    As the title says.
    I wish to replace the rubber refill but couldn't remove it. Used to be able to remove it fairly easily just by pressing the clip but not this one.

    Can someone point me to the right direction?

    Cheers

    The refill is definitely not original.
    It's a very old 2003 Toyota Corolla Runx Jap import.

    You see those rectangular shaped buttons within the rectangular space outlined by plastic surrounds, squeeze the buttons and at the same time pull the grooved handles on either side, should pull out the clasp, I normally use the same clip and just put a new rubber in by sliding it down the long metal support.

    On a further look at the pics you posted, what I said is not correct, just fiddle around with it and the end piece will slide out, just have to actuate the release mechanism.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Go to Repco,or Supercheap, they replace them for you.

    They don't charge for doing it?

    They just charge for the parts not for installing them.
