    Door Blade removal....

    ....I know how to do it but Ive undone the screw and tried to slide them off (I have a damaged one that needs repainting) has anyone got any tips on getting them off all the gunk and **** over the years has made mine hard to remove.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Just a firm pull really, it's been a while since I've taken mine off but I'm sure there's only the one screw.

    I just took mine off at the weekend, just unscrew the 2 x screws at each end and give them a tug. They should slide off real easy. If they dont then maybe give them a light tap using a cloth and the palm of your hand along the length

    As above, just remember to tap the blade towards the rear of the car. I had one that was tight the rest were dead easy to pull off.

    Did mine on the avant recently and there are definitely 2 screws per blade. Still had to give them one hell of a tug once screws were out.

    2nd screw is tucked in right at the hinge end of the door.

    Can also confirm that there are two screws, and yes, give it a good whack with the palm of your hand towards the back of the car. Am looking at fitting bigger ones, but wanted to ensure I could get the current ones off first.

    Apologies for the confusion, if the sticky thread only mentions one screw per blade I'll correct it tomorrow, my mistake.
