My very first mod in my 2012 IPL. Not as easy as the DYI video/write up... My stock clear button gave me a fight and I had to remove the lower trim panel to re-install. When I removed my clear white button I noticed I had two clear clips that the video didnt reference!? 2012 owners just wanted to give a heads up

I'm a DYI guy and have installed many aftermarket parts on my Nismo Z. Not gonna lie... This was a pain in the azz and took me over an hour

Lol, dude I feel ya. Took me a lot longer than I had anticipated as well. I had difficulty popping the button out. It felt like it wasn't going to go, and I kept thinking I was going to break it.

Yeah, it was tough at first, then I undid the clip with a screw driver and the button popped out easily. Don't know if the clip somehow made it harder to pop out but it worked with no problems once I unclipped it.

I had plenty of play in the harness. So it wasn't that holding it back...the bezel just didn't want to pop out from the dash

Oh well - the button is in and that's all that matters

Did this the other day. The hardest thing to do is reconnect the wiring back into the button housing; ripped up my fingers doing so because the gap you must fit your fingers into is very small. It helps to pull back the trim piece under the steering wheel during removal; it will allow you to get the screwdriver up there as the OP described. All in all a good looking mod; you've seen the pics, but might take more than a few minutes.

Finally got around to doing this. Damn fingers! Popped out the right side of the lower bezel as well and found that hooking the wire back up was the hardest part due to no give in the wiring. Finally got it and the dieseldoug modded gtr button looks great!

Took me about 30 mins, with getting the wiring hooked back up. Just gotta keep playing with it til I finds the whole. Then Find some leverage and push it in. Kinda like being a virgin all over again. Ha!

Anyway, I do like it a lot especially with my 2009 gage instrumentation tents compared with my previous 2010 G. The red in the 2009 accents the GT-R button IMO. I have black paint w/wheat interior and the button looks great.

finally got it in. i have a 2012 too and that top left clear clip was a pain to get out!

took me about an hour to take out the button, swap the guts, and put it back in. surprisingly the easiest/fastest part for me was getting the button back on the harness.
