  • Help with door/foot scuff plate

    Hi all, just need to take the plate at the bottom of second row door, I hope that is what it is called. Do I need a specialist tool or trick for that or is that just some force to remove the panel from its clips? More in the picture, it is the panel pointed by the arrow. Thanks in advance. Photo copied from my searching to see if there was a image showing how it is done?

    Gentle prising upwards with fingertips will lift this trim. The first time it pops off in your hands is the worst, its (probably) not broken but will feel like it!
    Cheers

      Thanks, I could not find much information on any retaining clips or anything holding it in place on Utube etc. So from broken you mean it will sound like the usual plastic cracking but it should be fine. Will give it a go. Many thanks.

          Done, exactly as you mentioned looks and sounds like it is broken but all went well. Many thanks again.

            Undo the 2 bolts completely and remove. then grab the trim that runs along the door (Foot scuff plate) in middle and give a jerk upwards. It will come out. The step section should just lift off.

              Thanks, was trying to do it earlier but looks like the forum was down for a few days. Anyway, job done thanks to all. Next time will hit the forum first rather than trying Utube etc!
