grand espace 98 rear door

There are 8 fasteners on my door, one at each corner of the panel of which the bottom 2 are accessible with the door closed while the top 2 need the door open.

Behind the foglights in the centre of that 20mm hole there is 1 torx screw each side. If you have no screws behind the foglamps then someone else threw them away. [And that suggests a previous problem in that area, does it not]

On the TOP of the panel, just behind the lifting tabs for the sunblinds you should find 2 plastic
'buttons?'. Prise these out because the final 2 fasteners (torx20?) are about 6" down the holes now opened. These screws only need to be slackened off [DO NOT REMOVE OR YOU WILL LOSE THEM] They act as jamming cleats when tightened down.

So for you you the count is 8 but with 2 already gone from behind the foglamps

OOP! I forgot to mention that the pulling handle at the bottom nearside has to be removed but you would know that ? lol
