    You will need to remove all four door cards and removed the window frames with windown and mechanism and lock all in one. Is a bitfidly.

    I've removed all mine apart from the ones on the doors along the bottom of the windows. It's all pretty easy until you get to these ones.

    Speaking to someone who's had theirs painted already they said removing these properly was too much of a pita when you can just buy all four new ones for around £100. Apparently they just pulled them off from the outside (which will ruin them) then painted the new ones before refitting. Need to speak to him again about it before I give it a try.
