This guide will show you how to remove the front and rear door sill trims on a VE Commodore. If you’re installing any form of aftermarket wiring or installing speakers, this is the guide you will need!
- TORX Screwdriver
- Trim Removal Tools
Front Door Sill
Pry your fingers underneath the capping trim and pull upwards to release. You need to swing the piece upwards to remove it.
Using a trim removal tool, release the clip as shown.
The seat rail trim can now be removed by pulling towards the front of the car.
With the seat rail trim removed, the front door sill can also be removed. Using your fingers, pull firmly upwards on the door sill trim to release the clips.
Kick & Side Panel Trim Removal
Remove the glove box side trim using a trim removal tool. Next, pull on the rubber door seal to separate the seal from the bodywork.
You can then remove the pictured trim by releasing the two metal clips.
Remove the kick panel by unscrewing the two TORX screws and removing the fuse box cover. The clips can now be released using a trim removal tool.
Remove the TORX screw as pictured, then gently pull upwards on the trim to release the clips.
All trim pieces can be reinstalled by lining up the pieces and pushing down firmly to engage the clips. TORX screws in can then be reinstalled where applicable.
