boot floor removal? - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC - The Lotus Forums Jump to content

How easy is it to remove the one piece boot floor? as mine is damaged round the bolt holes etc. So I want to repair it and replace the fixings and sealing strip. And I also want to make it a two piece so it is easy in the future. I'm a bit worried about unplugging the coil pack etc. or is it easy??

Thanks for the advice.

Not too diificult this :-) Depends on whether the floor has ever been out.If not then it is an absoluett b****d since the silicon kit they used originally is a bitch to cut and most of the bolts will be rusted.Just grind off the bolts which wont move and when replacing just change all bolts to "speed nust".Makes removal in the future easy.

Ciol etc you can lift up out of the way :-)

Hi,

When you remove the rusted captive nuts, I used spire nuts. I cut a slot in the fibreglass next to the original captive and inserted the spire nut, then added copperslip grease to stop further rusting. I had to fix about 4-5 rusted captive nuts, now I can remove my boot floor in under 10 minutes, but I do only have the vaccum pump and not electrics in the box section under the cover plate.

I drilled mine out, you may need a freind to hold them with grips, to stop them spinning. Then went a bought stainless fittings to replace, I also replaced the seal around the edges, a single sided ruber tape will do this.

I'll be removing mine again in about 2 months, I'm not expecting any problems.

Thanks for the replies mine has a variety of fixings and some empty holes. I'm going to fill all the holes and the broken parts of the panel and then redrill and fit new fixings.

Thanks for the help.
