This article will cover how to remove the front door trim on the Ford Focus 2.
You will need a flat screwdriver, a long head on «8» and a TORX T25 key (asterisk) for that It is also advisable to take in advance the pliers, which are useful for pulling the caps from the metal, which will remain in the metal when removing the plating.
For the beginning, first of all you need to remove the protective grid of dynamics, before that, do not forget to lower the glass.
Grid is required to pull on.
It is attached only to the latches. Now we take the key TORX T25, and they unscrew the fastening screw.
Getting to the removal of the outer sealing.
We try not to damage the brackets, you need to work with them carefully, as the brackets can be easily lost, the triangle of the dynamic needs to be removed. If you do everything neatly and the brackets are not lost, then you can put them back. Next, a flat screwdriver must be gently shoved into the slot of the armrest.
After the screwdriver you need to lift up, and the lower part of the armrest you need to pull over.
We take the head on the «8» and begin to unscrew the two bolts, which are attached to the trim.
All connectors must be disconnected.
Now, carefully, trying not to damage the trim, we are trying to pick up the edging of the door opening handle.
As you hook, slowly pull at yourself.
Until the edging is released from the gearing.
As soon as it comes out, it must be pulled forward from the handle. Now you need to pull the trim for the selected hole towards you, until the corner has moved.
You will need to hear clicks of the caps that go out of gearing.
If some caps are left in the metal…
…they must be pulled out with pliers.
This is how the piston looks like before installation into the casing;
such a piston will easily enter the metal hole. Before you put the trim back, you need to insert the missing caps into the trim…
…everything is assembled in reverse order.
