    No answer from bish. Do the pins tap out, if so which way, or un-screw ?

    shouldnt need to knock the pins out , the bracket should be in 2 parts and the pin is the swivel point

    they should be bolted to the roof under the head lining so should only need to undo a few bolts and disconnect the electrical harness and vola , roberts your mothers brother

    Dont undo the bolts under the headlining, dissconect the wireing plug in the rear fusebox, then take the plug off, as this wont fit through the hole, then feed wire up,then take off the boot struts, (make sure someone is holding up the tailgate or you will be asleep in the boot) then take the little clips off the pins and knock the pins out, you will see which way to knock them out, they only go one way....job done.....
