    Default Mounting TPMS monitor in 2020 Fortuner?

    I have bought a "Tyre Pressure Monitoring system with internal Tyre Valve Sensors" from "The4x4Store" as in the attached picture for my 2020 Fortuner 2.4. I would like to mount the rectangular display in one of the slots/sockets below the radio next to the USB plug. What is the best way to remove the plastic cover that fits over the slot/socket? Is there an easy way to remove the panel so that I can connect the display to a 12 V source?

    I would really appreciate any help, advice, tips, etc. from somebody that have done this before.

    Regards
    Ockert

    It cannot be much different than for the Prado and to not damage the blank, you must push it out from behind if the blanks are next to the steering column.

    Thanks for the reply. The problem is that one cannot get in from behind them in the center control below the radio.

    Ockert the only way to get access to that “blanks” is to remove the center trimmings. All do clip on and off. First time you do it it feels as if you breaking the stuff! Remove the side trims by pulling at the bottom. Then remove the radio trim and then you can dismantel the center parts. Very easy to reach the back of the blanks to pop them out.
    I have mounted mine there.



    Good luck.

    The side trims hook behind the vent trim at the top. First have to pull out vent trim. (I cut the hooks off the side trims eventually - saved a step the next time)

    See: https://youtu.be/cGDdnK0H2xM?t=40 only the first minute. By that stage you can already get behind those buttons, but that section also unclips in similar fashion
