ok for ppl that dont know already this is for electic window trims. there is two screws at the bottom of the door under the caps,

then there is one on the side

after you have done that you need to take the plastic plate that the window switch is sitting on out so just stick a knife under it and pop it off the disconnect the wiring loom.

after that you need to take the door handle cover of it come off but needed a bit of pulling and pushing down on the clips

there is a 10 mm bolt behind that , afer that move ur eyes toward the the side of the door that the hinges are on an there will be a round plug pull that out and and there will be another 10mm bolt undo that

then just pull from the bottom and the trim will come off

I did mine when I was already in a bad mood. Started having thoughts of just ripping it off with brute force, so packed up for the night instead! Came back out in the morning, glanced at it, and realised it was those bolts!

or you could buy the tools from coventries, they arent expensive and make it easy as pie. Or call in at a dealer, most will remove for free if u ask nicely enough
