How easy is it to remove all the lower plastic body panels and arches to check underneath and possibly repaint then refit.. and how easy / hard to refit...?

The clips that hold the lower edge lock in place by shoving the centre in, to remove them gently ease the centre out.

Once they are all out gently ease the trims away, the rest of each panel is held on by plastic poppers which just pop out.

All the clips are available on ebay etc.

How easy the job is to do depends on the condition of the clips and how gentle and patient you are! LOL!

I'd use a plastic trim tool to help the clips out but I tend to try and 'restock' whenever I am at the breakers yard (Vitaras and Ignis use the same clips)

Warm weather also helps that the clips do not break.
