    AU side mirror backing.......

    Fellas,

    Need some help before I go and break clips etc.
    The side mirror backings/scallops or whatever they are called.
    How to flick them off please ?
    I can see there is 3 clips so using a long small screw driver I have tried from under the clip doesn't budge, beside click doesn't budge, top left right centre wtf - I'm probably being overly careful but has anyone done this and advise please ?
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    Try clipping a wall on a freeway somewhere, the V8SC buys never seem to have any problems removing them.....

    hehe - ofcourse narrow road against the 335's, well 1 335, the F won't get out in fear the quality decals peel off, he'll have to risk all getting by in the nitro - the yellow canary can be any road any time come in spinna.

    Hum, no one can advise the right way getting those frigging scallops off !
    Nothing much via googled - you tube has nothing, what a PIA.
