    Is there a trick to fitting these little buggers? Managed to get one on a while ago, no issues at all. Now I can't get one on the save my life.

    Hook from the top, squeeze together and press up and in? Yes?

    Just keep getting filthy in this bloody weather trying to get them on and giving up after 30 mins. They should be a piece of piss. What am I doing wrong?

    Cheers, Ash

    I done mine in the same way you described but had to apply a bit of force.

    Add some silicon sealant, like wat u seal the bath with, works a treat, and holds em in well enough they dont drop off, but not permanat enough you cant jus yank em off when you need.

    Push them in and hit them a thump with the palm of your hand. Locks them in every time for me

    Cheers for the advice guys. I'll have another crack at it tomorrow. Didn't want to Twat it as I didn't want to snap the clips.

    Hang from the top first, then get your hand in behind the sideskirt and pull down slightly whilst pushing on the cover it will clip straight in.

    There's no trick. They're just shite. Once you do get them in, you'll want to screw them in because they will come off when you're driving along happily.

    There is a trick, but its better to solve the cause. They are hard to fit because the jacking points are pushed in. Which in turn pushes out the sideskirts, which gets strain on the covers.

    You will have to relieve strain on the sideskirts, then the covers will just pop in without issue. Check my pics here:
