    How to remove drivers door card

    Looks like I might have a lazy locking motor, or the mechanism is tight. Either way, door card has to come off.

    Anyone got a guide for how to remove it please?

    The internal trim on the drivers door, so I can access the door lock mechanism and motor.

    Ah ok - Most of them once all screws are removed (including hidden screws) they lift out of slots. So up and out. You could go on ebay and ask someone selling one how to do it they will usually send you a quick primer.

    Any useful answers to this query, or has nobody ever removed the doorcard on one of these.

    I've got the screw behind internal handle, and the 2 screws under the main pull handle, and disconnected the drivers switch pack.

    The part I'm currently stuck at is removing the fake wood trim.

    Guess no ones removed one Jaime - plenty of info re door card removal on the X350 section, as well as other tech solutions.
    Perhaps the X351 is not yet old enough for a lot of DIY.

    It astounds me that seemingly nobody would consider DIY on an out of warranty car, and would rather trust to a dealer... ...and you and I both know that virtually all dealers are universally bordering on the incompitent, irrespective of marque.

    Granted, service history might need to be kept up for resale purposes, but the only way to know if jobs are carried out properly is to do them yourself.

    If you could get hold of a workshop manual for the car I'd be all over doing most jobs. But without it, I'm not going to chance doing damage to my pride and joy just to save a few quid. I'm sure that's why most wouldn't just start hacking away to get a door panel off without knowing where all the fixings are.
