Supplied by Dan9ermouse.

Firstly drill the heads off all the rivets, theres about 40 odd in all, make sure they dont spin whilst drilling, as it will melt the kit. Then remove the front and rear bumpers and front wheel arch liners.

Side skirts are held in place with push on metal inserts (look like fine thread screws) which are in turn screwed into bodykit and are a push fit into the sills into plastic grommets, , its inevitable they will stay in the car, just gently prize the skirts off, starting at one end. Remove the inserts with a pair of pliers if they stay in the car.

The front and rear valances are held on mostly with rivets, lots are underneath the car, again a case of gently removing the valances one by one and removing the bodykit.

The arch extensions are again rivets, and are again held with the metal inserts into the bodykit as a push fit into bodywork behind wheelarches, also inserts with threads (around radius of wheelarch) - but this time have small nuts holding it against the arches on both front and rear, they have rubber backing washers on the original bodykits. again remove these and carefully remove the wheelarch extensions.

You can buy a bodykit accessory kit from ford still, as you'll need 40+ black headed rivets, and replacement plastic nuts (these replace the rusty old nuts with rubber washers)

Hope this helps.
