can any one tell me how to remove the rear door trim? ive removed the screw and the arm rest grab handle bit and the screw behind the inner door handle and pulled it out of all the trim clips but it seems to be stuck still around the window switch/inner door handle area and i cant figure out what still needs to be disconnected or pulled off or whatever. i want to check the door lock becaue it doesnt work with the central locking.
also the remote central locking is only working sporadically any tips on what to check?

Typically, there are a few hidden screws right on the arm rest/grab handle. There may be a few hole plugs that need to be removed to access the screws.
After all of the screws are removed, pull the panel away from the door slightly to release it from the push pins, then lift up slightly and it should come off.
There is some hidden screws behind little covers on your door. At the handle, and the pull/arm rest, and the bottom corner. You'll find it easier to pop the mirror trim cover off too. Once all the screws are out, and you removed the inside handle, just grab the lower pocket and give her a firm pull, it should pop loose with minimal effort. Then lift it upward, and remove. (you'll need to unplug the wiring from it to take it completely off.

This is the same front or rear door. 1. remove rubber insert at the bottom of the arm rest/door handle 2. remove the 2. philip head screws. 3. run hand along bottom edge of door panel to ensure no other securing screws. 4. starting at the top rear edge of the door panel side a large flat screw drive/door panel tool(what ever you have) 5. lift sharply and you will here poping noises fromt the push clips lifting out of the socket. 6. as you work down the rear edge of the door panel you will see the trim around the interior door handle lift away. remove it. 7. the interior door handle will remain on the door. 8. remove the rest of the door panel.
mmmm from what i can recall 2 screws in arm rest (two small holes underneath arm rest hides the screws)take these out also one in door handle trim behind handle, And the window winder if you look close in the gap between window winder and door trim you should be able to see a curbed metal pin this holds winder in place so to remove it get a knife ( thin blade will fit in between winder and trim) and push on the end bit of the metal pin and it should spring off and then door handle can be removed.
After this run your hands around door trim gently pulling around all edges ect this will pull door trim away from supports
Remove the phillips screw that holds the door handle trim piece (under the door handle)
Remove the phillips screw at the upper front under the small round trim cap. Pry gently around all sides of the cap, prying a little more each time.
Remove the arm rest by forcing it up with a screw driver. Start with the end towards the front of the car. Start prying at the front edge and next to the door panel. The arm rest has two clips (one at front edge and one about three inches back. Once the two clips are loose the arm rest flips towards you which unhooks the back two prongs.
Pry off the control panel. This trim piece has a metal clip that you need to press from the front edge. There is a small indent to allow a small screwdriver. Don't use a screw driver! Use a thin putty knife, but a scredriver will work. There is a lip that the knife will catch on and release the trim. The back of the trim has a fixed clip, so unless you release the front clip it ain't gonna budge! Then unplug the attached wires.
Now remove the 2 screws that appeared once the arm rest is off. I think that's all the screws. Pry the bottom of the panel away from the door starting at the bottom back corner (you will feel where there is resistance) and the plastic retaining clips will pop loose one after the other.
Your panel should now be completely loose on both sides and the bottom, held on only by the top lip (that is supposed to lift off) and the door handle trim
The door handle trim is a little tricky but once you know its not that hard. First of all its held it place by two clips. One is directory over the lock switch and one directly under it. Carefully pry underneath the trim in both of these location and twist the screwdriver to pop off the clips. There is still a hook clip nearer the front of the trim so to pull off the trim you have to kind of pop out the two clips while pulling towards the rear of the car since the hook clips slides out towards the rear.
Once that is off its just a matter of lifting the whole panel up until it unhooks from the top of the door.

1. Remove the philips screw in the plastic trim by the mirror and remove the trim piece. 2. Using a flat blade screw driver gently pry up the front of the panel holding the window and door lock switches. This pulls the assembly out of the spring clamp. Pull it up and forward to remove it from the arm rest. 3. Remove the two philips screws holding the switches to the trim piece. 4. Find the two screws holding the arm rest. They're at the junction of the arm rest and the switch assembly. Only the one going into the door needs to be removed. 5. Gently pry the trim piece from the door handle. There are two spring clamps, one in the front and one in the rear of this plastic piece. 6. There is a hidden phillips screw that needs to be removed. It's located at the inside bottom rear corner of the door panel. It's hidden in the carpet trim.
After this last screw is removed the door panel can be lifted straight up and off. Feed the cable harness through the hole and your're done.
