Hi,
I had to remove mine at the time I was fitting a rear reversing camera and a high security lock to the sliding side door.
Take a deep breath and start pulling outwards whilst feeling for the white plastic clips. Mine came off with only 2 broken clips out of about 6-8.
I had a couple of "trim removal tools" to help, but to be honest, by the time you've enough space to get them to the clips, the panel is popping off, though they do help a bit.
Be prepared to buy some clips and join me in a minute's silence for the good old days when van panels had screws holding them on Confusedalut:
Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement…

Yes, Argos is correct in what he says, I had both sides off last weekend in order to wire up a couple of led lights to improve boot lighting, whilst the panels were off I fitted a perm live trailing 12volt socket which lives in the right hand recess until needed.
Tug away with confidence, the panels come away and replace easily.

Anybody got some pictures of this? Or even the panel removed so I can see where the clips are etc? I've got a one week old new Berlingo and don't want to make a complete mess of this?

Much appreciated,
Colin.

Colin I appreciate you concerned, but don't fret - I've just made quick video so you can see how to do it, just need to figure out how to upload it, or put on youtube.
