Size:  447.7 KBWas a bit of a pain. I took the entire side off with the buttons so I could do it under better lighting. If you look at the red button you can see it clips into those two holes on the side of the button so thats where I pushed the black button from the back side. The whole thing shot out but the button came out of the frame when both shot out. I thought I broke it but its all made to come out. Then you push the frame back in and put the red button in from the top and it all clicks back together.

One thing is if you take the panel off be careful there are two little white T shaped inserts that flew out and I had no idea what it was from at first. They go in the holes of the up/down arrows on the back side of the button to make the button work. So make sure you dont lose those.

Had a quick look at the Start/Stop button but couldn't see how to remove it. Popped the housing that it sits in (with the headlight switch, its RHD) but couldn't see how to get it off without removing the entire button assembly. Quickly put it all back together lest I break something. What did I miss?

Brgds,
Matt

you have to pull out the entire assembly. then you'll see that the start/stop button assembly can be removed. once you remove it you simply pry off the black start/stop cap, snap the red one in place the put everything back together in reverse order.

Many thanks. I thought that may have been the case but didnt want to start pulling it apart until I was certain.
