Broken Door

I broke the oem switch by closing the door on top of the belt buckle which crushed the switch. I pulled the pieces out and bought a replacement switch but the wire that the switch plugs into is too short and doesn't stick out enough for me to plug in the new switch. It seems that the only way to plug it in is to do it from the inside by pulling out the plastic trim that's behind the switch. I tried pulling it but it's not budging. I figured if I used any more force I'd break it. Do any of you guys know how to pull out that trim? Or is there an easier way to get this little door jamb piece in there? Thanks

It might help if you told us what year/model MB you have. Better yet, look for your native forum (scroll down until you see sedans, coupes, roadsters, etc.) and post this there. Good luck and welcome to BW.
