The door cards on mine are held down with the plug/pins along the bottom edge and to get them out you need to get under them and pull them like a thumb tack or drawing pin away from the door frame. To do this you need a v-claw shape but one that spreads the load. The dealer had one of these as they do it often. I am afraid I do not have one.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

I bought these on amazon to help prying bits off. Lots of better stuff around but worth a shot at the price.

If somebody decides to dismantle the panel, please a few pics of the process.
I'd really be willing to do it (and maybe replace the speakers) but I am not so brave without a proper visual guide.

Thanks all for the responses.
Ale- can you point me to where the diagrams are located please?
Kevin - those items on Amazon look worth a punt! If not the chisel is at hand!
Thanks

Please a few pics, if you tear down the door panel!

Please excuse this - not meant in a rude manner as other people will have more experience than me. Just trying to share what I watched on mine being taken apart.

The tools you highlight are not what I would use having seen the dealers tools. They are exactly the pointy things that will rip the leather due to the pressure area compared to the force needed.

The items I watched in use were far wider to spread the load.

So looking in the Amazon pool I suspect it was the part in the top right corner with a thin cut made down from the top centre to let it straddle the pin.

Also the little pins often die on engagement so it's helpful to have some spares. Morgan wanted £3 each for them!

No offence taken Alistair. My old S1 panels have been off a few times in 20 years so they don't need much persuasion to come off! The tools you highlighted look much more substantial and I think I'll order a set for myself.

I think the SS panels will be a much different piece of kit to take off and those may be a better option for that.

My old S1 was indeed Fiesta Mk4 regulator and gubbins, but the cables were not. From memory we made up new Bowden cables and used a new Fiesta part when my passenger one failed.

Removing the door card was easy when you found the hidden screws, and access was easier in the door than I thought as well.
