    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Todays work so far

    Time to clean up those horrible bitty pillar trims.

    Only done the main two on each side so far (how the hell do the little ones in the back doors come out? anyone know?).

    Anyway, pics as always.

    Wind the window down and pull the rubber out of the window frame and there's three torx screws under neath it. Pop the chrome outside trim off and it pops out.

    They're a bit fiddly, to do them properly you need to pull that side of the window rubber right out, which is a pig to get back in again, but it's only taken me a couple of hours today to do all four.

    I just need to work out how to get the small ones further back in the rear doors out now and do those too, anyone?

    Hmm, couldn't see anything, but didn't look too hard, thanks Ken, I'll go have another play with it.

    Sussed it out, there's one big torx bolt at the bottom (door panel off job) then you just wiggle and pull (story of my life) and the runner comes out.

    Just the wing mirror trims to do now, another bit to work out how to get off but it's about to chuck it down, so packed up for now.
