Since 2003, a series of articles were freely published on the Peugeot Cabriolet Owners Club website providing technical guidance and other useful information.
These articles are then illegally reproduced and sold on eBay as a PDF guide. So, to help owners of 306 Cabriolets all over the world live with their chosen ride, this PDF is now published for free here - exactly how the original authors/contributors intended!
Thanks to all those who produced the original material for these articles (see www.pcoclub.org/articles for full details and additcional articles).

Below is a guide to remove the interior door card off a 306 Cabriolet. It is based on a Phase 2 model and may not apply to either the Phase 1 door trim or the later Phase 3 but is likely to form a good basis (not tried!). There is potential for damaging clips and more in doing this, so please rear and note the disclaimer at the foot of this page before proceeding!
To remove the door trim you will need a torque driver (star-shaped), a paint scraper or something similar and a small electrical screwdriver.
Important Note: Be very careful and do not rush, there are some plastic clips
that you donít want to break.
Important note: don't rush at this point if you take your time the plastic clips should pop off without breaking. You might find it easier to lie underneath the door so that you can see the clips.
These instructions were written by Andrew in order to allow access to the window mechanism. If you find the level of the window when up or down is not correct, it can be adjusted via the U-shaped clamps which hold in the front windows:
