How does the other part come apart? Mine appears to be blue and my car does not have led lights.

No worries Redman, you're welcome. I was gonna do a bonnet strut one but Dark Ice Designs already have a video tut on Youtube so couldn't see the point :roll:

So I have now completed the mod and it took me around 2 hours. Couldn't get the blue ring back in the spring loaded bars.
Using a stanley knife made ease of taking off the chrome ring and cutting the notch off. These literally took seconds to complete.

Can't believe someone even figured this could be done and modded to be honest.

Did you eventually manage to get it back together Astra ?

Got it back on eventually. I think I had it going in wrong initially so it would have never gone in.
