Wood Trim Removal

Post by waue1978 » Fri Jan 21, 2011 3:37 am

Seeing as I've sold all of the wood trims from my old grey doorcards & dash panels, I thought I'd take a few pics as I removed them, just in case anybody wants to do the same in the future.

The first is the easiest - the panel on the drivers side nearest the door. Simply get a small screwdriver at the edge & prise it out. It's only held in with 2 little spring clips:

& these go into the holes you see here:

Image

Next came the glovebox. When you open your glovebox, you'll see a little row of torx screws at the top of the door. Simply unscrew & you end up with this:

Image
(I put the screws back in the trim afterwards)

Hardest (but still not too taxing) was the trims on the doorcards. You start off with this:

Image

Turn it over & the view you get is this:

Image

There are 2 ways you can remove the little silver things. You could get some needle nose pliers & get a tight grip of the tiny lip on the edge of the rings like this:

Image

Then turn it anti-clockwise & it will start unscrewing it's way up the thread on the trim until eventually it has nothing to grip to & either a) ping off across the room never to be seen again or b) stay gripped in the pliers if you were ready when it got to the top.

Or you could just butcher the hell out of the clips by getting a grip & yanking them upwards until they come off all bent & useless.

Whichever way you choose to do it, remove all 5 rings from each doorcard & you will end up with this:

Image

& this:

Image
It should take less than an hour to do all of this (not including doorcard removal though) & once they're off you can either recover them, paint them or replace with funky black ashwood trims.

That's quite easy, but didn't do any pics when I did that one. May be be changing my leather ones for Rapier cloth to save having to get the door puddle lights switched on, so will take pics when I do.

Can't be that handy - hardly anybody's looked at it. If anybody is interested, the guy that has bought my wood trims will be using them to replace black ash effect trims & he says he is also breaking up an S model if anybody wants the grey.

If anybody is interested, I can easily get in touch with him again.

I'd guess he still has. How much do you want to offer (bearing in mind postage may be more) & I'll give him a shout?

He paid more than that for mine, but may still take that. Sent him an email yesterday, but not heard back yet.

Ah, think I remember something about that - was that all of the parts including the centre console & instrument surround? Are you looking for all of that or just the long bits from the doors & lower dash?

centre console, and instrument surround, with no imperfections at all, the last ones looked like they arrived being trailed along the ground.

I got wrong end of the stick on that 1 then - I thought you wanted the door trims etc. Personally I think the black plastic has a nicer finish as I don't like the rough texture on the grey ones.

Still waiting for a reply from him anyway though.

What an excellent thread, I will be using this.
My tan leather interior looks a bit wierd next to the wood effect, so they will be removed and sprayed the same colour as the car ( Dark Blue ). Might look quite good or they might show me up as being a bit of a saddo, either way I'm doing it....
I'll take some before and after snaps.
