It's quite simple, if any plastic clip is broken, they can be replaced at a very low price, maybe one or two clips couls be broken, just do it very slow when pulling out the panel, then lift up to completely remove it.
I need some help. I tried to remove right door panel cause it creaks all the time when I try to open the door which is quite annoying and embarassing when somebody passes by at the same time I hear as if passing by next to a old russian car when actually it's MB slk. So when I tried to remove the door panel (in accordance with the german manual) I did everything they showed (cause I don't understand everything which is written there) I stopped at a point where all plastic clips are unclipped and that's it. The upper part of the door panel seems to be "glued" next to window and I can't find anything which still holds the door panel. I tried to lift and pull it as somebody described but it won't move. I don't to use excessive power cause I have the impression I might break something. What exactly should I do when the loud speaker is taken way, plastic clips are unclipped and the screw under this silver plasic is also unscrewed ? I would be grateful is somebody who acutally did it could say what I should do next. Also if you have some more detailed pics that would probably help too.
I found this video footage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thAVY-3Ye6g . Is it similar to slk door panel removal ? As I wrote previously something between upper door panel and window is preventing me from taking it off. In video it seems as it there were some plastic clips in this area ? are there any ?
