You have to remove air bag first- be careful. There are 2 release buttons (in holes, either side), use blunt tool (dead end of drill bit, punch etc). Then you see 1 screw ea. side for panel you want to paint.

Mine just slides forward, it's a friction fit.

the e brake piece has changed, from 06 to 07, I fought with an 07 one and finally gave up. you didn't indicate what year Sol...


06 NA...106k miles...blowing M1 out the tailpipe, engine is toast.
06 NA...48k miles...Black today, black tomorrow?
01 Aztek GT...84k miles...Black and loaded. Best non-Solstice ever!

Life is good with a pair of Sols in the garage.
