Hi I'm wanting to remove the rear arch extensions from rear doors, they look like there attached to a plate with melted plastic rivets and then the plate bonded to door, has anyone removed them to paint them and then re attach them, thanks
Yep been there done it, they are held on by a number of things,
Firstly the rubber seal is adhesive, this will need to be removed and will require new.
Also there is metal clips on bottom of arches clipped to the door,
The rest is plastic push in clips , liable to brake as you remove so will need new ones.
The metal bracket fixed to the arch is prone to rust so check that out.
I actually bought new arches as my metal bracket was shot.
Any more info just let me know :smthumbup
