Interior problem
2005 Land Rover Freelander 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 60,000 miles

Can anyone please help with instructions as how to remove the door trim on one of the rear passenger doors. I believe this is different from the first model of the Freelander. My own car is the updated model 2005.
I want to remove the electric window regulator but cant see where to start dismantling the trim and dont want to break anything.
Thanks for any assistance
