I want to see what is going on with my power window as it gets stuck and tilts when i wind up the window. i have removed all the screws for the front driver side door and was wondering how to remove the door trim to see inside. is there a certain way to remove it as it seems to be stuck for some reason.

Cheers for any help. :idea:

It pops out from the top of the trim there are clips that hold it down sometimes there a bit of a b**ch to pop off once you have done that you need to pull the trim down so the lock pops above the trim and you have to unscrew it then the door trim should be free apart from a few plugs. Hope this helps if not do a search there is heaps of stuff on here about pulling them off. :D

Just make sure you have the window down when you try to remove the trim.

agreed, I didn't see any difference myself, my best guess is if the wrong piece comes up with the door trim you might scrath your window.

Just seems to make it easier to get the top of the trim away from the door.
