lately i have been hearing a very annoying noise/rattle from the
driver door on my 05 ford focus saloon, sounds like a ballbearing or
something round anyway is rolling around at the bottom of the door
trim/panel. There are no visible screw heads etc so anyone know how to
remove the trim/panel
many thanks for any help
Usual places to look :
1. about 4 screws along the very bottom of the inner door trim.
2. top of door pocket maybe cover by plastic trim
3. back of door release lever, again you will see a round plastic cover
4. two or three screws on the door "handle"
There will be plastic clips behind the panel holding it to the door, you
need to work from the bottom and up the sides, slipping your hand behind the
trim panel to pull the clips as near as possible to where they are located.
There will be clips along the top ege of the door, the windows edge.
You may need to remove the cover on the back of the door mirror first.
Stuck to the inside of the door will be a plasic membrane, use a sharpe
knife / scalpel and cut the adheasive around the the edge of the plastic.
you can then restick it with silicon. OR cut the plasic around the edge of
the metal work and gaffer tape it back up again.
