This How to will teach you how to disassemble a VE/WM Door Card

Using the Stanley Knife Cut off the insulation on the back of the Door Card, it is only glued on there are 5 glue circles that should be visible on the insulation cut them and it will come free.

Next locate all the screw's and use the T20 Torx Key to remove them, there should be 2 around the door handle and 5 opposite the arm rest, WM have pockets that open and have an additional 5 screw's.

Step 2
This Next Part is Tricky the Front Door Card's Are built with 3 section's: 1 Armrest, Speaker and Handle Backing, 2 Air Vent Mounting, 3 Door Card Spare Pocket.
Locate These circular Plastic's to each section you want to remove:

Then use the Stanley Knife to remove just the tops off and then the section should come free like so:

Please Note: During this step not all the plastic circles are formed perfect during assembly to use the Stanley Knife and i found alternating between the Medium and Tiny Flat Head screwdrivers, Also the WM Wood Grain plastic tops are harder to remove they are a brown color.

Re-Assembly
To Re-Assemble place Removed Sections back onto the frame of the Door Card then using a Hot Glue Gun Re-Form each of the round plastic top's you took off, Replace the Screws to the Door Handle and Arm Rest, WM Have pockets that open wich also have screw's in , Then Re-Glue the Insulation Back on with the Hot Glue Gun.

Please Note The Re-Assembly Pictures Will Be Added after i have my door cards armrest backing professionally embroided in red diamonds on black leather i don't know how long its December so no promises until January.

When i took my door cards apart to recover them i used a 10 mm drill bit to remove the top off the plastic welds. I used small screws with washers to replace the plastic welds. Didn’t
