Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows the easiest way to get the door panels off a ba.

I have removed all screws, including the ones in the grab handles, given the door panel a good pull, but to no avail.

Are there press clips in certain positions that I need to get to? Or is there something I am missing?

Any help will be much appreciated!

Cheers,
MaTTe

theres 2 or 3 screws behind caps at the bottom, 2 inside the pull handle, u need to remove the open handle, one on the front edge and one on the back edge and it shoul pop off. there are still clips hold it in place so it can sometimes need a little force to get it off. best to start from the bottom rear corner ive found.,

cheers bro! much appreciated! the door panel was a bit of a b**ch but it came off with a bit of force, the bottom rear corner was the key to removal!

I had my power window s**t itself yesterday, sounded like rocks were stuck in the mechanism. Turned out the cable that runs over the pulley to lift and lower the window sheered off a few strands then wrapped the strands around various parts of the mechanism. Thus jamming the window in the down position.

I just gutted the door, and will find the car a new window mech tomorro.

Thanks again, just needed to know I was on the right path!

Happy motoring champ!
