    it might be wedged in, under the lip of the bath at the top, and pushed against a batten at the bottom. If you can pull on the bottom edge with a rubber sucker or your fingernails, it may come out.

    Some plumbers like to glue bath panels in with silicone.

    Thank you for your reply.
    I have tried levers, suckers lifting and pulling, the panel moves but will not come away from under the bath. Lol

    Why do you want to take off the panel?

    Is there a leak all the time or only when the bath is emptied?

    Check the water supply to the toilet.

    Bath leaks when it's being used and if switched on will trip fuse

    Unless you have a 2nd bathroom to use and can wait until you can get the bath panel off then that's all well and good.
    If this is your only bath then pull it off now and don't worry about damaging the panel.
