I need to replace the vacuum element in the driver's door of my 1987 190E 16V. First step is to remove the door panel. My MBZ shop manual doesn't address the power seat control panel. I have removed the enclosure around the door lock itself. I removed the cover and screw on the top of the hand grip. After these steps, I can barely move the panel.

Do I need to remove or detach the power seat controls in order to remove the panel?

The three small plastic control knobs on the seat control do not easily pull off and I don't want to force anything. What next steps do I follow to remove the door panel?

Thank you for your help--Jim Herold
