine - this is fed from the fpr vacuum to the mechanical boost gauge. jez installed it so must be good to go
