    I didn't think that the part you have circled in red (the bit around the window switch) could be removed. Sorry I couldn't be any help.

    Cheers scottie .. I ended up taking off my door card .. and yes there are 7 screws which hold the armrest and the windows switch trim .. The whole thing came off and the trim comes in two part attatched to eachother with another screw .. very very easy .. Thanks for help.

    You beat me too it.

    Had the door card off today, and you are correct. Lots of screws hold it in :)

    I'm assuming that Sal is planning to fit parts that aren't the standard door trim!
