    Damo,

    There are 5 screws in total to remove... and job done!! One thing i did notice which was a little annoying was all the connections into the electric window buttons/lock. when i upgraded my speakers i removed the whole door card rather than letting it dangle with all the connections. The connections took a while to get out but got there in the end, makes life easier for when you want to fix in the new speakers. Let me know if you have any probs, i took some pics which i havent had time to put on the site which may help.

    All the best otherwise!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    If only the rear quarter panels were as easy to remove.

    Those metal clips are just so unnecessary there could have been a strip along the top like the front door and a couple of clips or screws along the bottom.

    I think I paid about £20 for mine, but all my stuff is snap-on.

    Like speedo says you can get them way cheaper from most motor factors/halfords etc.
