    Default 348 Door Trim removal

    Can any of you do me a favour

    I have taken the door cards off my 348TB and am a little confused how they are fixed, I know there are plastic clips and various screws that hold some of them on etc. The area where I have a problem it the end of the door (opposite to the door hinge) are there any screws in that end??

    The parts book lists 2 alloy strips called door upper moulding and door lower moulding but I cannot for the life of me understand how this attaches to the door. Any photos of the door end may clear this up.

    Lightbulb How to get inside the door on a 348!

    I've had some problems with opening the passenger door from the inside on my car, so I decided to take a closer look at the problem today.

    And I thought it would be a good idea of taking some pics during the process, in case some of you might find it interesting
    This is how I did it, step-by-step

    The first thing I did was to remove the two strips from the outter part of the door.
    The door on the 348 has 4 different "sections/panels" - and I started by gently pulling off the lower section - the fabric.
    This section was held in place by 3 clips and no screws.

    (PS: The clips might break, so I recommend that you have some spare clips)

    STEP 3

    The door handle section was held by 3 main screws and 2 from underneath the door handle.

    Firstly unscrew the door handle and the small screw which holds the opener...
    Stick your finger under the panel and simply push out the window-lift button, and disconnect it from its socket.

    STEP 4

    Unscrew the 3 main (big) screws on this section, note that there are also 2 screws up under the door handle.

    So in total here, you need to unscrew 5 screws and no clips.

    STEP 5

    The top section is not connected at all.
    Just pull it gently off, remembering to remove the door knob first.

    STEP 6

    Remove the 2 aluminium strips and the window strip- not a MUST, but its easier to work when its removed.

    Undo the 6 small screws and the window strip can be removed.

    TAKE NOTE OF THE 2 SCREWS CIRCLED IN GREEN

    STEP 8

    The inner panel is now loose, so gently lay it down on something flat, make sure it dosent hang loose under it's own weight or it may strain the wiring.
