Quote from: carspath on August 22, 2022, 16:51Hi Everyone ,I want to rust-proof the underside of my 2006 Mk3 ,and I am keen to get the rust-proofing agent on the rear subframe too .Access to spraying the rear subframe is restricted by the rear ''Nappy '' , so I would like to know if I can remove this plastic trim easily , and if so how to go about it .Using tehn Search function I came across the following from Markiii ( Thanks Markiii ) , but was hoping that I could get a more detailed description of how to get the nappy off as I am not good with spanners : '' (3) - Next I disconnected the nappy, this is done by removing 5 x 10mm bolts, 3 from the bottom edge of the bumper panel, they look like this, and 2 that are held at the front of the nappy, there is also a plastic clip on the right that will need to be removed, it's the same as all theother plastic clips in this job, just lever out the middle a few mm and then pull the whole thing out. ''Thank you
