How to get to the buttons beside seat heaters

I have rear shades so it has the section where the seat heaters are broken up into little buttons (that dont depress). Im wondering if I could turn them into something useful. Maybe the mute button for my BEL Sti? How do you get that panel off?

Not on mine....its the button for the rear shades smack in the middle. There is an empty notch/button to the left and right of that button.

If it's like the E46, that whole button assembly is one integrated unit and you must get different units for the different button configurations. Also, they operate through circuitry, so they're not like typical on/off buttons. you'd have to hack the circuitry or connect a button to a relay.

You could also do the rear fog switch install and use the extra button as Jinxter describes here (post #20): http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...=131151&page=2.

if you don't get any options that require a button, that whole panel will be blank. but if you get anyone of the options, you might get stuck with the buttons that look like they are there but don't do anything. bummer.....
