    I doubt you will be able to remove them by simply tugging at it!

    I tried that when I changed them on my dad's vectra, but oh no, they didnt move. Luckily I already had the bumper off, in the end I found the easiest way was to cut the plastic weld's off and then I simply melted the new one's lugs back in

    Did you read the full post, there are a few that have tugged them off, turning a 2 hour job into a 20 min job, and they seem to be ok

    Well I did it

    15 mins for both sides, trick is to remove from RH edge and LH edge respectivly, you lose the heat melted catches, but new ones clicked straight in

    And then indsert opposite way round, so on the RH side, insert left side first and vice versa.... make sense... oh well it worked

    Well chuffed
