    Default Pls, HELP

    Hi.
    Regards to all. Little help. How do I remove the rear side plastic on the end of the car on both sides behind the driver's and passenger doors? Picture in att. I unscrew two screws on the back and managed to pull the lower part of the plastic up, but I can not remove the plastic from the top side where there is something I do not know how to get of and I'm afraid I will break it.

    Thank You.
    Buca.

    Hi, I assume the reason for removal is to sort rattling?

    Note that the main rattle at the back of all Fortwos, 450, 451 and 453 is the glass tailgate metal catch that may need a wrap of black electrical tape around the metal catch to stop rattles, Also the lower door below the glass has two metal catches and again may need tape wrapped as well, it lasts about two years then needs a new wrapping. So not over wrap with tape or glass tailgate gets jambed. I have had to do this on all the Fortwo's I have owned.

    Hi, Col.
    Thank you for your answer but that is not the reason to remove that plastic parts. I want to paint that in other color. You send me link to see how to remove and I came to that part but the problem that I have is top part of the plastics that wont come out and I am afraid to pool stronger. So, what to do with upper part of the plastic, how to remove it-take out of the car?

    Hello Buce

    If you are on facebook, join 'Smart 453 Forum' and once you are a member (takes a few days) then ask the question. There are a lot of members on there that customise their car and should have the answer for you.
