    Talking How to remove and dismantle a FG ICC unit.

    FG ICC removal and dis-assembly.

    Part1

    Firstly disconnect the battery, shouldn’t have to post a pic on that one
    Next remove the tissue box as shown in the pic below, grab it at the bottom and pull towards you. You will head a click and it will come out.
    pic1
    Remove the top cover. Place a screwdriver or hard plastic at the curve near the front of the cover. Leaver the screwdriver down to release the clip from its mount (do this on both sides). Then lift the cover up and towards you at the same time to clear the mount closest to you.
    pic2
    Remove the top connector clips. Big one is for the ICC the smaller on the right is the blue tooth module connector
    pic3
    Remove the two Philips head screws X2(shown by the yellow arrows)
    pic4
    Remove the small grey connector at the bottom of the unit (its similar to the others with a little push tab that needs to be pressed in order for It to release).
    pic5
    Next remove the X4 8mm screws that mount the ICC to the dash frame. (shown by the 4 arrows in the pic below) two at the side and two at the rear.
    pic6
    Place on hand on the top of the ICC and one below as shown in the next two pics. You will feel a lip at the bottom of the ICC this will help in getting a grip to remove the unit.
    pic7
    pic8
    Pull the ICC towards you It will be firm. You will hear and feel a click when the unit releases (this is just the back harness connector releasing. You will see this in pic 10
    pic9
    pic10
    Now to dismantle.
    Remove the X8 Philips head screw on the ICC mounting plate (one plate each side with X4 screws in each as noted in pic below
    pic11
    Remove the plates and screws and set aside
    pic12
    Now remove the display unit screws X4 (Philips head 2 each side).
    pic 13
    Pull the screen away from the fascia
    pic14
    Remove the small harness connector these pull out easy enough
    pic15
    Remove harness from the harness holder on the side of the vent assembly
    pic16
    Now remove the vent assembly unit X3 Philips head screws (two top corner left and right one in middle at the bottom).
    pic17
    And the vent unit just set aside
    pic18
    Now remove the main harness connector plugged into the circuit board.
    pic19
    pic20
    Remove the X4 Philips head screws mounting the CD unit to the fascia (as noted by the arrows in the below pic, two on one side and two on the other).
    pic21
    Set the cd unit, and the display unit aside with the harness no need to disassemble these any further
    pic22
    Now here is the fascia on its own with the circuit boards, buttons etc.
    pic23
    And the reverse side.
    pic24
    Now push on the two tabs as shown in the pic below
    pic25
    Then the next two as shown below, this will separate the top and the bottom of the fascia.
    pic26
    Top fascia
    Remove the X4 Philips head screws. They are numbered 1 – 4 on the board. Remove them in the reverse sequence.
    pic27
    Remove the circuit board gently as shown below then set aside.
    pic28
    Now turn the top section of the fascia over and the buttons will fall out set them aside
    pic29
    And the bare fascia
    pic30

    Part2

    Bottom fascia
    Remove the x17 Philips head screws numbered in that order (note there is also two black screws at the bottom of the boards labelled 3 and 4 remove these as well).
    pic31
    Now push the tow upper circuit board holder clips and at the same time gently pull the circuit board towards you separating it from the fascia.
    pic32
    Now do the same with the lower board. Index finger and thumb as shown (press clip with thumb while lifting the edge of the circuit board with your index finger).
    pic33
    pic34
    Now the board will easily remove from the ICC lower half. Set this aside.
    pic36
    Slowly remove the buttons piece by piece and set down on a flat surface (easier to place the buttons as they came out of the fascia for the reassembly of the unit later).
    pic37
    pic38
    pic39
    Its should start to look like this
    pic40
    Remove the chrome volume garnish out with your finger as shown in the next pic.
    pic41
    For the command center piece, squeeze the two clips on each side together as shown with some needle nosed pliers (as in pic 43 below).
    pic42
    pic43
    Then turn over and pull out.
    pic44
    For the temp and fan buttons place a finger as shown below
    pic45
    While finger is still in place, wedge a small flat blade screwdriver as shown and give a gentle twist and push the screwdriver at the same time (do this at both arrows). This will release the button from its rocker mount.
    pic46
    Then remove
    pic47
    Nearly done, now we need to remove the cd slot
    pic48
    Turnover and place a small flat blade screwdriver as shown and twist gently then apply pressure with thumb
    pic49
    pic50
    Turn the fascia over and remove the cd slot.
    pic51
    There you have it one gutted FG ICC unit, ready to paint, change, or do as you please.
    pic52
    Here are all the parts laid out.
    pic53
    Reassembly is just a reversal of the procedure. The toggle buttons will clip back into place and the other just drop into their slots. Pre check the feel of the buttons when at the stage of having the circuit boards screwed back in (better to check then rather than later), if they feel all the same when pressed all should be well.
    Here is the unit polished and reassembled again.
    pic54
    Back in the console
    pic55
    And the ignition on showing no problems
    pic56
    And you have survived another of Keith’s how too’s

    manual states dont turn upside down.

    think its because of the cd player.

    dont super glue the plug.

    if it dont work its probable stuffed.

    can you put a link in or do a heater door repair.as the picts look good.

    lol yeah, funny thing is I have had my ICC upside down, sideways etc still with a cd in it and what do you know still works (in fact CD was still in this time when I did the how to with no issues).Might be covering their own ass I think. Even had the screen and the electronics every which way.
    Mine is only a single Cd so maybe it applies only to the inbuilt 6 stacker CD units.

    Congrats, that's very comprehensive. Well done - very fiddly/time consuming just to polish though! I thought you were replacing it, that's some serious work just for a polish.

    Thanks for posting.

    Thanks docjames, surprisingly you can dismantle these little buggers reasonably quickly. Basically killed two birds with one stone, as mentioned needed to well basically lightly sand and polish the unit from a respray some weeks ago. Also another member on here asked how do you get the Fascia of so thought what the hell, had plenty of time to do the job.
    Hope others can use the how to if they need to change the fascia.

    Hey guys, to save me from removing the whole unit to find out - could anybody tell me where the video input is on the FG ICC? I know that it is above the tissue box holder on the BA/BF.
    Thanks,
    Anthony
