Re: Megane II rear bumper trim removal

Nice job - shows the rewards of good, solid prep work.

If you can feel the bottom lugs, I'd try to push one out (one on a corner), as this may allow access from the outside to open it up further. If you are reluctant to use a screwdriver, then anything plastic can be used to help you apply force from both sides.

Just be gentle and smooth with the force you apply, if more than one clip is broken, you'll need to bond it back into place.

Plastic clips are really fun - as you'll have no doubt gathered!



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
