How do u take the door panel off on a 1995 Honda civic


Instructions
    • Check the power window fuse. Remove the kick panel located under the steering column to expose the fuse panel. Use the illustration on the kick panel to locate the power window fuse, remove it and inspect the filament. Replace if the filament is broken.
    • 2Open the hood and use a wrench to loosen the negative battery terminal. Remove the negative battery terminal and set it aside.
    • 3.
      Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the speaker cover and speaker on the appropriate door. It is not necessary to remove the speaker from its wires.
    • 4Unscrew the armrest with a Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the armrest.
    • 5Locate the door trim panel running along top of the interior of the door; where the door meets the bottom of the window. Use your Phillips head screwdriver to remove the retaining screws of the door trim panel. Grip the panel firmly and remove it by pulling upward.
    • 6Remove the door panel with your hands. The outer border of the door panel is connected with a series of plastic slips. Carefully unseat the clips to remove the door panel. Work the speaker through the speaker hole in the door panel.
    • 7Locate the window bracket. It is a combination of metal arms holding the window glass in place. The arms form an 'X' shape with the upper right arm attached to the power window motor.
    • 8Use your hand to disconnect the power window motor relay. Make sure there are no breaks in the wires and the fuses inside the relay are intact. If the relay is broken or does not connect properly with the power window motor it must be replaced.
    • 9Inspect the swing bolts on the window mounting bracket. There should be a visible amount of grease to lubricate the joints. If the swing bolt joints are dry they may be stuck. Use all-purpose automotive grease to lubricate the locked swing bolt joints.
    • 10Hold the glass in place and use the approapriate socket wrench to remove the regulator. The regulator is the metal arm holding the bottom of the window glass in place. It is attached to the bottom-most 'X' shaped arms. Remove the regulator.
    • 11Use a pencil to mark the location of the gear on the power window motor. Remove the power window motor mounting bolts and remove the motor from the door. Inspect the gear on the motor for grease and lubricate if necessary. If the motor does not work after greasing it must be replaced.
    • 12Replace door panel, door panel trim, armrest, speaker and speaker cover. Replace the negative battery terminal and lower the hood.

Replace front speakers


You would have to open the door panel to replace front speakers. Look for any screws around the door handle. look at the whole door panel for any screws so that you may remove the panel in order to reach the speakers. once the panel is free from any visible screws, use a door panel remover ($5-10) and use it to pry off the panel, use it around the door panel push-in connectors, and don't use extreme force, may break connectors. once the connectors around the whole panel are removed. make sure your window is down before the whole procedure. then pick up the panel from the bottom (push up), then the panel should be off the door, if you want to change the speakers, you don't need to take any of the wiring to the window/door lock. simply remove the cover if any over the stock speakers, usually some screws. once the cover/screws are off. the speaker should come off. You will see two wires off the speakers (the red(positive) the black(negative)), once the stock speaker is removed, simply attatch the new speaker to the wires. make sure the negative and positive from the car DO NOT TOUCH, you WILL short circuit and blow a fuse, maybe worse, and it's not worth the time fixing. hope this helps, good luck.

    Do i have to remove the door panel to take off door speaker covers? Speaker covers are starting to rust and want to remove all 4 speaker covers on door just to paint them. Trying to remopve without...


    I believe that your speaker covers are clipped in through the back of the panel and won't come out through the front without breaking some of the clips. The proper way would be to remove the door panels and remove the covers out the back of the panel.

    On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the panel
