    Hi chaps,

    Does anyone know how to remove the PDC from this type of bumper?

    Im trying to access the one on the far right hand side.

    Not sure if i need to remove the bumper or not. Its a saloon but as you can see the PDC's arnt on the usual strip further up and i cant see a way of removing the plastic strip that these are mounted on.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Brilliant thanks!

    I got as far as uncplipping the tabs along the bottom edge put the strip wouldnt shift. Maybe its just a bit grubby and needs some extra persuasion.

    Great news

    Your pre facelift PDC repair is far easier than the facelift models, you have to remove the whole bumper just to access the PDCs
