As so many have done this previously, and I'm struggling so much.. How on earth do you undo the fastenings on the A pillar which hold on the front mudguards. I've got all bar 3 of them, the ones hidden by the door. I have tried taking the pin out of the door restraining strap, failed there too. I was going to take the door off entirely, but can't undo those bolts either. So, can someone please give me suggestions?
I used a centre punch and hammer to pursuade the door strap retaining pins out, and slipped a sheet of corrugated card between the door and wing to protect the paint. Didn't need to take the door off. Or you could try getting hold of a right-angled screwdriver.
Thanks Greg, the punch and hammer didn't budge the pin initially.Then after reading your suggestion I took the grinder to the top of the pin and a bigger hammer. I did have to drill out one of the fastenings. The mole grips got me. Now there has been blood, so it will "be a good'un" I do appreciate the input.
