    Check the video here. Here is the full guide for replacing foot rest. Unfortunately in portugese, but you will get the picture:

    If you look at ~6:00 you can see how the lever is removed. Just pull out one plastic clip and thats it.

    simmo1 - you wouldn't happen to have the diagram/instructions for removing the boot trim on a ST, please?

    I'm particularly interested in the carpet that goes around the wheel arches.

    That just pulls off, start at a corner by the boot glass then work your way around.
