    Angry Jack punched hole in my skirt!!

    Hello everyone and i hope the ice and snow isnt naffing you all off as much as me!!

    Anyway. rear tyre went POP on me the other day, So commenced the drill. Got my 50p wheel from the boot and went to change. once jacked up and as i was about to take off the wheel. the car slipped off the jack and ripped through my F'ing side skirt!!

    I'll get a picture up tomorrow. should be able to fix it but my question is. . . . . How do you get the sodding thing off without breaking it anymore

    Anyone have an idea as when the snow melts its coming off!!

    Cheers!

    I think they are held on with screws either end (found in wheel arches) and those stupid plastic self tapping popper thingys (technical term that) found under the car at the back of the skirt.
