will the board "stick out" over the back or should it be flush?

First the button.. then the card holder.. then the card.. then the light guide.. then the display card.

I'm back.. So what part were you actually replacing? What have you done so far?

Are you able to tell me which bit goes at the front? the bit with 2 lots of fine wires or the side with the thicker wires?/and should the pack be flat or standing in its sdide?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
As you are looking at the rear of the fascia panel with the power switch to the left, the cardholder in the middle and the door lock to the right; with the bulge of the cardholder towards you, the two groups of heavier wires to the bottom (blue to the left and multi coloured to the right. Locate the cardholder into place then push towards the fascia panel until it clicks into place.
