Moving along the panel of a protective element, methodically turn out/release all fixture then the panel has to be removed freely. Remember that some fixing clamps have a two-component design. To remove such clamp it is necessary to take at first from it the central pin then the main part of the case with lock hooks is already taken out. On some models protective panels fasten by means of rivets which should be drilled.

Decorative strips and emblems

For fastening of this sort of finishing components the special sticky structure which is softened when heating is used. The element gets warm previously by means of the hair dryer, then the glue layer is knifed by thin. In view of high risk of damage of a paint and varnish covering when cutting of the softened glue layer, removal of elements of decorative finishing will be most correct to be charged to specialists of car service.
