Hi there, and welcome.

Basically, the door is held in place with a combination of crosshead & torx - headed bolts & plastic pop-clips.

You will find the bolts in the door lever housing, and the door pull (they may be under a plastic circular cover), and there may be a couple around the edges of the door trim (check on all sides before pulling the door card).

I always start at the bottom, and firmly work my way around.

If the car has manual windows, then the lever will need undoing, these are normally held in place by a circlip.

Once you have undone all the clips, the door card should just lift up and undo the spring clips at the window.

Be careful not to damage the plastic sheeting which is underneath the card, gently peel away the mastic which holds it in place.

Refit is the reverse of the above.

Best of luck,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
