It looks like it, I'll have a look at mine tomorrow, looks like you start at the hinges and work back towards the catch. The end of the trim looks to have a little hook there.

I had my doubts there would be any difference in the door skins how they were held together between the aussie ones and overseas ones.

Interesting to see the door panel/card comes apart like that, most I've seen are one piece of plastic with trim like the material on the arm rest glued to it.

Doesn't surprise me in the least
The majority of the dash uses those clips to hold everything in
Has its good and bad points

While on the topic of those plastic trims does anyone know the colour code for them so i can repaint mine the stock colour as mine have a few scratches


Have you thought of painting them the exterior colour of your car?
Or maybe Carbon Fiber vinyl film. :D

Mine is the same pattern, wouldn't really call it CF.

I'm considering painting the trim but not sure if I should do a plasti-dip or go all in with nice glossy finish in yellow :D

Maybe if i was 20 years younger i might be interested in CF vinyl wrap.thanks for the suggestion though.

My exterior is white. Don't want it white either. Too much refelction fron the sun.
Toying with black. Might try it one day.
Still need to put some thoughts in to it

Does plasti dip come in yellow?
Try it in plasti dip yellow and try it.
If you dont like it peel it off and try a different colour. When you find a colour you like go nuts with 2pac paint and get it done
