Hi Leon, I have a E34 1995 5 series and had to take door cards off. They're predominantly held on by plastic button clips around the edge/circumference of the door card HOWEVER there is a couple of screws hidden, 1 is behind the chrome door pull/lever a little round plastic cover hides it the other is behind the top of door handle maybe on yours behind door mirror electric adjuster button. one scew is philips the other Torx when pulling the card off the clips try a large flat/wide implement to prise it away as you may breaks some of the clips (£2/3 eBay) One more thing the door handle locates into a grip from behind you'll need a long screwdriver to push the tang up to release it. All the above should be well similar to your model. Oh! nearly forgot remember to unscrew/take off the door pin that goes up and down when locked/unlocked

Open the trunk. Take out the trunk lid light - take the bulb out of the fixture. Place a 12 volt battery in the trunk. Take an alligator clip jumper wire - connect one end to the negative terminal of the battery and the other end of the jumper wire to the car chassis - make sure it is a good connection and is not on a painted surface - I place mine on a bolt on the rear light panel. Take another alligator clip jumper wire and connect one end to the 12 volt positive terminal and connect the other end to the short end of the light connectors (there are two connectors for the light - one is short and one is long). This should give you enough voltage to unlock the doors. I had to figure this out and have used it twice on my BMW.

Ok here they are
They are quite straight forward all the areas are indicating either screws or clips, if they are clips then just pull the panel out towards you quite firmly.
If you have any trouble just let me know.
