Fitting and removing the on-board computer (see figure A) Fit the lower part of the Kiox into the holder (5) first and tilt it forward gently until you can feel that the on-board computer is firmly fixed in the magnetic holder.
To do this, loosen the headset screw (16) until the Kiox holder can be swivelled sideways. Put the on-board computer in the holder. Screw the locking screw (M3 thread, 6 mm long) from below into the thread provided in the on-board computer (using a longer screw may dam- age the on-board computer).
