I want to replace the power seat control (memory numbers have rubbed off)on my 1991 SL. This is a project I would like to do myself. Can anyone direct me on how to remove the (drivers side) interior door trim panel. I've done it on a 107 (with instructions). So, I'm sure I can do this, but would like instructions. Thanks.

One of the best investments I ever made was to join ALLDATA at http://www.alldatadiy.com. I saved a bundle replacing a power window motor. The detail is excellant. There are screws and catches that are hidden on the door panel. Alldata has pictures showing locations. The subscription is 19.00 per year.

1. Remove the small piece of wood trim above your seat controls. <br>
<br>
2. Remove the phillips head screw behind that piece and pull off that<br>
metal piece it was holding that is hooked at the end by the door lock<br>
switch.<br>
<br>
3. Pull out the door lock switch<br>
<br>
4. Pop out the seat switch piece of wood and disconnect the harness<br>
<br>
5. Open your map pocket. You will see a small piece of plastic toward<br>
the front with a small screw, remove that and the piece of plastic.<br>
<br>
6. Remove the screw recessed deeply in the hole in the rear section of<br>
same map pocket<br>
<br>
7. Remove 3 screws holding the chrome plate on the rear top of the door<br>
<br>
8. Pop out the door light and disconnect it (2 wire black plug)<br>
<br>
9. Take a 10mm socket and remove the bolt from behind that first piece<br>
of wood you removed.<br>
<br>
10. Get a BIG phillips head screwdriver and remove the large screw<br>
behind the little piece of plastic that was in the map pocket<br>
<br>
11. Remove the triangular piece of trim parallel to the side rear view<br>
mirror (pop the top section and pull up)<br>
<br>
12. Pop the snap connectors along the bottom edge of the door panel.<br>
<br>
13. Reach under and disconnect the yellow vacuum line for the door map<br>
pocket lock<br>
<br>
14. Lift the entire door panel up to remove.<br>
