Gap on the plastic of the boot door

Hello,

I have some gap between the plastic and the metal on the boot door...

This is a kind of any pin fail? Should i disassemble the plastic? What is the correct procedure for that?

All them plastic clips are held together with them plastic pop clips,try giving them a good tap and see if that solves it

It is what I thought on the beginning... I tried to tap the plastic to inside to see if it goes to the proper place but no luck ...

Anyone knows how to disassemble completely this plastic? I am afraid of break it

I took mine apart perfectly. Start from the back pop clips. Use a flat screw driver loosen it a bit then use a sponger if you have one. Heres a pic to show you where all the pop clips are located. Once you pull the back pop clips off, then the rest will just comes off easy as you pull it off from the middle. Wiggle it while pulling down on each side

Many many thanks. This is something I want to look at it.

I am seeing there is nothing fixing the plastic on the left/right edges...

The left/right corners are held in via the screws within the recessed grab 'handles' but as these corner fixing aren't positioned around the edge so you may get a slight gap there.

looks the same as the other honda clips - can be got from Car Trim Clips & Fasteners - Trade Prices - Vehicleclips.co.uk at a fraction of the price of the stealer.

So you mean there is expected to have some gaps between the plastic and the door itself?
