Rear facia screws
#1
Hi all,

Simple one - anyone got a good way to remove these (end of facia) screws? I have tried a few things and I can't even get a dremel in there to cut the darned things off...

Have you tried a screwdriver? Pozi-drive. :wink:

Buy one of these sets

One of the most useful sets I have, and perfect for removing the fascia screws. Also useful for lots of limited space work on the car (like tightening the clamps on accumulator hoses).

Can you get a pair of mole grips in from behind the light cluster onto the screw thread?

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Thanks all - I've tried a set that small and I can't get the head in against the body without it being at an angle that will easily (and quickly) round off the head. I've tried mole grips on a posi-drive head too.. again, I can't get enough pressure on it. Every other screw but these last two have come out.

That is something I haven't tried. I think mine might be too big but if I can get it to just move a smidge, it'll free. Good idea! I'll report back.
