One of the contact springs in my immobilizer socket is looking a bit flat so thinking of changing it as a precaution. Before i ring h and p to order one, can anyone give any idea of how easy this is to change ? Mine is located right up under the clock and appears to go through the bulk head into that awkward to reach place under the windscreen where the radio booster is. Looks a nightmare to reach from the back and i don't like to start to pull on it from the front because it looks like it's got a threaded socket.

Anyone swapped one ?

Got the answer of all places from the pcgb forum .... seems the socket pulls out from the front and a new one can be soldered in. Spoke to h and a to confirm and have ordered a socket (they call it a receptical) and a new immobiliser fob for around fifty quid each.
