Hi,

I have a Herald 13/60 and along the front edge of the bonnet is a piece of chrome trim. Can this trim be removed without causing damage and, if so, what is the best way to do it.
Thank you

Remove the two end pieces carefully (rocking horse poo) and then it should pull off. Expect a lot of dirt and rust if it's been used a lot.


Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

The two little end pieces should be held in with a small screw underneath, but the main long trim is just pushed on with clips - it will take some persuasion to come off though - either use a proper trim lever or a flat screwdriver with masking tape wrapped round it to help protect the paint / trim.

Use a old credit card to protect the paint and gently prise it up with a small pry bar...

Thirty years of removing trim in car interiors!!
