Default Door trim removal

Hi does anyone know how to remove the rear passenger door trims. I was replacing my interior lights when I tried to remove the globe out of the right hand passenger door trim I grabbed the globe and as I did the fitting fell into the door behind the trim.

Steve, I don't know your modle specifically, but moist trims are similar in removal technique.

Gently explore with a good torch light in hand, look for little panels that might have a slot for a small flat screwdriver blade to lever off a cover cap, usually phillips head screw underneath holding trim handle etc . . . sometimes clips in the middle to, but more around the outside edge of the trim.
Often small screws are used at the bottom of the trim edge, take a good look.

There are special trim clip tools you can get from SCA etc, like this . . .



There are many on the market, most will do the job depending on the clip type, but basically they allow better, more even leverage to pop the clip out.
Some clips will come out with gentle hand leverage once you lift a corner of a trim.

Keep in mind, MANY clips on motor vehicles now are virtually designed to break, they want repairers / general public to have to go and purchase new ones each time !
Some aren't cheap, $3, $5, have seen guard slash liner clips at $8 each !

Once any retaining screws found are removed, start with the bottom and remove clips upwards, once trim is sort of hinged at the top it will unhook at the top and slide upwards.

Steve, I had the same issue with one of the rear doors when installing LED globes. Started looking at removal of the door trim, without success. However, was able to locate the light fitting behind the trim through the hole & pull it into position. Suggest this a option, unless tried already. Geoff
