    Thumbs Down Window winding me up

    Hey folks, having a bit of a central locking issue here.

    Drivers door pin wont pop open or lock.

    Followed the HOW TO on getting the door card off and 95% there. Only issue is the HOW TO is for electric window models, where as mine is manual window. Anyone any idea on how to remove the manual winder?
    Its the only thing holding the door card on and i dont want to break it.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, i have searched.

    Thanks in advance

    Get a tea towel or old rag fo some sort and push the door card back and slot the rag inbetween door card and window winder, then turn the rag around and you should release a horse shoe shape clip what is holding it on, Thats how i got mine off just becareful not to lose the clip as they dont spring out lol.

    i would of thought so, Cant imagine them to do them different just because the cars got 2 less doors.

    You put the rag between the door card and window winder, Dont need to split anything of the winder.

    Cheers SQ Man for the pic, that shed some light to it.

    Cheers Leon/1.7CDTI for the info too.

    Seems the door popper thing is away so il need to replace. Managed to get the door locking and unlocking with the key tho so no more hopping over the gear stick at the forecourt lol

    There is a sprung clip between the handle and door card.

    You can buy the proper tool:


    Or get a bit of rag and slide it up behind the handle so it pops the clip off:

    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
