    Hiya,minor prob, the curved piece of trim on the rear offside c post next to the door window edge is loose. I can click it back into the little white clip, but it still pops off every time i open the door Should i super glue it or remove it completly and get new clips from the dealer? my 1st BM, so little nervous of pulling it off to check in case i can't fix it!

    On the coupe's behind the courtesy/reading light there is a small torx screw to hold it in position and the clips are more for alignment.

    The light can be pryed out with a small screwdriver, or butterknife.... And the screw can easily be seen after that. Then the cpillar should just unclip with a tug...

    Well thats for the coupe anyway. But I cant imagine the saloon would be too different...
