As part of my refurbishment of the interior I wish to remove the rear parcel shelf and the 3 pieces of trim inside the rear screen. The vinyl covering the end pieces of the screentrim is stapled and has a screw in the folds of vinyl but I can't see what else holds it all in. Any tips?
I found this on the old board is it correct
"Your next step should be to remove the trim pieces that fit between the parcel shelf and the rear window. There are 3 parts, one at each rear corner and the central bit. The corners come out first, but there is a hidden screw in the covering down in the bottom corner, I think this gets under the trim over the D post. If you forget this screw the plastic moulding inside gets broken and the re assembly job gets worse!
As I recall there are no fixings on the shelf itself, the mouldings mentioned above jam the thing in against the seat back."

Allan, just bear in mind that the centre piece of trim under the window is fixed to the shelf from the underside. The shelf and this piece of trim come out as one piece, in the manner that Torsion Bar describes. They can of course be seperated afterwards.
Thanks keith, I did have it right, had located the hiden screw but it still seemed stuck and I didn't want to break anything, it was just gummed up with sticky stuff old cleaner silocone spray I think, side trims came off with a bit of carefull wiggling. I worked out the centerpiece was attached and it was stuck a bit to the tared paper but all out now and nothing damaged. have seperated center trim will reglue edges of vinyl and then recolour when I do the rest of interior.
