Undo the two screws holding the lower panel and remove it. You may need to 
transfer any telephone wiring originally connected direct to the back to the 
replacement panel, there should be similar IDC connection points on the new 
one, then fix the new panel in its place. There will be one socket for the 
modem plus one standard BT telephone socket on the new one to replace the 
original single telephone outlet.
If there was any very old telephone wiring to the rear of the original lower 
panel it may have the old wiring colours, so make a note of the original 
connections before they are disconnected.
The replacement VDSL filter panel should cost around £15 to £20, usually 
available from CPC.Farnell.com
