Side Scoop Removal

I havent found a way to remove the side scoops for my car. Has anyone tried this? I want to put the covered ones in.

Flat head screwdriver wrapped in a rag does the trick. If you break some of the push pins holding it down you can always buy new ones at any autoparts stores

Is it just as easy to put new ones in? I'm most likely getting some off a GT

Or just grab and pull. Right before you think it will break it will pop off.

Six plastic pins on each scoop. Several will probably stay on the car.

Or if you have some monofilament line (fishing line) some Dawn dish washing soap mixed with water (lubricant) you can spray that around the scoop and then slide the line underneath the 3M tape! It will cut through the tape without damaging the cars paint or do it dry but not sure of the friction. The point it is there will be no chance of scratching your car if you accidently slip. It does work and quite well. Perhaps not as fast as the other ways.

Oh yeah! I forgot to mention this. Side the line back and forth in a sawing matter or as if sawing something.

Maybe on an s197 but new edges are held on with push tabs

I just saw a white Mustang like yours yesterday. Looked like the owner smeared a concrete wall on the passenger side. Either way, that could be an option, as his side scoop looked like it came off fairly easily that way. :p

Thank you, I wasn't aware of that and it's a good thing to know!
