Hello Shantal. I'm surprised that it's taking so long to get an answer. Internal door trim panels are removed to get access to the window switch, window mechanism and motor, glass, speaker, bodywork repairs etc so it's not that uncommon an event. I do still require an answer as it's awkward not being able the open and close my window.

All I can find is a single screw at the hinge end of the door about half way down. I'm reluctant to take pot luck by removing the screw and then trying to prise the various sections of the trim off with a screwdriver as if I chose the wrong place I could snap of a retaining clip or cause damage.

Someone from a paint shop or bodywork repair department should know the correct procedure.
