Door panel removal?

1996 A6 Quattro

I want to remove the front door panels but have run into a problem.

I removed the REAR door panels by removing the 2 screws in the grab handle and 2 screws at each end (at the top) of the panel. I was then able to slide the panel upward to disengage it from the door. Very easy actually.

NOW I have removed the same screws from the FRONT panel but can not slide the panel up to disengage it. I am afraid to put much more pressure on it for fear of breaking something. It feels as thought there is another screw somewhere that I'm not finding.

Any thoughts on this one?

Thanks in advance,

You've done everything right so far but are missing the last screw. It's hidden behind the inner door handle. Slide the handle forward and take it out. Disconnest the door release cable and remove the handle - you'll then find the last screw.

Good luck.
