Hey Guys ! I was wondering if anyone has started to strip down their Adam and see whats hiding under all that plastic. My end goal is to find the ground wire connecting the stereo to the parking break. If anyone has advice for safely removing the pieces, please let me know. If nobody has done this yet, let me know and I can try to make a step by step guide on removing interior panels!

I'd be interested to know how difficult it is? I'm thinking of changing my interior panels to white if it's not a major job?

All in dash entertainment systems are wired to prevent you from watching videos while the car is in motion. The trick is to attach the ground wire to a permanent ground vs the parking break. Unfortunately I do not know what's under the Adams dash until I start to take everything apart.

Hi,

Due to the fact that modern cars run a canbus wiring system, I wouldn't go touching or modding any wiring unless you know what you are doing....

The easiest way to bridge out handbrake light, is to simply de adjust the hand brake cable a couple of turns and run with the handbrake on one click.... it will not affect the brake performance

Remember its a road traffic offence to have a tv in the front that works whilst in motion... at least this way its not been modded to do so

Joolz, have you ever been a copper?? just the way you said "Road Traffic Offence" as opposed to just saying against the law

This is why i didnt bother with the intellilnk system, as my smartphone wasn't listed compatible
and i already have a sat nav.
I've heard that changing the plastic panels isn't too difficult.
