How to Remove a FN2 Roof lining...

Hey guys,was busy with my sound install and thought I would log a few pics of how the removal FN2 Roof Lining if anybody ever wanted to...
Hope this helps...

What you need:
Small and medium flat screwdrivers,
Medium size phillips (star) screwdriver,
Hex sockets T20 or T25 (not sure which one),
10mm Socket and wrench (to remove light panels)
14mm Socket (to remove seatbelt bolts)
Hmmm, think that was about it...

1. Remove boot rubber and rear seatbelt bolt (top one with the cover) then unclipd remove sidecover.
(sorry forgot to take a pic)(its the black coverson thide of your boot as you open you bootlid, that holds your back bored inplace)

2. Flip handel down and locate the two small 'gaps' to insert screwdriver into.

Click the image to open in full size.

This is what the clips look like.

Interesting and a good guide thanks - did you do this for sound deadening (if so did it make much difference?). I've done my doors and plan on doing the footwells/wheel arches too.

Yes I did it for sound deadning and it definately makes a diffrence, but If you not gonna be doing sound comps or a big install then its not neccesary, but as I complete and like to do things full out, it wasnt much of a decision for me.

Here are pics of what I did... (just before I was finished)

Actuall weighed it all before hand, and came upto 15kg, but I removed my front and rear seatbelts as I put in 4-Point harness' and the seat belts came to about just under 10kg, also still need to drop a few other small parts, so it is almost on par...

Out of interest - How long do you think it took to remove and replace the lining?.
As those that have had trouble with the roof blinds ( not on FN2 of course) have posted that Dealers have wanted their cars for sometimes a day or more.

Hey dude, it took about an hour to do (thats with the photo logging) and about the same to replace becauze I was working along. but dealers tell you they need it for a day or so, due to the fact that it gives them lee way on time... Fit it in whe they can...

The roof was about 10m
Doors about 7/8m each (Inside and Outside)
Floor about 30m and (from firewall to the boot)
Rear side pannels about 7m each (Inside and Outside)
