2 torx screws under handle you pull the door to close it (pry plastic cover at lowest point from underneath with small flathead screwdriver - it pops off, and behind it are the two torx screws.)
3 phillips screws at bottom of door
1 screw for plastic speaker cover, 4 screws for speaker
Then starting from bottom pry plastic cover off with small flathead sliding it to where you feel the clip is an then with a little pressure pop out the plastic clip, or special tool if you've got it, all the way to the top on both sides, then lift entire panel upwards.
this should work, most benz always have 1 screw for the mirror hiding behind the door panelling , if this does not help let me know and i will for sure opt out and see if another expert can help. Lou. Keep in mind that rating me does not end the chat, it simply credits me for assisting, i will still be here to help if follow up information is needed , Lou.

Hi The trim I am concerned with is only on the door front window pillar, I do not need to remove the panel on the inside of the door itself. There are 3 torx fixing screws for the wing mirror, 2 are immediately accessible as there is no cover on them, but the third is under a trim panel that is on the front window pillar of the door. It just want to remove this piece of trim. Can you help with that?Thanks

Oh ok. Usually the top pops out and then the whole thing slides up. Most times depending on age the clip or tab that holds the triangle trim breaks. So you want to pry it very carefully. So pry from the top with a flat tool to not scratch anything and then when it pops , pull it upward. Hopefully I am correct. Lou
