More re w210 Rear Door panel Removal
Just took mine off (driver's side) tonight. I have E320 made in May '97. Once the three screws are out ( one from the latch guide on the edge of the door, one thru the hole behind the plug under the arm rest and one behind the plasric trim berhind the unlatching handle), I was able to pop the fasteners loose along the bottom and then the side. Mine pop traight out - no liftingup like some others have on their cars. Hardest part was getting the panel unfastened from the trough at the top. I stuck my hand up behind the panel and pushed up from inside, starting at edge by fixed pane. Now have to find regulator and rivets!
