ive managed to get them off now, they push inwards and pop off. I was hoping to take the dorr latch out and replace it but i still cant get to it, looks like i have to drill some rivits out to get the inner panel off, so i give up now im going to have to take it somewhere to be done

Hope this helps, You can find a disassemble kit like the one they use on ebay or dealextreme for a few pounds, you you could use a thin plastic blade, or metal blade, just be careful not to scratch your car :)

as an example you could try and buy this : http://www.dealextreme.com/p/professional-repair-tool-kit-for-car-audio-system-8-piece-82033
