how do I remove drivers door trim? I need to fix the door pull handle.


would be held on by plastic clips around the lower sides, and by screws (like under inside door handle) that may be covered by little plastic plates which you pry off to see the screw underneath. The armrests and pull handles also use large screws. Once you get all the screws out, slip a thin bar (thin screwdriver?) under the door trim around the bottom and gently pry outward to unfasten the clips. they break easily, so work carefully, you can also buy new ones at any parts store if you ruin any. they slip[ into slots on the backside of the trim panel. Oh, yes, need first to remove window handle, unless you have power windows, then when panel is loose, reach inside and disconnect the electric switches. Once trim panel is removed, carefully peel back only what you need to of the plastic watershield. when finished you can re-stick the watershield.Simple job, but sometimes a PITA>

How to remove the car stereo from 2007 Chevy Colorado


This is not hard but tricky because the trim plate around the radio has clips that hold the trim plate very tight.Use a plastic type flat tool or flat screw driver wraped with tape or a shop rag to avoid damage to the plastic trim and pry the trim panel around the radio loose. remove all elec connectors.Then remove the screws that hold the radio in place and remove all elec connectors.

odometer back lighting is out.


You can probably find a picture tutorial by looking at forums dedicated for your car. Also try asking around car audio forums as they are constantly pulling dash boards and working with the associated wiring and such. As for doing yourself, there are some makeshift tools you will need. A small "stubby" flat head screw driver and a cat's paw will come in handy for removing the dash trim. Dash trim uses metal and plastic clips to secure it at various points around the cluster and air vents. Simply slide the cats paw behind a crack in the dash and gently pry around the entire assembly starting at the heavier guage plastic and ending with the thinner and or smaller sections. There will be a couple fasteners under the dash-above the gas and brake-that will use phllips head and i believe 5/16th and 1/4 drive bolts. Once the dashboard trim is removed, rest it on the steering column and make note of where the push pull fasteners are and if they need to be replaced for a snug re-installation. (Pepboys' Help! isle carries these by the bag full) The instrument cluster will have a mylar or similar plastic shielding which is secured by a couple fasteners and easily removed so that you can reach into the area behind and find the culprit bulb(s). I do not know what car you intend on working on and there may be variations to this teqnique if fiber optic lighting is used.

no light under console shifter


Half the answer?

There is a small access panel to the right of the shifter where a small flathead screw driver can be gently placed. Pry out the plastic panel. Now gently work the black trim off that surrounds the shifter using the inside of the hole that you just opened.

The trim will pop up. The silver piece of plastic will pull up. (The part that the shifter works through.) Now you can pull up the piece of plastic that has the gears listed on it. Set this aside. There is a small led bulb under this piece- to the left of the shifter.

Now, I have no idea how to get the bulb out. I have tried prying it out, and I broke the bulb, but it did not work anyway. My point is be careful because the glass went everywhere. Wear eye protection. I am stuck at this point.

There is a piece of black plastic around the base of the bulb, but I cannot figure out how to remove the bulb itself. Access is tight. The bulb is in a "ditch" of plastic with no real room to work in.

I tried to remove the armrest, but there is no access from this side.
