Remove handbrake boot-any idea?

Anyone know how to remove the handbrake boot?

For those interested, the gear boot (manual) is pretty easy. At the back edge of the boot there are two little clips (hidden), designed so you simply push the boot fitting forward and the boot will pop out. There is only one other clip at the front and once the back is popped out, simply slides out. Refitting is reverse. Push the front clip under the housing edge to position it, then push the back edge forward until the two little clips pop into plce.

Have tried the same principal on the handbrake boot, but doesn't seem to work. Don't want to snap anything while trying!

Re: Remove handbrake boot-any idea?

to remove the handbrake boot, the fitting has two clips on either side at the front (about 5mm from the front edge). CAREFULLY place a small screwdriver down each side and use them to lever the clips inwards towards the centre of the boot fitting. You should then be able to pull the front of the fitting up. The back simply slides forward to release. There is a little tab that inserts in a hole.

Hope this helps

Thanks for that. Once I get the bloody car back from the panel shop I'll give it a go.
