You mean you're retrofitting it to a 18 button obc? or you're putting in a different 11 button? retrofit aint so easy, swap i can do with my eyes closed, and im an idiot:D

8 button to 11 button - direct plug and play

11 button to 11 button - direct plug and play

8 button or 11 button to 18 button - requires additional wiring + harness

Just push your finger in the hole on the roof of your sunglass pouch and push the OBC out with your finger. If it is sticky, use a flat head and pry gently on either side.
