    STUCK - Step 5 removing door card

    Following Ffoeg's How to in the technical section I get through stage 4 successfully in removing my door card. I get stuck on stage 5.
    The strip is remaining on the vehicle and the card comes off a metal clip at the front near the door mirror. I expect there to be a number of metal clips just like the first along the bottom of the window, but I cannot get any further than this first clip!!


    Suggestions please!

    Thanks
    James

    Not sure what the problem is as there shouldn't be any metal clips in the equation.

    All you need to to is pull the rubber weather seal (with door card still attached) straight upwards off the door skin. winding the window down helps

    The weather seal attaches to the door card with metal clips, you have probably seperated this somehow, no big deal, just try and removing it as it is by pulling the door card out at the bottom and pushing up, I find it easier sometimes to reach my hand up behind the door card and push the weather seal from the inside.

    Once you have it all off it should be easy enough to figure out how to put the weather strip back onto the door card.
