Hello Stefan ... the liners have large "christmas tree" washers/clips that hold the liners in place ... they are a pain in the behind to remove without breaking them (they tend to tear the top off if you dont use the special tool in my experience) ... the good news is they are only 27p each + VAT at your local Renault dealer ... so go and buy 2 or 3 before you start.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
Currently in Truckbusuk's garage:
Clio2 1.4RT Phase1(VF1BB0S) + Volvo XC90 SE Lux D5 Geartronic
