    tthe different steps to removing the trim are

    1.
    Front Door Remote Inner Handle
    Assembly
    Remove
    1 Prise off the remote inner handle bolt finisher cap (1).
    2 Remove the screw (2) attaching the remote inner
    handle assembly (3) to the trim panel.
    3 Remove the remote inne r handle assembly in a
    forward direction and unhook the remote control
    rod (4) from the handle assembly.

    Reinstall
    Re installation of the front door remote inner handle assembly is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the
    following:
    1 Ensure the remote inner handle assembly and t he remote control rod are engaged before final fitment.
    2 Tighten the remote inner handle assembly attaching screw to the correct torque specification.

    2.
    Remove inner door opener and locking knob
    1 As required, remove the remote inner handle assembly, refer to 2.3 Front Door Remote Inner Handle Assembly.
    2 Insert a small flat bladed screwdriver or scribe (1) in
    the slot (2) below the red locking insert (3).
    3 Gently prise the red locking insert from the locking rod
    knob (4), taking care not to damage the knob.
    4 Lift-up the locking rod knob to separate it from the
    locking rod (5) and remove.
    5 Remove the screw (6) attaching the locking rod knob
    escutcheon (7) to the inner panel assembly and
    remove the escutcheon.

    6 Through the remote inner handle assembly
    aperture (1), remove the screw (2) attaching the trim
    panel assembly to the inner panel assembly.

    7 Gently prise the front edge of the window defogger
    outlet (1) and remove to the rear.

    assembly to the inner panel assembly.
    Take care while removing the trim panel
    assembly as the wiring harness connectors
    are still connected.
    9 Lift the top of the trim panel assembly, up and out of
    the door inner channel.
    10 While supporting the trim panel assembly, disconnect
    all the wiring harness connectors.
