Removing EB doortrim.

I'm in the process of removing the doortrim but i dont know how to remove the door lock button. Its the only thing holding the trim on.

It just pulls off, I wrapped the knob with a rag (to prevent damage) and pulled it off with a pair of pliers.

they are just caps to cover the crews underneath. They can just pop off using a knife etc. Try not to damage them, because they look crap if you do.

Not sure whether you're talking about the door lock button on the top of the trim, i.e. next to the B pillar. If so, I've taken my EA trims off without removing the button. The problem, on mine anyway, is in the way the trim fits along the top. It need to be sort of lifted up and the bottom tilted in towards the car at the same time. Also make sure the external rear view mirror trim (the triangle inside next to the A pillar) has been removed. Mine has those flat locking buttons and the trim just slides over them. Don't know if yours are the same. If you want more clearance you can pop up the plastic surround that fits on the door trim around the button, but I think they might be easy to break if you do it wrong.

I think EDXR8 is talking about the screw cover caps on the plastic insert behind the interior door handle. The best way I've found to get them out is with a sharp point, like an awl or a 2mm nail. Screwdrivers are hard to get in and more likely to do visible damage, although I always manage to leave some sort of mark.
