    There's a few ways, the easiest is to just slide them off, open the doors and give em a good shove towards the front of the door, then shove em back and forth and eventually they'll slide off. For the one on the rear quarter panel, give it a shove toward the back of the car and slide back and forth till it comes off.

    The chances are you'll break a few clips, but it's to be expected.

    The Haynes way is to take the door cards off and remove a screw on the inside, but as has been proven many times, it's not necessary.

    The official prefered method is to slide them off - as quoted on Vauxhall's very own TIS.
