Cheers Johnny - will take a look this weekend when I swap the wooden dash trim over from the parts car :)
No doubt there is a thread on here about the most successful way to remove the wooden trim but......have you any guidance about their removal?

There is a 214 in my scrapyard and although its a bit battered, the wooden inserts are salvageable. Any hints, tips or guides.....

Cheers, Richard

I start from the door side (curved side of trim). Get a flat blades screwdriver underneath and slowly prise it off. There are 4 clips that hold it to the dashboard.

It’s an easy piece of trim to remove, just take it steady and try not to bend the wood.
