Citroen C5 estate interior plastic trmi around wiper motor

Post by riber3 »

Hi everyone

Could somebody please tell me how to lift off/remove the upper plastic trim covering the wiper motor as despite all the clips being off it will not come off completely

What C5 are you referring to? MK I, Facelift (MK II) or MK III (X7)?

Ok, so at present there is a technical issue with the Forum where we can't upload images, so I'll describe it as best I can.

The scuttle panel is removed via the lower 4 clips and then there is a bolt that needs undoing at the top left corner of the right wiper arm as you look at it from the front of the engine. This holds a piece of trim in that must be removed. Finally the wiper arm covers need lifting up and the wiper arm bolts need removing using a wiper arm removal tool as these can be stiff to pull off.

Hi Marc & givemeabreak.

Many thanks for your help and advice and I apologise for the late reply as I didn't get any notifications about my post. Not to worry and I got the trim off ok so thanks again
