hey, my rear left exterior door handle has packed it in. I'm hoping its just a case of some wd40, however i cant get the door trim off to get into the thing. Ive removed all the screws, and the rear quarterglass surround but it still feels like its sdtuck right in, anyone know where to from here?

EDIT** didnt read first post properly....... did you remove the screws in the door grip? and inner handle?

The Rear Door trims are much easier to dismantle, compared to the Front doors, so it is recommended that you first attempt the dismantle the Rear Doors First, so as you get an idea of what problems you may face when attempting the Front door trims.

1 - Remove the Rear Quarter window plastic Trim.

2 - (Power Window Models) Remove the 2 Plastic Plugs used to cover the Arm Rest Screws, and Remove the 2 Screws.
3 - (Non Power Window Models) Remove the Screw used for fix the Arm Rest Handle.
4 - Remove the Plastic Screw Cover on the Door Handle, and remove the Screw.
5 - Disengage the Door Handle Control Rod, by Pulling the Door Handle out a little bit, and pulling the control rod out of the Plastic Sleeve.
6 - Remove the 8 Coloured Coded Screws on the perimeter of the Door Trim.
7 - Lift the Door Trim in an Upwards direction, to Unlock the Trim from the Door Frame. (There are 3 Clips that hold the Door trim in place, at the top, near the window sill).
8 - Remove the Door Trim, Taking care not to Scratch the Window if you have Tinted windows.
9 - Remove the Rubber Sound Proofing Door Trim
