FK8 Mugen Start Button Install

Had some free time this afternoon and it was warm enough that I decided to head into the garage to finally install the Mugen start button Diana and the guys got me for my Birthday.

It helps me relieve the itch to drive the car or whatever if I do installs so I have something more to look forward to when I can finally drive it… A pretty straightforward install – took 10 minutes all in all in-between pics. A small detail, but a nice and welcome addition to the interior for sure… Also one of the few Mugen pieces for the FK8 I can afford LOL.

Stock button… In reality, nothing is really wrong with it and you don’t even think to change it and then Mugen comes through and decides to slap their logo on it and now you HAVE to change it…

I tried the route of just removing the bottom panel but there was no way I was squeezing my hands/fingers in there to press the notch and release the button so I just decided to do it the full way to save my fingers… The side trims need to come off and then the climate controls just pop out.

Once that’s out, there are two philips screws underneath that hold the radio. Take those off and pull the head unit off and voila. Removing them just allow you to put your finger in on the right side to squeeze the tab and remove the button…

Literally the same button with a Mugen logo. Oh well, still bad ass lol

Stock button popped out with minimal effort…

Pic of the notch/tab you have to press. (both sides)

The Mugen button plugged in and ready to pop back.

And a few shots of it glowing red… Super nice.

It doesn’t even change the colour or anything LOL

Done!
