I've just began to install the lower dash grab handles and a new DSG leather gear stick boot and hit a problem with both!! haha
First of the the grab handles... I can see and get to the front two bolts but the back two which are hidden behind the ash tray are out of sight. Once the ash tray is removed I can just about feel them and have tried a 9mm socket but this seems too big and my other ones are too small - does anyone know which size socket I need for the back two bolts as I cant even see them to measure up.
Next is the DSG leather boot... following a guide, it says to pull out the side button and put some cable tie through the back to keep it pulled out. When I pull mine out, it only pulls out so far and not enough to get a cable tie round the back - I can just about wedge a bit of card underneath a little gap at the bottom of the button.
Once I did this, I then turned the old leather boot up and over the handle to reveal a little metal collar which I can just about turn and this has a notch every quarter turn. I have tried pulling the gearstick handle up and off when the metal collar is at every notch but it just wont budge. What am I doing wrong?
Any help much appreciated.
