    hey,
    I am a bit stuck.
    Dont know how to take the inner insert of the doors off.
    I have loosened the window in an attempt to take the glass out and then take off the insert but without luck.
    Has it been on the forum?
    Cant find it.
    Thanks
    Alex

    It’s easier if you pull the window up out of its mount and tape it to the frame, but if you want the panel out altogether you’ll need to separate it from the lock. The easiest way to do this is to drill out those 2 little rivets near the door handle to release it. You can either rivet it back afterwards or use nut and bolts.

    Thanks! Ok so with the rivets I know thanks to you.
    Can I get away without drilling them?

    Yes but you'll need to remove the door handle and unbolt the lock mechanism so you can pull it out with the panel.

    Those are window clamp bolts aren’t they, think he’s already undone those?
