Removing ED Fairmont Door Trims

I have done this before on a EBII Gli but remember it being hard to get the trim off the door at the top near the glass.

Now, I had a quick stab at it on my ED and found that it too was seemingly 'cliiped' down at the top of the door trim near the glass.

What is it that holds the trim down once all the screws are removed from the trim, lock/handle and power windows box (Drivers side)?

I am wanting to see if I can fit my 6.5" alpine splits in...

Thats my problem, it doesn't slide up, its hooked at the top and I don't know how!

It lifts right out though, sorta hinging from the top.

this is where the trim is getting stuck - is it clipped?

just grab it and yank it, the clips are hard.

Nice sketch.

As jbolger says, just yank it, but use finesse. It's all in the technique.

I think it is the lock button thingy (EAII onwards) that holds it down, because the button doesnt just slide out like older cars, it is actually fixed to the door trim.

Just my thoughts.

OK i had the same problem. With the locking putting get a cloth and a pair of muti grips. put the multi grips on the button grip over the top with the multi grips and yank it out..... trust me. and if you having trouble with the door trims..... wind the window down and wedge a screwdiver between the clip and the metal of the door and wedge them out a little. then slide up.l.. i had the exact problem... it was being a bitch ... but you will get there
