Hi,

We need to remove some of our rads to repair a crack that starts above and then runs down behind them (which the previously house owner kindly left for us to sort out).

I know that most rads once all the prep. work is done should just sort of lift off and back but our fixings appear different.
Our house was built circa 1985 so not, you would think, likely to have fixing brackets that different from the norm.
What we have though is a spring on the brackets and to be honest we can't fathom exactly how they (the rads) come off.
I have added some photos to hopefully illustrate what we have.
Amy help gratefully received.

Thanks

Rob

Hi Eric,

The originals were too small but I have re-done them and they are visible (to me) now in the post. Do you mind trying again.

Thanks
