    Default Impossible to fit...HELP!!!

    Hi all,

    Help please!!

    I am trying to fit my new vxr rear insert, but i think its quite impossible ,as I have the rear XP skirt on the bumpe. The rear xp skirt is fitted over the original black insert, which makes it impossible to take the original one off!!

    There is not enough play in the skirt to pull it out a bit to get the original insert out!! so I cant pull it as everyone else seems to have done, or i will pull the skirt off!!

    And how do you get the plastic lugs outof the slats??

    Has anyone ever fitted a vxr insert with the xp rear skirt in place??

    Any help would be much appreciated,

    Thanks,
    Roy.

    Thats what I have read to Glenboy, but i still wouldnt be able to pull whats left of it out behind the skit, and also I will have to try and put the new one behind the skirt somehow!!

    I think its quite impossible to be honest, without breaking the skirt!

    Dont know what to do !
