    So annoying and constantly holding it up trying to pull it up whilst driving and probably going to wear out the gaiter and have to get a new one haha

    Default Done it!

    Finally done it! Thanks for the guide. I removed the mount with a panel trim. 100% easier to do so. It's definite some well worth investing on.

    I replaced my worn gaitor yesterday. I've only recently bought the car, hence I was a bit anxious pulling it apart so soon. However, following this superb guide and referencing You Tube alternatives, I'm really chuffed I've managed to take it all apart and put it back together again with the new gaitor and with little effort. Took about an hour from start to finsh. I superglued the ends of the gaitor where they had originally been stapled. The end result is just as good. Thanks for posting the guide. It helped a lot and gave me confidence to have a go myself.

    At long last I bought a replacement leather gaiter for my FN2 before Christmas. Mine though has been made with many pieces of leather that have been sewn together vertically with red stitching, and weirdly, horizontally as well halfway up the gaiter. Don't know if this a new design, and subsequently I haven't fitted it, but I was expecting different.

    Can't work out how to get a photo off my phone onto this bloomin laptop that i use at work.
