Replacing Blue & Me USB

Hi All,

I need to replace the blue and me USB/aux connector as my USB has broken. Does anyone know how easy this is to replace? Do I need to remove the whole surround with the cup holders?

Thanks in advance

Re: Replacing Blue & Me USB

Piece of cake!

Insert a trim tool or or a slim screwdriver under the usb unit already fitted to the car and gently prize it out. Once you lift it you will be able to get your fingers under it and pull it out along with the cables.
The usb cabling is connected to the bottom and held securely by a plastic clip that you have to fold back to release it. You will need to push down the plastic lock tab that holds it in place. Then you can push the blue plastic retainer back that will release the connector. This bit is fiddly but once you get the idea of how it comes off its straight forward.
Fitting really is the reverse of the above.
Thanks TerrorTag thanked for this post

I've just had to do this in my MiTo and it was a 2 minute job. Sadly, the previous owner tried to do it by removing the gear stick gaiter, and broke all the clips!
