Wheel arch trim removal?

Anyone have description of how the wheel arch trims are removed?
Probably no biggie but like to know the procedure Before I get on with it.

There are two screws on the left hand inside of each wheel arches also there is 2 pop clips under the fron splitter on he corners are below the fogs. Then just pull away better to start from the front splitter as the biggest clip is in the middle/top of the wheel arch itself. Easy job

clips.

you have an 90% chance of needing replacement clips from your local dealer if the plastic has become brittle.

Sometimes they get damaged anyhow and need replacement.

Luckily, the clips are cheap!

Solution, get new clips before you start.

Good thing about this mod is that it's totally reversible. Just buy another set of OEM trims if you get bored of the painted ones.

My granddad crashed his last civic, bearing in mind it was a 8th gen though, but one of the wheel arches was hanging off and it's jut looked like a few clips and that you were just meant to pull them off!

the rear wheel arch has a screw at the front that needs a very short screw driver, or take the wheel off, it its a bit stuck. Then another screw at the at the back under the car so that is easier. Then 2 types of clips, just take out the screw, then very carefully pull the trim away to avoid breaking them clips

I recommend a angled screwdriver. Taking the wheels off is really the last thing you want to do

I am going to attempt to remove my wheel arch trims on my 9gen, should be straight forward as I dismantled my 07 type s few years ago, but can anyone tell me can I drive the car with these removed?? I know it will look stupid for a few days, just curious that there is nothing going to be hanging off or loose as I need car for work

The latest genuine Honda ones are complete with new clips already in place. Undo the screws in the arch, gently prise off the trim, the old clips should come off with the trim. Push the new trim in place - job done. (Easy if the wheel is removed first).
