DIY door panel removal (revision with pics)
I spent most of the day trying to remove my door panel, as my passenger window stopped working (bad motor it'd seem). I was frustrated with the lack of pictures on the stickied instruction thread. So... I decided to contribute rather than complain, and take some pictures while reassembling and added them and some more details to the current instructions. Hope this saves someone some time and frustration.
1 Unscrew the door pin [pic 1, pic 2]
2 Remove enclosure on door lock (only one screw) [pic 3, pic 4]
3 Carefully pry off cover on the door handle [pic 7, red arrow]
4 Loosen bolt inside on hand grip[pic 5, pic 6]
5 If equipped with power seats:
- Remove all 3 buttons by carefully pulling away from the door ( I used a pair of pliers with a towel over the buttons to avoid scratching) [pic 7, blue arrow]
- Carefully pry out the circle clip surrounding round switch near center of power seat controls, after removing clip the cover will pull off. [pic 8] (sorry I couldnt get a closer pic, my phone cant focus that near)
