Half cage bolt in removal?


ClioSport Club Member
Hey guys,

I'm about to embark on a big project to strip and overhaul my 172. I don't plan on removing front windscreen.

Do you think it will be possible to remove the cage that is bolted in?

See the pic. Cheers.

As above really. Is a bit fiddly and definitely easier with another pair of hands. I seem to remember the last time I did it that removing the steering wheel afforded me a bit more room to manoeuvre it out. It is tight! Not sure what if any trim you still have in, but be careful not to scratch it.
Thanks lads. Not a lot of trim left inside and i'll probably have the dash and wheel out before the cage too... by the sounds of it, that should make it easier.

@Yorkshire Pudding really? I hate it lol. I rather a single because that's what's OEM. I might see if I can mod it or get a new single.
I think it's the inner chav in me that just loves shotgun exits from Vauxhalls 😂

I found mine to be tight AF. it was a breaker so the screen wasnt important but if I had wanted to be sure I would have wanted 3 pairs of hands, or 2 and some extra eyes.

Seats out then move the whole cage forward enough to tilt the top of the cage backwards so the legs are facing the front of the car and it will come out easy out of the passenger side
