In the following tutorial you will learn or revise how to replace the boot lock surround, i went from pre97 to post97
Simple guide, easy to do but worth putting up :)

From:

To:


Tools
Torx T25
8mm screw driver wrench thing.. lol (sorry i dont know the proper name)


Guide

1) Firstly unlock the boot and open it

2) Get the T25 and unscrew the two clips on either side.


3) Pull the cover but close to where the push pins are along the edge to avoid damage


You will now have an exposed lock..

4) Unbolt the boot lock surround, it has 3 pins in the form of a triangle:


5) Holding the lock in place gently pull the boot lock surround off, and then gently let the lock fall to to avoid damage to it.

6) As the boot lock surrounds are direct replacements, you now put the new one in place

7) Put the lock in place

8) Bolt it up to secure it

9) Fit the cover back on by the screws and pushpins

10) Admire the new surround :)

Result
to have a nicer looking boot surround:


Cost
Bootlock surround - £10 posted (ebay)
Torx Keys - £6 posted (ebay)
and about 10 minutes or less

Note: Thank you geebs for providing me with the ebay link for the boot lock surround

I know, that's what I have on mine, but the previous owner taped it to the post 97 surround.

Will all be sorted when my rebuild commences :thumbs_up:
