Does this mean that not all E32's have these shitty little nuts at the back? If not how does the wood stay in place, as it's not just down to the plastic Clips Surely? Mine had both when I changed it, in fact I still have some of the plastic Nuts as the Stealer will ony sell them in a bag of 20 Approx...Any body want some?

Removal is a pain, especially the middle one. Plastic nuts should not have been used. The two wood trims L & R have clips in addition. I threw away the plastic nuts and fitted them with metal winged nuts 5/32". The winged nuts can be easily tightened and it will be a lot easier to remove if you need to do so later.
