United Kingdom 2015 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 SW Corris Grey
Rear quarter interior panel on puma defender

New to the forum.

Hoping you can help. I’m fitting new rear quarter windows on a 110. The LR security bolted ones.

Firstly how easy is is to remove the rear side panel? Is it just clips that just prise away or is there anything else I should be aware of?

And secondly I have the interior rear quarter panel removed. I’m trying to work out how it goes back on. Do you put the clips on the metal framework and push them in? Or do you put them in the holes and push them on from there? Also which way around do they go? When they were removed they popped out.

Thank you in advance, I’m a learner!

To remove the side panel:

    1. Prise open the covers on each end of the grab handle with e small screwdriver and remove the four large self-tapping screws concealed beneath .
    2. Remove the two fir tree fixings from the lower edge, within the seat recess.
    3. Remove the large fir tree fixing from the leading edge of the panel, within the side door recess.
    4. Unbolt the lower fixings for the second and third row seat belts.
    5. Pull the lower edge of the panel towards you and then lift to release the clips along the top edge that sit in the roof internal gutter.


To fit the clips on the end panel, push the smaller opening - the side nearer to the white squiggle in your picture - onto the metal bracket on the panel. You'll see two sharp teeth on the return and these sometimes need bending back into shape, or the whole thing needs squashing slightly with pliers, so that the clip will grip properly. The wider part of the clip then gets pushed on to the metal lip of the door opening, typically with a thump on the panel from the palm of your hand.

Hope that helps. Darren

Lucky that your clip did not break. The quarter panel trim are a b!+c# to prise out. I tried applying some grease on the paint work for the clip to ‘slide’ easier for the next time (which was soon after, as wanted a reversing camera) but not much of an improvement. Hence I stocked my spares bin Laughing

Thanks Darren and Dinnu. Great Info!

I wasn't sure whether or not the clips went in the brackets first or on the frame and then pushed into the brackets.
