I am having trouble removing the door card. I have removed the handle cover and loosened the 2 screws, electric window switch removed and the screw behind the handle together with the 2 rivets on the lower door card sides. I tried using some force but the clips simply do not let go. Can anyone help with this? does anyone have a picture of where the clips are located?

you need to remove all the screws before it comes off bud, and also in the handles to open the doors there is a little black cover remove that and you find another screw holding it in, the clips simply pull off / pop if you give it a little tug

 

sorry didnt read it properly, the clips shoudl just pull off one at a time ?

Hi thanks for the vid i have followed it and used the haynes manual but the clips are just not letting go, i used a plastic trim removal tool to make a gap then tried pulling but all I seem to be doing is bending the doorcard

Make sure the screws are definatly right out, just keep going around the bottom giving it a good pull until it unclips. I had to give mine a good yank to get it of but it's only clips so I wouldn't worry about it

You need a trim tool to pull them without breaking the card.
It looks like a cross between a crowbar and a screwdriver.

Finally managed to do it got brave and gave it a strong pull and all clips simply released luckily nothing broke. I covered the door in some sound deadening including behind the speaker and the difference is day and night, no more nasty rattles and a load more bass. Driver door got the same treatment.
