Even though ive not recieved them yet, I thought I would put myself out of my misery and see if I could take the hoops out and to also see if they were self deploying.
Good news... They arnt! (you were right stiggy!)
In case any of you want to know how to take them out.....
I took back covering in the boot and could see 4 bolts which looked like they went right through, which gave me the idea that they were fixed
The Bolts were fastened behind the rear seat, so I have to take the back seat off first, with mean removing the plastic edge so I could get the the screw thatfastened the rear seat in.
It has been taken out in this pic, but you get the idea as to where it was
I simply undid the 4 bolts which you can see were located where the 4 paint marks are, then they just lifted out. Job done
I will update when I finaly get the hoops and fit them in
