    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    The the Tail gate boot trim has to come off. Then there is a series of clips to undo but be careful as the strip is really weak and it is very easy to bend/break.

    4 bolts to undo when I took mine off, 2 at either end that are visible when you open the boot and 2 more when you take the boot trim off. I was putting a brand new one on so it didn't matter that the lugs on the clips broke, tbh I'm not sure how to get it off without breaking them!

    Hi,
    my car got hit by a stay trolley in homebase car park and dented the trim.
