    Very helpful. Is this from the FSM? Do you have the rest of it and does it cover the new alloytech?

    :D

    Hi Exec24

    You obviously have something many of us want - a genuine VY shop manual.

    My main interest is the factory wiring diagrams - those I have from the Ellery's manual aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

    Is there any chance you can attach some of those? In particular, I am after Calais console and dash wiring plans and the reversing sensor setup.

    Alternately, how did you come by your FSM?

    Regards

    pj

    I tried removing the top console yesterday and had it all prised out but there was something holding it in just in front of the shifter even though I'm sure there are no screws apart from the one right at the front by the front compartment. I had removed the rubber compartment but there was no way the console was going to lift out. I didn't want to put too much pressure on it incase it split. Are there any tips on how to get it out??

    drop the fuse cover under the steering column (it's only held by clips along the top, just pull it open). Remove the 3 screws as shown in post #13 and bob's your uncle :thumbsup:
