You don't need to trim anything, it should pop right in. What "black sliding plastic" are you talking about?

Capt. here to save the day like always...thanks Darrick [;)]

There is no trimming necessary. The pod has been designed to fit the B5 A4 perfectly.

Hey, I have to do something to make up for being an asshole the other 90% of the time! [:p]

Oh, that thing. Nope, that can stay as-is, no trimming of the Podi or the steering column.

Just make sure you've unlatched the steering column and pulled the wheel all the way out and down. This will give you more than enough room to install the gauge pod. [up]

Which gauge did you purchase? Winston has instructions for install on his website. Just choose the correct one and follow the directions.

I assume that you are talking about a boost gauge. Very straight forward install, shouldn't take more than an hour.

Connect the T to the line running from your intake to DV, the one that runs right in front of the timing belt cover.

Then there is a little grommet behind your drivers side inner fender that you can run the line through.

As for electrical, I went to autozone and picked up a fuse tap (like $7) and some 10 amp fuses and wired it in with my radio, and grounded it with all of the other body grounds behind the drivers side kick panel.

Fuse block in the side of the dash. And the pod replaces the top column cover.
