Boot lid (Cabriolet models) - removal and refitting

Removal
1 Open the boot and prop it open using a length of wood.

2 Pull out the clips securing the gas strut and remove the strut.

3 Working inside the boot, undo the nuts securing the hinge assemblies to the framework.

4 Ease the lid rearwards to disengage the studs, and lift the lid away.

5 The hinge assemblies can be removed from the lid by prising off the plastic covers and undoing the bolts securing the hinges to the lid. One is accessible from outside and one from inside.

Refitting
6 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but do not fully tighten the bolts until the lid has been lined up and closed properly.
