Hi all.
I am now 1 day away from winning a GID on ebay.:p Cant wait to get rid of the boring BID display.
So was hoping there were a "HOW TO" on replacing the BID to GID. cant find one on AON. mabye you guys know of one?

And one other thing. Does the BID and GID have the same surrounding/frame?

The GID surround is different - I have tried fitting a GID into a BID surround, and it wouldn't fit into the dash properly.

Fitting it is the easy bit, but you will need to have your old BID screen 'divorced' from your car, then the new GID programmed into it once it is installed.

Make sure the GID you are bidding on has been divorced from the donor vehicle. If it hasn't, it will be alot of hassle for you to get the display working with your vehicle. There are a couple of members on here who can decode a display that hasn't been divorced, but where you are from you may not be so lucky...?

I am sure there is a guide on how to remove the display on here. If there is one about changing the centre console trim, then that will do as that covers 99% of the work needed....

Will post a link if I find it.

** UPDATE **

The first part of the first post describes how to get the centre console trim out:-

I did this, one of my favourite mods. The surrounds are slightly different, but they're only about £12 from vauxhall.

Funny enough, LADmaching fitted and programmed mine :D
