Aftermarket or genuine kit?

Either way, both would have had some glue used to stick them on the body work.

If genuine, the front skirt is held in place by nuts/bolts. I think there are 5 or 6 of them. Not sure if you can get to them without taking the front bumper off. The threaded part is imbedded in the skirt so just undo the nut. Rear skirt is also held in place by the same way as the front...unsure on the amount of mounting points. Rear skirt also has screws at the wheel arches I think. Side skirts I'm not too sure off but at least screws at the wheel arches and maybe some on the underside with also glue. Door mould is held in place by one screw and glue. Screw goes through the door frame so need to get at it from the inside.

If it's not a genuine kit and made of fibreglass and probably held in by lots of glue and some screwes, you could heat it up a little (not much, you might ruin the paint on the bumpers) and use a sharp knife to get at it.

You'll need a bit of patience with fibreglass since they can break easily. Genuine are rubber/plastic so have a lot of flexibility. Also you will most likely ruin the paint on the kit during removal in the forms of cracks and scratches.

no worries about the paint work as im taking it off another car and re spraying to fit on my car.for some reason i bought the car and only had the side skirts, missing the front and rear.

cheers daniel
