Removing the Sport Chrono Stopwatch Housing 1. Slip a plastic protector between the rear of the stopwatch housing and the dash top. I made one out of a plastic water bottle ($0.05). This will protect the leather / plastic surface from scratches. 2. Slip a plastic wedge pry tool in between the layers of the protector and pry the back of the stop watch housing up. The housing is held down by 4 metal friction clips. Once the back two clips release, just rotate the housing and the...
