    I thought about this when I had mine as well but never followed up on it- I'd imagine the whole roof panel would need to be replaced though?

    Probably be exactly the same as Astra ones - they'll be plastic clips screwed to the car then the plastic will clip in;

    Would imagine the chances of them being damaged on removal are extremely high!

    Hmm I'm not sure it's the same, I can see some plastic white clips, I touched one and it snapped very easily not sure which way the clips meant to turn, wrapping the roof gonna be awkward with these still in

    slide a microfiber cloth under the end boot end so you have the trim in the middle of the cloth and pull upwards gently but firmly you can then work along the roof the clips sometimes snap but are easy enough to replace

    Where can I get replacement clips? The VX workshop guide how to remove these make no sense at all but will try your method, also the aerial... Am I right in assuming the inside roof is attached by Velcro? And that it can easily be reattached after removal? Thanks

    The roof lining is held in by clips I think. I believe you can lower the lining at the rear near the boot lid just enough to change the aerial without dropping it all the way down. Have you tried LMF for your roof rail clips, if not you can get different pack's of clips on eBay by the hundreds.

    I've searched for the clips online mate and can't find any. When I search ' corsa d roof rail gutter clips' there's just one single one on eBay for £3. Someone said they got clips from Vx back in 2011 but don't seem to see any nowadays for sale... Unless they are called something else. I've had look at rear roof lining and I think that should be ok, doesn't seem to pull down but will try with force when about to do job, will try not to crease it

    There is a guide on UKCD for dropping the roof lining to replace the aerial base, might help?
