    Side skirt removal

    Morning all. I've got to paint the rear quarter on my b6 this eve after work, as I need to take the side skirt off to do this I might as well colour code them whilst they're off.


    could someone please tell me how to get them off as it will save me abit of time tonight


    cheers

    Quite easy they are simply held by quite a lot of torx head screws, most are along the cill covered by a strip visible when the doors are open, there are some in the wheel arch also. 10min job when you know how

    Yep all sorted got them off. I'm a little concerned at how the strips that cover the top torque bolts snapped quite a bit upon taking off, hope they go back on ok...
