Howdy Folks

I've removed my door card:

I've unscrewed the 10 or so bolts around the edge of the panel

But it appears to still be held on in this corner:

Initially I believed it to be held on by the 3 pop rivet type things pictured above, however on further inspection, I can just about get my arm up behind the panel and feel directly behind the pop rivet things, and there is nothing there holding it onto the door.

So now I'm still none the wiser to whats holding the panel on, but it does really need to come off.

Google isn't much help.

I've found a really old thread asking the same question on this forum but it was never really answered either.

So does anyone now know how to remove this panel?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi, I've found this guide from the russian ford club - [url="http://dop.ru/install.php?id=show_inst&name_page=inst_ford-focus2&i_type=all&i_marka=all"]http://dop.ru/install.php?id=show_inst&name_page=inst_ford-focus2&i_type=all&i_marka=all[/url] . I hope it will help.

Cheers for that, looks like what I need

But I can't read it lol

Translating it with Word but it doesn't make much sense

Try Google translate. It is fairly good :)
Brigante
Just translated with google mate n it's still not much help on whats holding that corner in place.

The door lock is holding the panel in place.
4 screws on the lock side of the door and one under the exterior door handle.
Reading up on it i really don't recommend removing the inner panels as the window regulators are attached to it and means you'll have to remove the glass first.
Brigante
It doesn't seem to be that though as I can pull that part of the panel away from the door.

It really only seems to be the corner pictured above.

Fair one.
It's the screws on the door edge to release the lock and the one under the external handle then.
I'll scan the relevant info from my Haynes when I get time.
Brigante
Nice one. Never noticed the screw unde the exterior handle before.
