Wanting to respray them and also add a courtesy light to the keyhole on my courtesy lights circuit so that when i press unlock the light come on either under the handle (like on my interior) or around the drivers keyhole.

Do the trims need to come off?

Cheers.

Yep, then two 10mm bolts hold it on. Make sure the window is up. The rear is a little tricky to get the back nut off.

lol the rear is a C***.
ford decided to rivet a metal plate in front of the passenger side rear and the latch for the actually door is in the way of the rear bolt anyway
good one guys

I'll let you know about the rear door. Going to have a go at it tomorrow hopefully.

Had a look at the rear today, has anyone actually successfully taken it off?
