Boot floor removal

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am trying to get my boot floor out but can not remove the last two fixings.  The picture with a single arrow shows a screw that appears to have a spinning nut on the other side.  The same is on the other side of the car.  I can not access the nut anywhere as far as I can see.  Am i just being thick or what.  Also the second picture shows the fixing screws removed but the panel does not want to come out.  It is very loose but am wondering if there is another fixing somewhere which I havent seen.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Phil

Rivnut spinning round! You are going to need to grind off the heads. They are famous for doing that.

 

The side parts should just come out when them screws are removed but I think there maybe some silicone or just stuck with 35 years of being done up?

The boot floor has another screw under the lip where the word remove is in your pick the side finishers are a little awkward to remove to get to it. you will have to flex them a little.
