    How do I remove the interior door panel. I've ordered some replacement speakers without looking at how to get at the stock speaker. All I have been able to uncover is 2 x torx screws, one under the lock release handle and one lower down by the corner of the door.
    I've hunted high and low looking for a guide without sucess and the last thing I want to do is attack it blind and end up damaging the leather.

    Thanks.

    Ive done this on my E46 Compact

    torx all round..

    -1 lower left of the door panel
    -1 behind the 'AIRBAG' logo
    -1 lower right of the door panel
    -2 in the door handle (have to remove the trim first, should pop out with flat headed screwdriver)

    think thats it from memory

    then its just a case of getting your fingers between the door panel and the actual door and starting from the bottom... popping the panel off. then disconnect the door handle trigger and your done
