Re: Megane III plastic body parts removal.?

Are you referring to the unpainted lower part of the rear bumper? it would be very difficult to remove without first removing the entire rear bumper. The rear bumper comes of pretty easily. Loosen the wheel arch ling so you can get your hand in and remove the screws inside the wheel arch lining that holds the bumper in those corners. Then remove the tail lights. When you remove the tail lights you will see a push clip inserted (1 on each side) pop these out. Then remove the screws under the bumper. And after that its all just held in by tabs so just gently remove.

Regarding the side mouldings, are you referring to the side mouldings on the doors (and the small one on the rear where theres no door)? If so the moulding on the door comes off very easily. Open the door and on the tip of the door you will see a plastic circular cover, pop this out and inside you will see a torx screw. Remove this screw. Once you remove this screw, you simply slide the trim out (towards the back of the car). The small back trim needs to be pryed out and is held in by clips and if you're not careful the clips will break and you will have to buy new clips.
