Hi all,
I've had this issue once before (but solved it by pushing) and now it occured on Monday again:
I had some vibrations in the car when I noticed the door trim getting loose in the front (again). It's loose just below the speaker at the door.
This time pressing it back on did not help unfortunately.

Basically my question is: Will I have to remove the whole thing or this there some tweak for this? It's really annoying since it sometimes vibrates loudly.
If I had to remove it, I guess there are some nice instructions on YouTube.
I just hope I won't have to replace it - If in doubt: Duct tape

if you're talking about the wood trim piece that's on the door:

1.To take it off, you have to some how, pop it open (slightly) at the bottom, once you done that push it upwards

2.Our cars are old, so any cheap plastic will or is already broken and brittle, there are some slots at the top, that will break or is already broken that connect to a metal square knob piece...

3. when I wrapped my trim pieces, every single piece broke off or was broken, so when I installed them back, all I did was some some strong super glue (gel kind) and they stuck back on perfectly...

NOTE: if you decide to use super glue, dont use the reg kind, because it drys up too fast, the gel will seep in the grooves where you missed and stick

Actually that piece also is loose but I'm referring to the whole thing.
So basically the whole cover on the door.

Thanks for your tip though, I'll need it soon enough :D

Thanks for giving the correct term.
Always hard to find the right term and then translating it :p

It seems I'll have to remove it completely to get it fixed properly.
