Re: VW Passat 1.8T 1999
Do you mean at the bottom edge of the door? If so, open the door and down in the lower front corner on the inside you'll see a screw. Take that out - it's the locating screw for the trim piece. Then from the outside, slide the lower trim piece rearward to disengage its mounting clips, and it should come off in your hands.
