Turn off all electric to boiler first

Take the front outer cover off, drop down the bottom display panel area.

The plate is the rectangle shaped metal 'chunk' at the back, behing the gas valve etc.

You should be able to drain the boiler, isolate the cold mains and remove it without disturbing any gas carrying parts.

Make sure you protect any electrics from water spillage first though. And watch your fingers, there can be sharp edges on any plate HE.

If you don't want to clean it, Baxi plates are economical to buy new compared with other makes.
