Interior ??

Can someone tell me how to remove the little round plugs that hold the panels on? Trying to pull them off with no idea how to.
Thanks David

What I did was take a 4 prong fork and cut the middle 2 prongs off. Then just slip that behind it and wiggle the thing off.

Wiggle and pull... I've broken a few of them but dont worry, you can get replacements at any decent auto parts store cheap.

...I was going to mention that the same "decent auto parts store" that would stock replacements, would probably also stock a "panel removal tool" as well (in case you didn't want to modify a dinner fork!)... but, obviously, you already have one of those.

yeah the fork should work, because I build seats which require quite alot of these plastic push pins that you're talking about, and we have a fork-like tool that we use to remove them, and it's made my Snap On, so I assume you can get some somewhere, or make your own out of a fork.
