    Removing the muck guards near the front wheels

    Hi,

    Somehow one of the plastic guards underneath has been damaged and is broken. I've got a new guard but can't work out how to remove the "screws" that it holds it in place.

    It's not a torx or allen key and levering with a screwdriver doesn't work. Does anyone now? The pictures I've taken are rubbish but I'll try again later.

    Thanks

    Never looked at the fixings on the B7 but if it's like any other VAG car they will have a small dowel you need to punch out of the centre before the fixing can be removed.

    Like this.

    Thanks, the split end looks like the top side of what I can see. How do you punch it out?
    I'm usually quite good with trim clips but this has me foxed!


    Below is what it looks side from below. It looks like a cap but isn't.

    The round bit levers out of the slightly larger round bit, probably pence, so smash one off to see how it works then buy a new one.
