Once you have all your parts you can then set about fitting the flex floor system
The first thing we need to do is remove everything from the boot and lower the rear seats.

We then need to remove the black pin from the top of the trim (there is one on each side)

[Image: 02_zps2a699476.jpg]

Next remove the rear trim panel (simply pull at the bottom and once it's unclipped pull upwards).
*Take care not to break any of lugs that hold the clips like I did*

[Image: 03_zps13659edf.jpg]

Then unfold the bracket

[Image: 05_zpsc4ed18fa.jpg]

Once you've done that pull the trim out so you can get behind it, you will need a 7mm socket here there are 2 bolts to undo

[Image: 06_zps8e16d88e.jpg]

[Image: 07_zps233086e8.jpg]

Now you have a bit of room there is a metal clip holding a bit of trim on use a tool and get it in-between the two and prise them apart.
*You might be able to do without taking the 7mm bolts out but I found it quicker this way*

[Image: 08_zpsfe41513e.jpg]

Once you have it starting to come apart then just give it a good hard pull and the other end will follow

[Image: 09_zpsbfe6c896.jpg]

Remove the rest of the trim and replace the two 7mm Bolts you removed.

Fitting the bracket is simple there is a metal holder that the bracket sits over

[Image: 11_zps3c7e976b.jpg]

[Image: 12_zps9f5f6852.jpg]

Bracket in place

[Image: 13_zps84ecf328.jpg]

then put the bolt in

[Image: 14_zps2d648544.jpg]

Then fit the new piece of trim

[Image: 15_zpsa5890aed.jpg]

fit the bracket cover

[Image: 16_zps106dc3b0.jpg]

Refit the seat belt trim

[Image: 17_zps66b43d12.jpg]

Repeat for the other side.

Once you've done the other side fit the rear trim

[Image: 18_zpsc44ec7e0.jpg]

Fitting the flex floor is an ass and will take two people, sorry not many pics of this.

you have to use a lot of pressure to get the pins to clip in then you use the bracket and screw to hold it in place

In and fitted

Mine is in the best place I can think of, in the loft. It was the first mod I did to my car after I bought it. I can't see the point in such a useless bit of extra weight to add to anyone's car. It takes up too much room in the boot. Laying it flat at any height it reduces the useful height of the boot. Folded it reduces the useful depth of the boot. If flat in the bottom setting there is not enough height to use the supermarket carrier bag hangers properly. If the floor is folded you can’t use the hangers nearest to the front of the car. It would have been better if the fold in the base board had been the other way, so you could have lifted up the rear flap part to gain access to a space under the raised boot flexi floor, as it is if you wanted to get into this space you need to unload the whole boot to do so. Also the space between the side panel and the boot metal side is far to big, an extra 1.5" on either side would have made it a lot easier to get my grandson's pushchair in without it being on an angle across the boot.

VX never thought that lot out, did they?

I close my case. Haha

Lol, it is one one of them marmite options.

and I must say I love it, I have my towing bar, warning triangle, Wheel tool kit, coat & umbrella under it and I have it on the middle setting.

Shopping very rare I seem to do that the wife does it then comes home moaning her 206 isn't big enough (haha stops her spending money once she's filled the little boot and back seat)..

I have the flex floor and I have to agree it could have been better designed it does take up a lot of space I would like to remove it in all honesty.
