I want to remove this panel, the rear door cover on an Adria Twin. Is there a way to remove these plastic fittings so they can be used again? If not any ideas where I can get more?

Centre of the cap has to come out. Best way is a sharp scalpel type blade moved around the edge to prise out with minimal damage. Or you can put a small drill through the centre cap then insert a screw to pull out. They are a bit of a sod to remove without any damage.

Replacements in the link below.

All ours have a very small hole drilled in side of centre part, then use a needle to hook middle bit out. I've been after some black ones but so far not seen any for sale.
I managed to get some black ones from a local Pilote dealer. You need to ask for top hat screw covers for the Pilote Galaxy A class dashboard.

Those sold as 'Swift' have a small slot for where the two come together.

Not cheap. I ordered a pack of ten and with delivery Ā£24. The dash looks finished mind which is what I wanted so worth the price.

I had to remove a couple to access a failed door lock while away from home but picking the centre out always leaves scratch marks, so when I later needed to remove a roof light frame I very carefully drilled a 1/16ā€ hole dead centre and easily removed all the centres with a slightly hooked piece of welding wire, if you can drill the hole dead centre they donā€™t look too untidy when refitted. Obviously if they are in a very noticeable spot then fit new if you can.
