C5 X7 tourer rear tailgate trim

Post by centurus2400 »

Would you believe the rear wiper motor appears to have come loose from its moorings and I never know 'quite' where the blade will end up!

I've got as far as taking off the plastic covers and unscrewing the torx fasteners along the base of the trim, but would appreciate any advice on how i proceed from here.

Many thanks for that - I think it can wait until a warm spring day though!
