My model isn't quite this new so my info may be a little out of date - however, I remove the screw in the middle of the handle and the outer handle trim comes off. Then the door card has a cutout which is sufficient to lift it out without removing the entire handle.

Hope this helps,
Sherwin

Removal of interior door pannel on left rear door


Normal 0 Quite simple. Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

Need to replace the driver's door interior door opening assembly


Hi there.

The procedure is roughly the same for all mk3 x types.
You need to remove all the screws on the armrest and on the ashtray, then undo all the plastic clips using screwdrivers on the panel.

You find detailed instructions on links below, I quote:

" remove two screws at the bottom of the armrest.
pull out ash tray.
remove screw in the middle of the ash tray holder.
pull up on armrest, it should pop up, then pull it out
start at bottom right of door and start popping out the plastic clips (all the way around the door)
(remove speaker wires)
push up door panel - done"

How to remove door card on MX5 (2002)


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.
