    Interior door sill removal

    Anyone know how to remove the plastic tred plate on the interior? Not talking about the metal sill plate.

    Easy, it simply pulls off.
    It's held on by nothing but six small trim clips, lever them up and off using a plastic trim removal tool.
    The back edge is just underneath the vertical trim piece on the side of the door opening so best to remove that piece first, two simple trim clips just get your fingers in behind and pull.
    These clips can sometimes break/snap so good to have some spares, plenty out there on Fleabay just check the size and shape of an OEM clip before you buy.
    2014 F-Type S coupe, Lunar Grey, red seats and nearly all the options.

    Thank you!

    How would I know what size of clip they are prior to removal?

    That's the problem, you don't!
    As far as I can tell the factory used two or three different trim clips (not including Christmas tree plugs) and you really don't know which ones are used where until you pull the piece off.

    Got it off, pulled off real easy pulling from top of upright section then working down and across. Did not need trim tools. Both sections are attached and unlock from one another once off.

    Unfortunately the reason I wanted it off was to wrap it, turned out too much difficult job due to curve. It has to be perfect so put back as is.

    Now need to work out how to tidy up some light scratches.

    If the scratches are only light I recommend you try Mother's "Back to Black": https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mothers-061...8AAOSwUBJdE~Fx
    If that doesn't work then one thing I have used in the past that has worked is ordinary/old fashioned black shoe polish!
