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.

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.

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.

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.
