Thank you.

I need to take apart dials as well to fix annoying rattles. I know hot to do this. Just need time.
Also need to take apart plastic above glovebox, around vents (driver side)....

Also need to take apart door handles as they "creak" when touching... Annoying.
That one will be harder. Dont know where to start... From middle of handle bottom side or top side.
Yeah, my door handles also creak! Did you fix this issue? Also, i have noise coming from that big plastic dash part in front of the passenger seat... Also from the plastic part where is the handle that opens the door and also the panel where are the window buttons (on driver and passenger doors)...

I didn’t use double sided tape. It was a thin foam pad that was sticky on one side. I’ve marked were I put the strips. Just where the contact points would be.
How did you remove that part?? Do you have a how to or pics??

Thanks

Just use plastic trim removal tools. It’s just held down with little clips going round the trim. Just start at one end and Unclip them. Just pops up.

Start at the larger side as it slides into the door at the thin end. Trim tools will make it simple.

Thanks. Removed part yesterday. Put some "foam" around black trim.
Door handle still creaks when i am closing doors. I am guessing its trim with windows switches touching door handle.
Anybody knows how to remove this? Do i need to remove whole door card?
I dont want to break something.

I am from Portugal and i have the same problem.
Isn´t possible remove this cover because is hot glued on the inside, has no fittings.
I removed the door cover to see what the interior was like. I removed the button control and saw that the piece cannot be removed because there is another piece of it, glued on top of it. What I did was apply some silicone gel, like lubricant and improved a lot.It's a job for 2 hours.
