Latest Farish Autocoach

This is probably in the wrong place to post this, but (Short of a cold chisel and lump hammer!) does anybody know how to get into the interior of the latest Farish Autocoach, please? I would like to add a driver and some punters but can see no way of getting in.

I haven't got this model but with other recent Farish coaches the body unclips just above the solebar. The roof also generally unclips but you can't always get to the interior.

You just have to make sure that you unclip the handrails from the chassis before trying to remove the body.

The December issue of 'Model Rail' has a piece about fitting DCC in the "updated Graham Farish GWR diesel railcar". In the aricle, it says "The new GWR railcar is easy to dismantle as the body is held in place by four little pips. Ease the lower edges of the sides apart and pull the body upwards until it lifts off". (My italics). I know it is not the same, but might be of some help.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Thank you for the replies. With a lot of brute force and ignorance, I have finally managed to get it apart! There are 6 clips holding it, one each end and one in the middle between the body and solebar. Also, as Nookfield rightly says, unclip the handrails from the body. Not easy but got there eventually. Thank you again.
