How to remove sideskirts
« on: 20:52, Sat 22 October 2011 »
I Wonder how to remove the sideskirts and front/rear arches. I've successfully removed both bumpers without problems. The sideskirts looks like they've been bolted on without making it possible to remove without breaking then bolts
and clips.

Help :)

The skirts are held on with clips and 3 bolts along the bottom Edge, once you have removed the bolts you just lift them up an off the clips, more than likely you will need new clips when puttin them back on, arches are held on with more bolts wich need removing from inside the wheel arches.

Thanks mate. What kind of bolts is it and how do I remove them? I have previously looked at the Edge of the sills and they are flat without iex. flat or Philips head.

Btw Nice red GTT :)

It sound like you still have the original fixings in place, I would carefully remove them drilling them out or grinding then use new bolts when refitting the skirts.
Thanks a lot for comment on my 5, she is getting there :-)
