Yes, but it will take a couple of hours, I'm in the middle of plumbing in a SDARS kit at the moment.

Those pictures are helpful. When I tried to pull the panel off, something in the middle of the panel (top part of door handle) prevented me to do so. Anyone can help?

So that black plastic piece was over something and you had to lift up first?

that plastic piece goes into a small hole and have to be lifted up to completely remove door panel, once you have loosen all screws.

Yup, the black plastic piece actually locked to the metal of the door panel. You need to push/lift the whole door panel up in order to remove the door panel after loosen all screws and plugs.

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 ?
