Perhaps the hole you are encountering is a roll pin which needs to be pushed out.

Re: Fraud

Although I was sent a photo asking if the interior door panel was what I wanted. It was taken on a vehicle. I asked for a photo of both sides, off the car, ready to ship . Silence, no further contact.

That would be between the cardboard panel and the upholstery. The door bezel seems to not allow any space for padding and even installing over fabric would be a tight fit
