HOW-TO: Remove Door Panels/Mirrors

I'm in the process of painting my mirrors so I figured, why not make a How-To for the people that don't know how to remove their door panels. Whether it's for replacing speakers or removing mirrors. It's pretty simple to do.

Tools Used:
Phillips Head Screw Driver
Panel Popper (optional)
Pick Tool or Small Flat head
8mm socket and ratchet

First things first, remove the 3 screws holding the door panel on:


Here is where the pick tool comes in handy:


Next use a panel popper or flat head to remove the window switch cover like so:


Once you have popped out the switch cover, remove the harness attached on the back:


Now that all of the screws have been removed and the harness unplugged. It's time to start popping the panel off the door. Use some small force, here is where the panel tool comes in hand. Go around the whole panel until all of the clips have been popped free:


Next you'll need to unlock the push rods for the window and door lock. Push away on the plastic locks that cover the push rods. Once you have done that, you need to pull the rods out of the clips.


Then lastly you can unhook the door lock harness from the back of the panel and remove the panel from the door.


REMOVING MIRRORS:
It's very simple but I might as well throw it in here.

Unclip the harness attached to the door:


Pop the clip out of the door:


Lastly remove the 3 8mm nuts holding the mirror on. Then pull the mirror out of the door:


That's it

Fear of the unknown often stops me from doing things myself. Now I have no excuse for not replacing my speakers. Thanks a lot.

Stickied.

Ever lie, steal, dishonor your parents? Those are only 3 of 10 Commandments. Breaking 1 condemns U 2 Hell. If U want Heaven, admit your guilt, & ask God 2 forgive U based on Jesus' death on a cross. Then love God & people.
