Detach main fascia Fiat Brava

You need:
- allen key number 3.0
- a tool shown in the haynes manual to detach the radio unit (or a knife as i used)
- a little bit of patience.

Here goes:
- remove the fan speed selector button, the left and the right fake buttons from the button unit (the one that contains the demist button, fog lights and fog lamp).

- put the knife underneath the buttons unit (the one with the demist button...) in the right side and pull it up, and with the other hand pull towards you (it should slide out pretty easy) then take out the two connectors (they have an "ear" on the bottom of them).

-if you want to change the lights from the buttons, you can take the buttons out by inserting an inline screwdriver on the top and pull up, and on the bottom (there are 2 plastics on top and 2 on bottom the ones in red circles), then to change the lights they go like this: red arrow on/off bulb, and blue arrow, sign back light bulb.

-after you take out the radio unit, the buttons unit, and the screws pull the fascia towards you until it pops out. You will have to disconnect another cable from the back of the fascia (the one from the buttons of the recirculation and air conditioning), and the cable that goes to the hazard lights button.
