Citroen C5 retractable load/dog guard net.

Post by jrc5 »

A local scrappy has one of the retractable load guards that go on the back of the rear seats, I want to get it to allow me to carry more during a tip run, or when we go camping.
Only issue I can't seem to get it off. Is it just supposed to pull off or is there some magic spell I need to use?

If anyone is wondering what I mean there's one on eBay, item number 123189083430

It just pushes to one side and drops off.
Can't remember which side though.

With ease? Or with a gentle hammering?

Just a firm push, no big 'ammers required.

long time ago when i had mine, but don't you have to fold seats forward to slide it off the back of them and when refitting?

I will, in the morning, check how it comes off on my C5 estate. I know it CAN be removed, the seats to have to be down, and I think (but, until I check, I am not sure) it goes from right to left.

Yes, just slides off sideways, to the driver's side I think. Just need to tilt the seat enough so it can slide out the door opening.

Don't forget to unscrew the two brackets from the backs of the seats as well. And taking a photo or two of how they fit on the backs of the seats beforehand would be a good idea.

Funny enough my car already has the brackets.

my current C5 has one bracket :?:

It isn't an estate like the last one.
Seats were nicked from an exclusive.

I have just checked, and it is from left to right to dismount the guard nets.
