Where is in the info about installing the HUD switch that is beside the steering wheel?

I'm saving up mod money and I'm torn between either HUD or the rearview mirror camera. The HUD install seems pretty intense. I'm wondering if it's really worth all the effort. Never had HUD before and some people tell me they can't live without it and others say after a while you never pay attention to it.

For those of you who do get the HUD installed into your Camaro's, please remember to add your information to my list.

I found this harness behind the radio when I was installing my HUD. Any idea what it's for?

Love it. It's worth the hassle for sure. I'd do it if were me, but I decided to get one with it already installed. Ofer's prices are the best too from what I've found. The camara is great as well but I like the HUD a little more.

Just did this, thanks for the directions, Ofer! It turned out great and I did the dash abl at the same time.

FYI, I used a T45 on the big torx bolt on the steering wheel. Not sure if it's exactly the right size since it seemed a bit loose but it worked fine.

^ The T50 hex worked perfectly for me.

I was going to do the dash kit, bought it, but I also have the abl cup holders and it turned out way too much. Ended up keeping the cup holders and not the dash.

Easiest thing would be to buy the HUD retrofit kit from Gen5 DIY

That is the easiest, but if you can get the HUD, and the switch, then buy the wiring harness from GEN5 DIY that would be just as easy.

Add me to the list

Thanks to ofer and his harness and instructions. I added my hud today. I did it all by myself. Add me to the list. This was actually fun taken apart this dash and putting all back together. Thanks to Maureen at Rodgers for the hardware. I only paid $75 for my hud used. I got the hud from Cleveland pick a part.

My wife had a Grand Prix GTP with HUD and it had a switch that would adjust the HUD picture up or down to compensate for driver seat height/driver height.

Is this an option on this HUD Ofer? Or do I need to set the height upon install and leave it at that?

The switch that come with the kit will adjust the HUD image up or down. It will also select different modes if the HUD.

There is an up and down button in this swich that does the same thing.

Yes, and as well it will dim the image too.

I replaced my old dash with a new one since my old one was scratched up... what a freakin' job that is, BTW. I used this guide as a reference on how to remove the dash - awesome guide, BTW...

Unfortunately, now I'm getting a "Service Stabilitrak" message. There are two things that occurred with the reinstallation that I'm not sure why they would affect the engine or traction control system...

- I got a new steering wheel meant for a 2SS with the inferno orange package. It's got the extra buttons for the bluetooth and volume control on the right even though my car is a 1SS and doesn't include those options, so it's hooked up to my electronics as though it does. I don't know how to remove that plate from the steering wheel and replace it with my old blank blockoff plate so if you suspect this is what's causing the code, then please post with how I can do that.

- I didn't reconnect one of the cables - it's the one that goes to the red light night time sensor on the defroster grille. I know, you have it in red font but I missed it. I completely forgot about it until the end and when I tried to reach for it, I couldn't touch it. There's no way I'd be able to access it again unless I remove everything again.

Not too sure what either of these things would have to do with the stabiltrak being messed up, so any thoughts would be appreciated. When I get home, I'm gonna check the simple things first such as a loose battery cable or things like that.
