    thanks for replying so quick,
    i have tried this but it still does not want to move, is it a case of yanking it straight up? how do those metal clips work that run along the top edge

    As said above, hold the door card firmly and lift it straight up and give it a little wiggle side to side and it should go.

    also try putting a flat blade screwdriver underneath to assist you to lift the door card upwards

    What I find works a treat is once you've pulled the door card off the retaining plugs and all that is holding it on is the channel on the top of the door - take a small hammer and put the end of the handle inside the door card up against the top of the door card, give it a couple of jabs with the heel of your hand on the hammer head and the card will pop up.

    Hope I explained that well enough.
