    Hi

    Does anyone know how to remove the rear side panel where the rear speakers are. Apparently its just one big clip that holds it all in place, and it easily breaks as well. But as hard as I try to pull it off it still won't come off.

    Any ideas anyone ?

    It's not just one big clip, there are acutally a whole load of clips. The trick is pull firmly, but gently, i.e. apply a steady force, don't "snatch" as that will break the clips / damage the trim.

    You may be able to get hold of a plastic "fork" tool to leaver the clips out from a dealer or car-audio outfit.
