Have done a search but haven't found how to remove side skirts. Can somebody tell me how it's done properly? I don't want to break them lol
get under the side of the car and you will see some black plastic push rivets in the bottom of the skirts. Pull the middle of these out using a pair of needle nose pliers. lever the outer bit of the push rivet out using a screwdriver.
then pull the skirts sideways away from the car. you will need to use a little bit of force but it shouldnt take too much. you will feel the skirts unclipping from the clips on the side of the car.
take it slowly and work from one end and you shouldnt have any problems
If your reasonably careful the skirts should come off without damaging the clips. dont worry if you do damage them as they are available easily enough from vauxhall.
