    The buttons are just attached from behind with a couple screws. It MIGHT be cheaper to buy the usdm buttons if you find a euro surround with no buttons.

    That’s true the buttons are held by a few little torx screws at the back.

    I found it was hard to buy a used panel in mint condition as they scratch easily but the buttons were always in good condition. I ended up buying a brand new panel from FPUK.

    For anyone buying a new panel they can swap the vents and buy the buttons from Europe or try the escape buttons from the us.

    That’s what I was suggesting which might save some money on the buttons, especially on shipping costs.

    I ended up buying a really cheap unit with some scratching on the bottom with no buttons for super cheap. Also found just the buttons for fairly cheap, and bought a spray can of the interior paint. Never got around to actually sanding/painting, but will this summer.

    The buttons are a great resource for getting some new buttons in the event ours go bad. Good find!
    If you buy one, drive it hard. Because thrills like these don’t happen often.
