Side Scoop Help

I need to take of the current side scoops on my car, how do I go about doing this? I have some
New ones to go on. The cobra ones.

They are held on by 5-6 plastic clips. With a very small flat head or blade pop out the black insert. That will give you the leverage to gently but firmly pop off the scoop.

Should I wrap the flat head in a towel as to not scratch the paint around it?

You might be able to just use your fingers, I just pulled mine off for giggles.

Did you just start at the top and pull and slowly work your way around?

Cool, thank you. I'm painting my car in about a week, if I can ever get over the flu and install the rest of my parts.

I don't see how u did it with ur fingers... I just tried. I can move it but I can't pop it off, also what is the strongest way to attach the louvers and side scoops to the car?

Re: Side Scoop Help

Yah I'd wrap the flathead screwdriver with a towel or black electrical tape to prevent scratching the body or the scoop.

Do it slowly and carefully and you won't break any of the clips. They can be re-used depending on the type of replacement scoop. If they are the OEM GT/Mach 1/Cobra style then the attaching clips should work on them just as they did on the v6 scoops.
