If you're reading this then chances are you're as dumb as me.
I needed to replace a blown number plate bulb. This means that the boot trim covering the lamp holders needs to be removed for access. I just pulled it until it came away, but in the process destroyed most of the trim buttons which had - up till then - held it in place.
What I didn't realize about the trim buttons was that the way they work relies on the central bit of the button being pulled out first BEFORE trying to remove the panel. Ingenious really, unlike the rubbish ones fitted to the Austin 1100 in which I passed my driving test many, many years ago.
Yet again great service from MX5 Parts.
