    Default sill plates removal ?

    does any body know if the irmscher sill plates are able to be removed without bending or damaging them, i am assuming they are fixed by double sided sticky tape although i stand to be corrected on that. any advice would be appreciated as there is some on an o4 sri at a local scrapyard and the guy said i could have them for a tenner if i can remove them.

    cheers, graeme.

    i thought they were held on by sticky pads mate, but should be able to take them off with care and a flexible blade of some sort, good luck

    it's trim tape that holds them, so yes, be careful and you should have a £100 saving..

    Take a tin of furniture polish with you, squirt as best you can under the sill plate and leave for about five minutes, the polish will eat the glue on the sticky pads making it easier to remove, (works great on stickers and the like)

    YOU MUST NOT However tell my wife that i know what a tin of furniture polish looks like!!!!!

    I reckon you'd get the same result with WD40 & if you use a nozzle extension tube you should be able to spray it right under the trim

    went back today armed with a bottle of white spirit (to under over the plates and break down the adhesive) and two scrapers (to ease them off) only to fid that the bloke had tried to remove them for me and he had bent them, they were a mess, (plonker) never mind thought it was to good to be true me getting a bargain.
