Removing Trim

7 posts in this topic

So whilst waiting for my carbon wrap to be delivered thaught id do a trial run of removing the trim now the trim around the stereo came off nicely and im geussing the front and rear demisters are only held in with 2 torx screws but how would i remove the garage door and then the trim around the gearstick to the armwrest.

The gearstick trim simply pops up , use a flat screw driver (small) cover it in a duster and then get inbetween the plastic silver trim and once you have space use your fingers to pull it up , you may be able to get the the secureing screws for the garage door , if not then you have to remover the center console.

if you look at my guide for the Cup Holder LED's it will show you how

Two screws hold in a retaining plate at the bottom of the garage door , i can't remember if you can get to them just by lifting the gear stick gater surround or not. If not then you may have to lift out the Center top section of the center console.

which is included in the cup holder guide

Very true , i'm the same on the Mk3 , i just have to see how it comes apart and there's always the chance of pulling too hard at the trim lol
