door bin cover replacement question

Recommended Posts


I hope I can help. If it is the bin lid covers you want to change I recently did this myself. The hard way is to open the bin and look at the edge nearest the door handle. There is a swivel point/pin here. It is surrounded by a black semicircular plastic piece which is an extension of the bin lid but the silver head just sticks out a little. Grab this silver bit with small snub nosed pliers and pull hard. I tried 1-2 times and gave up as the pin head was getting scratched.

An easier way is to use a size 6 torx bit on a small sleeve (1-2 cm) and unscrew all the tiny screw heads on the undersurface of the bin lid. I think there were about 11 or 12. Dont loose them!!

The hardest one is the most medial (next to the door handle side). This will require a bit of contortionism (hence the small sleeve on the torx bit). However it is only a small screw and will eventually come out.

Then simply replace the bin lid cover. it will take about 15 minutes per side.

If it is the whole lid and not the cover you want to change then you will have to persist with the snub nosed pliers.

Good Luck m8!!

You are correct, It's bin cover that I am trying to replace. I tried removing all screws and got down to the last one, and just gave up.

There must be an easier way, I just refuse to believe that P engineers will be so lame. In the picture there is pin ring and direction states to remove it using ring tool. I just can't see it (ring.)

I will wait, and hope for easier solution. ( for a week or so). I have 3 spoke coming, so might do the whole thing in one shot.
