    confused tailgate interior trim panel removal

    I am trying to remove the interior trim panel from the inside of the tailgate on a vectra.. There are 4 plastic pins/studs that hold the bottom part in place, is there a way of removing these things without wrecking them.. Are they reusable or do i need to buy some new ones?

    I've just re-read the original question and see that it relates to the four studs that hold the bottom part in place. These simply pull straight out; I used a small pair of bent-nosed pliers if I remember correctly. Just open the pliers enough to fit each side of the stud and gently ease them under the head of the stud and the trim. They should come out intact and be reuseable.
