    I installed the Gen IV with those servo's... bad news is I did it about 9 yrs ago.. and the old grey matter just doesn't remember the details. This said, I believe I followed VA's instructions to a T and installed the servos and somehow fished the thing back in to the hole. Sorry I don't have more detail. I will comment how much I like the system once installed. The controls work perfect!

    If you fished it back into the hole you must have cut, bent, or removed something! I've turned and twisted the thing every way possible and it won't go in. If you push the upper pots in by turning the unit sideways, the bottom ones hit the dash. If you put the bottom ones in the hole first there's no way the top ones will go in. The control unit is a tight fit. With the hundreds or thousands of these things that have been installed, I'm amazed how little feedback I've gotten. A guy on Madmook's FB page gave me input and said he removes the bezel and installs it from behind the dash. Another guy said he got his in but doesn't remember how either.

    I'll be waiting to install this until I get some wiring done, but I wanted to make sure it fit. Turns out I had a slight interference with my hydraulic clutch bracket and had to make a slight modification. I thought I mocked this all up....

    Dang.. I wish I could remember! Perhaps I somehow came in from under/back then installed the bezel.. that seems to make sense...
    It was a BITCH fo-sho
