    the usual torx fittings up the wheelarch. and the usual clips under the lights that mean you have to take the rear light clusters out but then VX became sneaky and hid some more fixings under a little hinged flap that runs along the length of the boot aperture..you'll see it and think it's mould lines, but hinge it down and you'll reveal more fixings. then it's just the usual friction clips against the rear 1/4 so a good tug will see them off..

    Just washed the car and had a look for the hinged flap. I see what you mean. I think i should be able to sort it now. Just waiting for our super royal mail service to turn up with the goodies.
    Thanks GSi.

    Yes, they should be marked.

    Depending on what depth the sensors are, you may find yourself having problems with the two middle sensors due to the crash limiter- big aluminium bar behind the bumper.

    Maybe i will try and see if they work at the bottom of the bumper. a bit like the estate one's. Maybe the inner two on the trim and the outer two on the bumper. I'll give it a try with bluetack and see how it go's. I dont want to drill the bumper and find they are to deep, and hit this beam.
