Question Removing Radiator Side and Top Panels for Cleaning

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".

Try the Plumbcenter, they will have to order them for you, as not a stock item(to many size's) .Measure your size req.
Having a Powerflush, check your fitter spends a min of 4/5 hours doing it. My last one on the 05/10/13 took 8 hrs( dam 10mm micro)
