    Hi, if it's the same the as an A3, then you remove the single screw holding the cover in the inside door handle, behind there is one or two more screws, remove these. Then there is another couple, one on each end of the door card, at the top, one by the hinge and the other by the lock. once removed the door card can be lifted up and off. keeping in mind the wires etc.

    If it's not the same as an A3 then please ignore!:sorry:

    2 screws either end at top, 1 screw in middle (i presume these are the 3 you've found) then wriggle/pull plastic grab handle and there will be another 2 screws, once undone lift whole panel up. bob's ur uncle!

    remember you need to lift a bit before pulling it out.. its not a straight clip on like bmw etc.
