Door card removal
« on: 08 August 2019, 17:20:38 »

Hi everyone.
My 2003 2.6 estate door solenoid stopped working.the drivers door would open and lock with the key and the remote worked on the other doors so I was not going to bother getting it fixed. Then the  locking tab on the door started staying down, again no problem until I found that occasionally I could not get the door open from the inside or outside and had to get out through the passenger door. I have replaced the solenoids on other Omegas but not the facelift model. I have removed all the screws including the one under the plastic interior door lever. Do I have to take off the decorative wood finished panel. Do I have to remove the door light. On the new site I cannot get access to the advice and videos formerly available on the old site.
Can anyone help. I did manage to get the door tab up by pulling hard with pliers locked on with the window down.  I tried to release the window opening switches by levering up as was necessary on the old model and must have dis connected the switch as I cannot get the window to close and itís raining tonight!

No need to remove fake wood.  Full instructions are in Maintenece Guides section

Open the cubby door in the door card,  at top by catch you will see a plastic cover about 2inches long, prise this out and there is as screw under there, unscrew and door card will release. no need to remove light.
