In theory, it looks simple looking at the parts diagram, but I don't know about any specifics in relation to the wiring of it, or if additional wiring is required if the inverter is fitted.

The parts diagram shows the inverter as being a non-exchangeable part (#61), but comes as part of assembly #54. The second diagram shows what appears to be the 230v plug when opened, but where do the 12v sockets (#10, #11 & #12) go?

If it's as simple as just replacing #61, then the part number for the UK spec one is 4H0864051H. There is also a 3-digit code for your interior colour. If the car has the extended centre console, the part number is different!

Price seems to be over 300, but price data isn't up to date. If buying online, make sure the inverter is included in the assembly, as a few that I looked up didn't appear to include the inverter, going by the photos.
