    Very easy. I swapped my black ones for colour coded silver ones and cleaned out teh channel.

    Get yourself a cloth and a small flat blade screwdriver. Now starting at the back beside the tailgate use the cloth to protect the paint work and slip the screwdriver under teh gutter cover and simply prise it up. They are only held on by a couple of plastic clips and are held in along the side of the windscreen. Easy job, just take your time.

    I'll have to have a good scrounge around. The ones I've seen arnt in any better condition than mine.

    I've got colour coded ones already just that their abit pitted and stuff.

    Easyest way to explain is looks like welding blobs on parts by windscreen
