Rear centre cluster casing removal

Hello

Has anyone been able to remove the perspex of the centre cluster? Mine has a chip in the corner and its bugging me and was wondering if i can replace it. Obviously would have to bond it i imagine but wondered if it can actually be done

You would be better off, and easier, sourcing a second hand tailgate. The part alone is something daft like 750 from Honda and its bonded in, and you might even need to remove the rear screen to fit it.

Ah, yup, open the tail gate, remove the plastics on the inside of the tailgate, they need a really really really good tug to the the four pop studs along the middle to release and the whole plastic panels comes away giving you access to the bolts to release the "light bar" along the middle. Cant remember if you need to remove the outer ones first before you can remove the middle one or not.

Leave alone now till Tuesday next week I'm really happy with the results gloss black outer and then e-tech smoke tint tempted to do the type R centre centre considering the outer part is only smoked? Should I smoke tint the rear centre cluster and frog tape the fog , reverse light??
