Hi all,

The heated rear screen has stopped working as the wire connection to the screen has snapped off the window. I've bought some conductive glue to try and repair it but can't get access to it. I need to remove the plastic covering at the bottom of the window (the bottom when the boot is shut). All other plastic's have succumbed to my brute force technique but this last one is getting the better of me. Any ideas please?

Thanks,

Gav

Hi delmonteman

You are so close, more BF and I and the bottom plastic comes off.

The picture shows the one of the clips that just pulls out for removal and pushes in again when refitting.
