Persistent door buzz - how do I DIY?

Hi all

Recently had the passenger-side window of my 2011 Cooper replaced due to break-in.

After getting it fixed, I noticed I was getting a constant light buzzing rattle. I took the car back in and they claimed it was some broken glass inside the door.

Problem is: it's not.

The buzz occurs when idling or any non-smooth surface. Sounds like it's coming from higher up on the inside, because when I lean across and push my finger on the interior door panel near, it stops. Seems to be coming from higher up the door somewhere under the lock.

I've taken the car in for a few rattles over the years and the success rate has always been next to zero.

I'm keen to have a shot at this myself, armed with some felt tape. Can anyone point me to a good tutorial/demonstration on how to remove the interior door panel?

Seems I need to remove the textured panel but unsure if I just give it a good yank and how to work around the lock pin.

Any suggestions most welcome.

This is what the workshop manual says:

Front door trim panel removal.

Working at the inside door handle, first pull out the retaining pin at the bottom.
Do not unclip the door handle trim cover. Trim cover is detached while removing door trim panel.

Using a plastic lever between door and trim panel lever out the panel retaining clips from the door. theres 12 on the textured panel and 10 on the elliptical trim.

Note the inside door handle trim cover is unclipped when detaching door trim panel, make sure catches on the door handle trim cover are not damaged.

When refitting the trim panel replace any damage clips and note that some are red, white or grey, replaced a new clip with the correct corresponding colour to the one removed.

Note inside door handle trim cover will only fit in one position.

Thats all it says.
