This was about half hour to do.
With the origanal eq5 cover off to keep it safe use a dremell pointed grinding stone make sure holes aren't too close so cable insert retainers don't over lap rotate dremell piece to form a decent circle check regular for size the round sanding bit is a perfect size match so once near gently insert sanding piece till its a moves in and out freely.
Use the origanal screws to tap in make sure you position them right other wise when you go to insert plugs they will over lap.
Mark plug inlets d/r so you don't mix them up.
Job done....
