    technically speaking the bows (technical term for the arms) just pull out - but in reality its not this simple. You can see the join where they should just pull out but personally I had to use a few small pilot drills to get at it. Drill out a little of the flat rectangular section and the bows should remove. The new ones just fit snugly in place.

    If u havent already got them - a pair of replacement bows can be purchased for approx £4 from Vauxhall (Part number 93176479)

    As for the glovebox lid or more precisely the leather look trim being removed....I'm not so sure - with a little determination and patience Im sure anything is possible.

    Hope this helps
