    Not serious but annoying. I can't get cover off from behind seat in my X250 without wreaking it... can anyone give me a clue plse. the step alarm has stopped working and apparently there's a connection at back of the electrical unit..step works fine

    secondly. something has fallen down back of drawer unit and need to remove it there is no obvious way to do this that I can see. its not like a domestic units that just lift out..bloomin germans :)

    Hi Judge; it looks like the cover is hinged on the right side, so carefully looking and prising the cover along the left edge ought to work, prise between the top edge and metal flange...if that makes sense, also same at the bottom corner.
    Photo a bit blurred on the other issue, sorry,
    Hope it helps

    I have a German desk at home with similar runners on the drawers.. the only way to remove them is to unscrew the runner inside the drawer .. yours may be the same.

    Hi Judge
    On the drawer, at the front of the sliding units there are small gray catches that can be moved, allowing the drawer to slide out.
    Dont know abiut the seat base, sorry.

    Maybe a Posl owner will help, but it still looks like it pivots on RHS and fixes/clips on LHS

    regards

    Not trying hard enough Eddie, they are a bit of a pig and can break them easily (been there done that).

    There is a moulded clip in the cover about quarter of the way in from each side that clips under the metal seat base, the bottom has a couple of moulded hooks that hook under a steel rail, must release top clips first, worth putting the heating on for Half an hour to get the plastic a bit softer before trying.
    Once you have got it off cut the top clips off and refit using a flange head self tapper on each side about half way down, I did that on my last van, Hymer now do it as standard.

    Deft clips in there broke one of mine off. Fixed back with a cable tie and blue tack to stop any rattle
    U might be able to reach in from the front with a small flat blade screwdriver to ease the clips off.

    both jobs done, much obliged. my mistake was pushing the clips down when you need to push them up while pulling cover back

    where the two runners meet, when fully extended there is a grey plastic clip that sticks out. on one side you push up , the other down...

    now where did I put that silicon spray:)
