Thanks all done and working.
There’s also two little pop rivets that you have to be careful of that are connected to the lock assembly. Mine came apart (too much jiggling!) but easy fix with a couple of small bolts.
I just drilled out the rivets and put a couple of small nut/bolts in, just in case.@LambethBoy ... I'm in the same situation as you. I've removed the inner panel. Lots of jiggling and the large pop rivets pulled out of the plastic bracket bit. I can't see what that does. All re-assembled without the rivets. All seems to work OK, lock/unlock, both handles etc.. The plastic arm seems loose in the lock assembly anyway.... Not sure if I really need to strip it down again to install a couple of bolts.

i left it for another day and just lathered the silver panel and door card in sound deadening and some dodo matting. music sounds better, but will at some point get to the doors themselves... i presume i have to drill off the speakers... meaning i might as well upgrade them!?!?!
Yeah it’s all part of the door mechanism but does not affect it in any way, all part of assembly at factory for easy install.Awesome cheers.
What are the 2 rivets holding the skin on to? Is it the lock mechanism or something else?
I managed to get 2mm silent coat on the drivers door, and then put some more dodo matt in there, the low section is fine, but the top section I think is catching the window as it goes up.
So think I need to get it all back off and clear some runs for the mechanism.
