Interior trim panels - general information

1 The method of removal and refitting for most interior trim panels is self-explanatory.

The panels are fixed in place either by screws, which may be concealed by plastic blanking plugs in some cases, or by clips on the rear of the panel.

2 When removing a panel secured by clips, prise the panel as close as possible to each clip, using a forked tool similar to that shown (see illustration, 17.6b) or a wide-bladed screwdriver to prevent damage to the panel.

3 Refer to the relevant Sections of this Chapter for removal and refitting details of the major trim panels.
