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!

Question Re: More re w210 Rear Door panel Removal

Good evening. It's April 11, 2003 5:35pm.

I just now read your notes below and if you're able to reply, Thanks! I have a question. It concerns exactly what your notes describe below.

I am in the process of removing the rear left door panel. I've started with removing the 3 screws, lock cap and bottom door-light connection. Now I need to pry the door cover from the the door starting from the bottom edge. Did you use a special tool to pry the plastic plugs behind the door liner as you pulled the liner from the door?

Again, Thanks! in advance for any reply.

V. Gonzalez

Removal of Door Trim Panel

Mr. Gonzalez,

As I remember, I ran a small putty knife in between the door and the panel to locate the fasteners and then used my fingers to pull out near the fasteners. Start alon the bottom edge and work uyour way up the sides. I would recommend not prying with a tool other than fingers as there is a plastic film between the door frame and the panel. Once the door panel is off, you can pull the film loose and roll it up like a scroll. I could'nt take it all the way off because the loudspeaker was rivited in on top of it, but I could get it out of the way. I drove my car without the panel and with the film rolled up for several days until Phil sent me the new parts.
To keep the windo up, I wedged in some of the little suction devices that people use to hang things on glass. They look like the ends of the suction darts our dart guns shot when were kids.
If you use the heavy rivets supplied with the parts, you will need a really heavy duty pop-riviet gun. Just take your time. You can do this job.
