they are held on with tension on the door panels except the 08-10's have a single screw as well. The best bet is to remove the door panel, remove the csrew and then push up from the back of the panel

[Your screen name & last post are polar opposites. Smoothee, my @ss.] :wtf:

'08 WK FSM says to carefully pry up the door lock switch with a "trim stick", starting at the rear of the switch.

You can buy some nice nylon non-marking pry sticks in a packet for ~$7 at Harbor Freight.

I knew what you meant. On the 05-07's.....you can use a trim stick to pry them up...BUT the 08-10's have a screw as well. So probably the best way to get the 08-10's switch panel off is to remove the door panel. Its veryt easy as well....3 screws and then just pull it off. One screw that is visible at the front, one where the door handle is and one under the pull handle. Then you can remove the screw holding the switch panle and push it out from the back

Those are off an 07' WK and all I had to do was start at the rear with a trim panel tool and pry it off the door. If there is a screw on the later models, you'd be wise to listen to Scott and remove the entire door panel first. ;)
