Hi,the door card is what covers the door from the inside,or i guess you could call it the door trim,

The Vacuum pipe it a rubbery plastic pipe that runs to the actuator that is attached to the door lock mechanism and when you press your remote it triggers a vacuum in that pipe and that in turn triggers the lock to open

Hope that helps Donald
