ummm. You hafta pull and pry, but BE GENTILE <<EDIT...errr GENTLE >>. There are plastic tab thingys holding the trim on in non-crucial points and it will take some prying/pulling to get it off. And also make sure you remove all the hidden screws (some may be behind a light/reflector, etc... but i have a 94 so it will be different... Someone with a magic book or experience on 88'* should pop in here.... HELLO!?!?

How in the WORLD could you have gotten through life without pulling your door apart? I had mine apart twice within a month of ownership (window motor failure, didnt replace it the first time, second time fixed).... Im disappointed in you....
