Having worked my way through the Haldex issue (I hope), I thought I'd check the other regular issues and see if I could get ahead of them... and found this thread.

So I bought some trim removal tools and some Sikaflex to fill the cracks I can see near the tailgate hinges. I found the exerts from the Workshop Manual and set about removing the rail end.

First rear one came of readily. The first front one was a real struggle and left some collateral damage on the rail-cap clips. The second front one I can't get off.

The Manual shows loosening the 3 clips from the outboard side and lifting it away, but there are tabs which reach into the roof-rail itself and until these are cleared the cap won't lift at all 'cos the 2 inboard clips are still in place and can't be readily unclipped with a trim tool cos of the sloping angle to the roof.

Anyone got any tips on getting these rail caps off once the outboard clips have been unclipped?
