Havig read the thread I'd rather find out myself what is wrong. I have taken off the screws at the bottom of the door, the two holding the speakers in and the one in the door handle recess but the door panel still refuses to budge. Is there any way I can get the panel off without damaging it?
I have just experienced the dreaded snapped plastic clip holding the window to the winder mechanism on my 04 30k modus. Just another sorry tale to add to the Sunroof that stopped working and is now jammed shut after I refused to pay 1500 to have it fixed, the faulty coils and the sticking petrol flap.
Man I so hate this car and it couldn't have come at a worse time - my wife visiting her mother in a coma in hospital and the window bloody breaks in the car park. Gets bloody soaked with all the rain and the 80 mph wind - needless to say she is very upset.

Anyway rant over - remove the bottom screws. Remove the screw in the door handle . Prise up the internal door closer and the plastic bit that holds the window /mirror switches. Unclip the electrical connectors Pull the top half of the door card towards you and then the rest of the door card you push upwards. Then you could slit the internal membrane near the bottom to probably find in all it's glory the broken blue plastic clip - nice piece of shoddy engineering
