    Default Removing VY/VZ door trim

    Ok, i've been asked a couple of times and since i was doing mine today i thought i'd post up some pics and a rough guide to help people along.

    Tools required: small flat blade screwdriver
    Medium phillips head screwdriver
    Stubby phillips screwdriver

    1. Using your small flat blade, gently prise the red part of your doorlock towards you.At the same time pull up on the lock with your free hand until the lock slides free.Once it's out undo the screw and remove the lock trim.

    2.Still with your flat blade, pop out the screw cover on your door handle and unscrew the handle.Remove the handle, it's attatched to the rod so pull on the handle like you were opening the door and it will come free.Undo the screw behind the handle.This one is commonly missed so make sure you get it!


    3. Take the air vent off the top of the trim in the corner.It's held in by a plastic clip so gently free it by pulling it towards you. (If you break the clip don't panic, your local holden will more than likely give you one for free!)

    4. Unscrew the trim, there are 7 screws to take off.4 along the bottom, 2 on the outside and 1 on the inside, this one you'll need your stubby screwdriver to do.

    5.Your trim is almost off! Grabbing the bottom of the trim with your hand, pull it towards you so it comes away from the door.Then carefully lift the trim straight up towards the window, it should now be free.

    6. Rest the trim on something and use your flat blade to gently prise the mirror switch out of the trim.Unplug the switch and your trim is now completely free from the car!


    It should now look like this, ready to play!


    This is a guide and i take no responsibility for damage done if you're too rough or don't follow the instructions.Just take your time and you'll find it's quite easy.The guide i have supplied is based on the front drivers door with power windows.Anything that i may have missed please add it into this thread.Hope it helps.....

    Great thread Juzo! Sure to be a big assist to anyone who needs to do this. (done it myself more than I can count, but....)

    (Seeing as nobody else has replied, I thought I would....)

    As a side note, it's a very similar - if not identical - procedure for VT and VX as well, with the possible exception that you might have window winders to contend with.....

    If they're like the older models there will be a clip that you need to remove. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pop it out by sliding the screwdriver between the winder and the trim, you should be able to see it.

    Great job mate. Just spent 2 hours fixing my power window thanks to you showing us how to actually take off the door trim. Always never knew there was the door handle and then behind that the clip for the door. Oh yer and i fixed my window lol. So thanks again mate for the help.
