Tow electrics cover removal

Getting the two turn clips undone on the tow electrics cover can be a bit of a fiddle but the key ring that came with my D4 keys is just the job & saves fishing around for coins etc.





Mine is an oval shape and there is one just like it for sale on eBay at the moment - OK it is not from a Land Rover dealer but attach it to your key and you'll always have something suitable for getting the clips undone Very Happy

If you're really worried it says Mercedes on the key ring then you could easily get a piece of fine wet and dry paper and remove the details.

I have no connection to the seller, just came across these whilst looking for some other stuff

I use the long side of the oval rather than the more pointed end.

The same seller also has a similar key ring that is round and would probably work just as well

No expense spared for me....50p does the job nicely (but will use a 2p in an emergency situation!)

And me, 50p fits better but a 2p will do towards the end of the month Whistle
