I’ve never been keen on ‘wood’ trims in cars however I’m even less a fan of ‘carbon fibre’ or metallic trims. Therefore when an opportunity came to get some eucalyptus blonde ‘wood’ trims at a good price I jumped at it. The wood being the lesser of 2 evils…
Fitting them and it was a reasonably easy task. The glove box trim required the Torx screw removing at the right hand side of the trim first. Then it was a case of ‘just’ sliding the trim to the left to get it off. (It’s quite tight!) I forgot to put the clip that the screw bites into onto the new trim so had to slide the new one off after putting it on the first time!
The other two trims required the circlip hold the old trims prising off so that was a bit of a job! Had to be brave and pull out the panel and ping off the clip with a screwdriver.
Anyway, here’s the before and after: –
