Question about 2006 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

Removing door panel

I dropped something important into the door panel of my 2006 Kia Spectra EX, in the slot where the window goes. i removed all the screws i could find and the bottom part of the door panel lifts out, but it's still attached at the middle. Do I need to remove the armrest part of the door, where the window controls, mirror controls, and lock controls are? And if so, how would I go about doing that? When I try to pry them off, it seems like I'm going to break something.
And once I get the door panel off, how would I get to the area where the window moves up and down?
Thank you very much for any help you could give.

There's actually some more screws you missed.. they'll be hidden near the door handle and the armrest that you'll need to take off...once the panel's off, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

check your fuse box under the hood. There'll be a much bigger relay in that box that controls your running lights and windows. Those relays may have gone bad
