    Hello All,
    Im trying to remove my existing bath panel which has been there since we moved in but it just will not budge!! There are no screws to speak of or nails but there seems to be something preventing it being removed....ive tried to lever a screwdriver between the bath and the panel to prise it away but that caused irepairable damage to it so will now need to be replaced.....please see pictures!!
    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    You need to lever it away from the bottom as it go up under the lip of the bath.

    Hi , I'd already tried levering from the bottom but couldn't find anything suitable that could pull it away....what do you think I could use?

    This seems a very easy task but its doing my head in !

    Thanks

    Screw a piece of wood (2x1) into the bottom of the panel approx, 150mm high up and approx. 300mm long and use it as a handle.

    Looks like noticeable damage to the lip of the bath as well...

    Cheers

    drill a 25mm hole into it, you can then get your finger in to pull.

    Although its likely that its stuck with silicone or screwed\nailed somewhere
