You need to undo the two bolts holding the rev counter on to the steering column and then disconnect the wire into it. Then you can unscrew the bolt holding the cover on and you will be able to take the rev counter apart. The top of the needle comes off too if you want to change the colour of that like I did. I sprayed my surround with Halfords plasticised trim paint, first grey then blue to match the outside of my R53.

No problem, one of the easier jobs I have attempted so far! The downtube covers were a lot harder to fit and the next job will be replacing all of the 5 piece dash with a nice graphite one! I think I might need all weekend for that one...

Lol, I am not a fan of all the silver plastic inside my R53 (cheap looking in my opinion) so my mission is to gradually cover all of it up.
Ive got anthracite dash rings (although my first thought was gloss or matt black!!)
Got my eye on door cards and door handles in the near future (probably from the same place as my downtubes)
