Need Help Removing Interior Trim On Mini R56

Was wondering if anyone could give me a guide on how to remove these pieces of door trim without causing damaged as I tried the other day but I kept thinking I was going to snap it, any help would be appreciated.

The trim in the first picture is part of the door trim so it all needs to come off. There is a pin at the bottom of the handle trim, that comes out first then handle trim. Then use plastic prying tools to pull out the bottom of the door trim at the right on your picture. Once you have got it started you can get your hand in and pull it out bit by bit like undoing a zip. The centre of the door and mid speaker stay in place so you are working around that in horse shoe shaped order. For the dash trim again you will need plastic prying tools and lever it out, a trim tool you can get slightly behind it is best. You can try other tools wrapped in tape but when plastic prying tools are so cheap why risk you pride and joy.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs
