Not quite steampunk

Mrs ERJ informed me that the driver's side door of the minivan would not open.

The problem was that the door trim pad had been pushed down and the plastic "Christmas trees" that hold it to the door inner had broken/stripped.  The trim pad shingled inside of the flange that carries the door seal strip and caused the door to lock-up.

After a bit of brute force (sorry dear), I got the door open.

The Christmas trees were trashed, and if it happened once it is likely to happen again.

Four, #10 "sheet metal" screws were employed to reattach the door trim pad and Mrs ERJ is back in business.
