    Removing Radiator Side and Top Panels for Cleaning

    Removing Radiator Side and Top Panels for Cleaning 13th Oct 06 at 3:31 PM
    We installed Stelrad double radiators with factory fitted top and side panels a few months ago. I recently noticed that someone (presumably my husband) has spilt tea or coffee which has left a huge mess inside the top of the radiator.

    I cannot see how I can get to all the sticky drops without removing the top panel. Is this possible to do and then refit? I don't want to start pulling at them if I won't be able to get them back on and I can't see any screws or other fastenings. :confused:

    I think, and I only think, that the panels just pull off or sort of "unclip".
