    Kindly do a DIY with Actual pictures please !!

    To kick off we need to remove the dashboard centre panel. For its removal follow this.


    TOP NOTE:
    When prying with a flat-tip screwdriver, wrap it with protective tape, and apply protective tape around the related parts, to prevent damage.
    Take care not to scratch the dashboard and related parts.
    Detach the clips to remove the centre panel (A) by disconnecting the connectors (B).
    Install in the reverse order of removal.

    Hello, many thanks for the information. Unfortunately I have had a major problem removing a broken lock nut on rear wheel. 5 days chiseling so far and still not off. Every method on internet been tried. Had to cut part of stud off, so now is a huge job. This nut was last torqued on by Kwik Fit after tyre change. Seriously looking at getting rid of the best car I have ever had. I will let you know how I get on.

    Correctly done and by KF however never go in the same sentence buddy. sorry to hear your issues but things like these DO happen on cars and that part of cars life.

    you may need to get to a garage and change it , don't let this minor inconvenience make you to get rid of a perfect car which you like.
