How to remove my rear interior door panel on a Saturn 2007 vue.


This takes a special tool that you get from an autoparts store. If you don't use that tool you break all the clips or you tear the compressed backing on the door panel. The way to use the tools is slide it under the bottom lip of the panel. move it to the left or right till you hit a clip, then you pry the clip out. The tool looks like a two prong fork. The forks fit around either side of the clips to pry them out of the door. You do that all the way around the bottom of the door edge. Then you make sure that the ***** that maybe present holding the arm rest or door handles are removed and you lift the bottom of the panel up and away and it comes out of the wind slot.

    Hi, The drivers side exterior door handle is not working on our BMW X5, the handle appears to be loose and slightly sitting out further than it should be. Can anyone tell me what is the best proceedure to...


    stop by your local auto parts store and ask for a trim removal tool. they will hook you up with the right stuff. Start by removing all the screws you see in the door panel, such as those holding the arm rest in place. taking the trim tool, feel around the outer edge of the door panel for the clips that hold it in place. when you find one, put the tool around it and pry outward until the clip comes out of the door. do this until you have the panel free.

    Once the panel is off, you will be looking for a loose rod sitting inside the door that will need to be reconnected to the handle.

    Good luck.

    Would like to know how to remove drivers door panel on a 2002 Lincoln ls


    Start by visiting your local auto parts store and getting a trim removal tool. Once you are ready to get started, remove the screws holding the arm rest and set them aside. using the trim tool, insert the edge under one edge of the lower door panel until you feel it hit one of the door panel clips. Gently pry the panel outward and the clip will come loose. Move on to the other clips working the bottom first, then the sides. Usually the top will loosen if you tug it upward and away from the door.

    Best wishes.

    Is there any certain way to remove the driver's door panel


    There's a few tools you'll need:
    panel removal tool $7-$10 (forked)
    if you have hand crank windows you'll also need a window crank removal tool
    screw drivers - philips and small straight
    Note pad and pen or pencil
    zip lock plastic bag
    May need:
    socket set
    allen and torx drivers

    Use the note pad to make notes where everything goes.
    Open the door all the way.
    Use the straight screw driver to pop any small plastic covers off.
    remove any screws that are holding the panel or arm rests or anything else attached to the door (this is where the socket, allen or torx drivers may come in handy)
    put all the small part in the plastic bag (use more than one to keep things straight, if you need to.)
    starting at the bottom back corner start gently pulling the panel, you'll soon find spots where it's sticking, here you'll find plastic panel attachment pins. Using your panel removal tool, slide it under the panel and find the panel pins, slide the tool around the pins and pry them loose, You may find an extra screw you missed or a few panel pin toward the center, remove as before.
    The panel should now be hanging by where it clips over the window edge (if working indoors, putting the window down ahead of time helps here) gentle lift and pull the panel up and off where it's hanging.
    All that's left is disconnecting any wires, there will be clips molded into the sides to hold them in place, gently lift the clip and disconnect them.
    Your panel should be loose.
    Reverse to reinstall.

    Drivers door panel removal


    The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
    3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
    4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
    5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
    6. remove door panel.
    KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
    One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
    Hope this helps you out.
