Sorry, can't help you. I've asked the same question on this forum before as I have a dent on the driver's door and a little push with a thumb from the other side would do the trick. Unfortunately no one has replied and I'm afraid of bustin things by yanking them too hard! Ah well, let's hope someone, somewhere is reading this and can offer some advice.

Remove door panel


You have to remove the internal covers from the plastic tags with a small screwdriver then undo the screws. Once all the screws are removed (and the mirror adjuster cover (just pulls off)) feel under the bottom of the door for a slight recess you can just get your fingers in and gently pull away from door. Then you'll have to feed the door handle through the gap and lift the panel from the window lip.

Hope this makes sense. Seems a scary process at first but is really quite simple. I had all four off my wifes 1.0 whilst fitting a Hawke remote locking upgrade.

Good luck
