    Default Boot Interior plastic (Saloon)

    Hi Folks

    I have a picture of my boot in which you can see the plastic where the boot catch is, is fairly damaged. I was wondering, how easy is this to change and how much would a replacement part probably cost me?

    The previous owner must have just dumped a load of crap in the boot lol.

    Thanks
    Tony

    No idea on cost, but very easy to replace...

    I have a hatch but apparently the saloon one is the same...

    Lift the carpet out of the boot and swivel the 2 load-retaining rings that come through the plastic strip so they both point straight forward. Put your fingers underneath the bottom of the plastic strip inside the boot and pull it gently forwards (i.e towards the front of the car) and upwards. You will hear the retaining clips pop out as you do this. Once all the clips are free, just free the rear edge of the plastic trim from under the rubber boot seal with your finger or a screwdriver.

    In the famous Haynes words, refitting is the reverse of removal. Make sure that the plastic trim sits under the rubber seal and that all of the clips pop back in.

    I bought mine from a breakers yard and only paid £5. Check out cars being broken on eBay perhaps?
