Hi It is very similar to your door, mine has the waste bin mounted on the door there are 2 screws on the opening handle, then the panel must come off, do you think it is clipped on or velcro or something similar.

Mine has industrial velcro.
With mine I remove the 2 screws holding the grab handle, one screw on the door handle gear. Part remove the rubber door seal on the panel.
I use a small spatula or filler knife to prize apart the velcro sections, I think there are 4 sections. It's a bit of a fiddle getting the door handle mechanism through the panel.
5 times I've removed the panel on ours to change latch springs and the central locking solenoid.
Have fun.
Cheers
Ed

Hi Sheddy,
I got the handle off easily, but the panel itself is fixed on by the old style plastic push in buttons similar to the ones some cars have on the interior door panels line them up and bang em in, at least i can get panel on and off will get new lock tomorrow. Thanks again for your help, Cheers

Collected new door lock on the way to the old bush blues festival and was as the one in the above picture, total time to fit it 40 minutes give or take, needed a third hand to fit door panel supplied by funster Graham works a treat now, it should do it cost £71.
Thank to all for the advice.
