Re: removing door trim??

I think you have an EAto ED model so...
-Obviously, unscrew the 3 screws inside the door handle and take the door handle off (twist and turn to gte it off the bent metal rod)
-remove the window winder screw and take that off
-remove ALL screws from around the outer edge of the door trim
-grab the door trim from the bottom and pull it away from the door
It will grab up the top because of that black rubber window guide that clicks over the door panel. that will come off with your door trim, just pull upwards from the outer side of it...
Oh, and remove (carefully) the plastic shroud around the door lock cos that will grab the actual lock.

Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you. Not anymore.

Re: removing door trim??

If you can do the speaker change with the door trim still attached at the top (by the window guide) then do it..
(ie; pull it out from the bottom kind of like a hinged door)
the door trims are pretty hard to click right back down.

Re: removing door trim??

Same here for an ED Falcon but rear drivers door.
I was told to GRAB the door trim from the bottom and REALLY PULL it OUT and UP HARD away from the door. I'm worried I will snap the door trim or bend it.
I hate being rough !!!

Re: removing door trim??

Apparently the door trim has a hook style top so up supposed to lever the trim out to a 30 degree angle and then lift up. Just don't be rough and break it. I will try tonight.

Re: removing door trim??

i took all the screw out then grabbed it on both sides of the trim near the top and just pulled it up...came straight off

easy as that

learnt the hard way though and broke one of me buttons on the lock...the thing that goes into it...the red plastic thing that pushes the button up
