Hi all,

I wasn't quite sure which section to put this in, so please feel free to move if incorrect.


I was trying to fit a DCC decoder to my Hornby 4-VEP and, in a rather ham-fisted fashion, managed to accidentally pull out one of the cables that links the roof-mounted PCB to the socket on the chossis.


Having neither the eyesight, skills or patience to try and re-solder the tiny connections, I have bought a replacement PCB, however, I can't figure out how to get the old one out to swap it without having to perform serious surgery.


The PCB is held into the roof by a grey plastic frame, which is secured into the roof by 8 screws.


However, at one end of the motor car, two of the screws are completely obscured by white plastic mouldings (presumably meant to be luggage racks)... see picture below.


The white moulding at the end doesn't appear to be part of the body-shell (there's obviously a gap between it and the plastic end of the body), but I can't seem to find any way to remove it, and am reluctant to start applying brute force/sharp objects in case I'm missing something obvious.


Has anyone got any ideas/suggestions, before I start butchering it?


Many thanks
