Door panel project

So I couldn't get an internship this summer but I got a job at an automotive accessory and upholstery shop and I got the idea the other day to take some of the leather scraps and leather up my WK. I really want to put leather on the door armrests (that flat semi cushiony piece around the window switches and grab hole). From what I can see, that piece is separate from the hard door plastic, but does anybody know if that will separate nicely or is it something that can never be removed? I'm also doing the center consol top like the 08-10s. If it all works out ill take pics and write a how-to for anybody else who wants to do it.

I just took it off last weekend on my 2009. It popped off with a flathead srcewdriver and then you can unplug all the switches.

Are you talking about the wood switch Bezel or the vinyl part of the door panel?

The vinyl part that your arm goes on. I just took off the door grab thing and the switch panel but I don't plan on taking the whole door off till the weekend.

Think that's a part of the panel itself

you need a plastic welder to put the door panels back together after you cover some of the parts.
if you work in an upholstery shop....they should have one.

i took them apart with a dremel for the most part but you can use the welder to unWELD some parts.
