    Bump strips on a coupe......................

    ..............how do i remove them?

    one of mine on the rear quarter (not on the door?) is starting to come away.

    i can see a hole in the panel, and a white clip on the strip, but no peg/spigot to go in the hole?

    do i need to pull the clips awy from the panel? or somehow unclip the strip?

    i'm assuming that i need a new clip too?

    thanks Matt

    Common problem, not sure of the cure though.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    When i removed them on my 5 door hatch, i opened the front door and slid the bump strip towards the front door. I had to give it a wee tap with a piece of wood and a hammer, however it popped loose and it then clips off.

    The front door slid towards the back of the car in the same method. I dont imagine vauxhall changing the process for a coupe

    open the door, and give the bump strip a nudge towards the door, you will see and feel it move the gently pull it away from the car, theres 3 or 4 little clips be carefull not to break them.

    or take of the inner 1/4 card and stick your hand inside the rear 1/4 you will feel the clips protruding into the void, squeeze them together and push.

    or try opening the door and pushing them forward ( i put my trainer on my hand ) or use a rubber mallet, can scratch the car when sliding the strip though.

    From what I read the best way is to take the door card off, less risk of potential damage
