    i think theres one behind the door handle, if there isnt then i think its a case of pulling up to get it off. ive had mine on and off a few times.
    why didnt i take the blue pill......

    There are some instructions on door panel removal at the start of this guide (which then goes on to explain how to fix the problems with knackered electric windows)

    Thanks for your replies guys but:

    "Remove the screw under the door pull (circled, but not clear in my photo), pull out the cover, and remove the 2 screws underneath. The door card will now lift upwards and off. Watch out for the cables."

    I removed the door pull but there are no screws underneath, here i uploaded a pic of the door pull removed but cant find any screws inside/behind it!

    Have you removed the 2 small screws at the top of the panel on the inside edges of the door ? If yes be brave and quick tug up and away from door and the panel should lift off no problem?!? Good luck should'nt put up that much of a fight.

    Yep, you need to pull upwards and away from the door.

    First lower the window, then the 2 main screws are behind the plastic "cuff" inside the grab handle (not the grab handle itself). This cuff is held in place by a single screw. Remove this then push down on the cuff and reveal the 2 main screws. With these out pull hard upwards and then out. This is difficult to do with the window up.
