Can I remove the door trim without disconnecting the battery to neutralise the airbag? The reconnection process is a pain.

I am hunting down an annoying rattle from the leading edge of the driver's door/dashboard area. It sounds the sort of noise you would get from a loose washer on a fastener that is coming adrift. Any suggestions gratefully received.

No need to disconnect battery. Airbag is separate from door card. Only airbag cover is part of it.
