    Door cards need to come off, peel back soundproofing and work clips off carefully.

    Dash is a ***** to do, glovebox, drivers knee bolster handbrake and centre console all need to be removed and then it's cack handed to remove the push clips.

    Don't try to pry the clips off, you risk snapping the plastic pins they are pushed on to. It's easiest to use an unscrewing action and the same to replace. Mind yer fingers the clips can be sharp!
