    oh right

    Front doors (all Mk4's)

    1, Firstly open the door slightly, just on the latch will do fine.
    2, Get a short piece of wood, (something like a 2x2) and place it on the vertical front edge of the rub strip, almost parallel to the door skin but at a very slight angle.
    3, With the heel of you free hand, give the end of the wood a sharp slap - imagine your getting the last bit of ketchup out of a bottle, that's how hard.
    4, Your aiming to move the strip backwards along the door about 1½cm, so it may take two slaps.
    5, Put the wood down and starting at one end, carefully waggle the door strip off the door, taking care around the centre clip - this is the one that is screwed on from the inside, all the rest fit into keyhole slots.

    Rear ¼Panel (£3dr)
    Exactly the same as the front doors - the clips are different and the strip has to go back a wee bit further.

    Inspect all the clips to make sure that they are all intact before refitting and replace as necessary. If you've bust the centre clip, then it's a door cards off time, my hamfisted friend.

    Refitting - doors
    Slide the strips into the keyhole slots and align in the correct position (ensure all clips are in their respective holes) and the give the centre clip a good whack with the hand to lock it down.

    Refitting ¼Panel
    Just push it back onto the clips.
