Does the 'eco index' work? On a turbo car you might have picked up a boost gauge.

Think the notch locates into a corresponding slot in the dash that the standard 500 doesn't have. May be a work around.

Yeah I guess. A bit pricey on eBay, might keep watching until one comes up cheap.

Simple. Disconnect the battery look under the front bottom of the front seats and disconnect the airbag leads. 2 Allen bolts at the front of the seat and two at the back. Seat then lifts away.

For the rear, undo the two bolts each side in the boot and the Allen bolt that holds the pivot part in the middle. The seat backs then lift out. Two bolts then each side in the car for the seat base. I've taken out and put new interior in in less than an hour.
