    As title please are they just clipped on ?

    I.E with a bit of man power will it just pull of ?

    Or are they bolted on ?

    Thanks

    The side skirts have the push rivet things i think theres 9 of them on the underside of the side skirt. just pull out the centre and the rivet then just pulls out. The side skirt is then just held in by plastic clips that you will need to prize off start at one end and work you way down, you will need to pull hard but dont be aggresive you will break the clips and if you dont have replacements the sideskirts wont hold up correctly. Then fitment is reversal!

    hope this helps
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
