How to remove door card on MX5 (2002)

Hi
I need to replace the door mirror (drivers side) on my Mazda MX5 Mk 2.5 (2002). I understand I need to remove the door card but without any instructions I'm worried I might wreck it.
Why is there no workshop manual for the Mk2 and beyond???
Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions on how to do this,please.
All help gratefully received.

Get a trim removal tool to use in pulling the door panel off. You will have to remove the screws under the arm rest as you find them. I would start at the bottom of the door and work up. You may want to assume that the work will progress better if the window is down before you begin. Mind the door handle as you remove things as the biggest complaint I've seen is that it fails to work right on the first try after getting things put back. Keep a magnet that has a telescoping arm handy to pick up things that fall to the bottom of the door. To remove window crank handles if you have them, put the trim tool behind the handle and engage the wire clip to remove it.

You do need to remove the door panel. There are numerous clips that pop out, two screws, and the screw beneath the roll down lever which can be reached by popping the knob off.

Drivers side door lock barrel fell out???


This is a common fault on A4 VAG cars (Mk 4 Golfs, Skoda Octavias, Seat Leon, Beetle, Audi TT , Audi A3) you will need to remove the door card from the inside. Repair kits are available so it may be possible to repair the lock barrel but for the effort htat is required to remove the door card I would replace the lock barrel rather than repair it.

I need to replace the passenger sid mirror on a 98


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
