door trim problems........again HHHHEEEEEELLLLPPPPPP

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).
Forum rules
Questions about the Pluriel Roof system can be asked here
No engine, gearbox or running gear questions
Think: Pluriel roof and rear window jobs
Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

following on from this thread...

citroen-c3-questions/pluriel-passenger- ... t2536.html

all finally sorted, ended up getting a secondhand door lock, and it all works fine now, Dad took it home and had a play around with it and can't find anything wrong with it, so puzzled on that one, so putting all the door back together, and what a PITA this is, its all thats stopping me from selling it now, in-between work and family things, this door swap has taken months to do, be glad to see the back of it tbh

when putting the door panel on, it will all clip up except where the door "pull" of "bar" or whatever you call it (silver door handle that goes from under the door realise pull, all the way to the back edge of the card) sits and is done up by the little tori screws, when looking at it through the front, you can see the hole but the screw won't reach,

and looking from the back, the screw won't pass the grey/silver plastic bit

this is the bit it sits on {but its the same story on the one towards the rear of the door card

It is possible to get more clips, do you have a picture of your existing clips?

yeah clips aren't the problem, its the small tori screws for the handrail that are proving to be a right pain
