    Does anyone have a tip as to how to remove the beige plastic items which hide the screws on caravan sockets?
    I need to remove a panel in my fitting a Henry water heater project.

    A thin strong pointed object will lever them out.

    I found a small penknife blade perfect, on the underside.

    Stanley knife blade tip inserted and very gently twisted sideways will pop out the little covers.

    Done it

    Thanks for the suggestions, I eventually found a sharp enough knife on my Swiss army knife.
