    Default door trim panel thingy...

    Hi folks, before I rip this trim strip off, does anybody know what holds it on? It's the wood effect trim on the doors, it sounds like they may be glued on, but I thought i'd ask first!! If it is glued I might just leave it alone, if it's fixings I'll change the look me thinks.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    the wood affect trim is plastic rivetted onto the door card - if you pull it off it will need glueing back on

    Thanks for the info, and that's a bit of a pain. If I took the door card off would that help any? ie get at the back of the rivets, drill the heads off etc, so that at least there was some of the body left to help locate the trim accurately, before applying some super duper glue?

    yep - you could drill em out with the door card off and then it would locate easier on refitting- you could put a small dowell into the holes to ensure they seat and locate correctly
