I assume you are talking about the door card, or cardboard trim cover inside the door.
Step 1, remove all screws. There will be one screw holding down the handle trim plate. Pull back the handle and check carefully. If your car has manually operated windows, you have to remove the window winder handle. Push the card in around the handle trim to expose the handle stem. There is a clip that holds the handle in place which you have to "fish" out with a thinnish length of wire. Be careful, if this clip gets lost, which it easily does, it is difficult to replace. If your car has electric windows, the switch should come off with the card, no problem. There might also be one or two screws at the bottom of the door card holding down the corners.
Step 2, OK, screws all removed. Now, very carefully, insert a flat screwdriver, the bigger the better, in between the card and the the door. Carefully move the screwdriver in any direction until it jams up against the plastic clip that holds the card onto the door, and force the clip out. It is a good idea to place a wad of cloth between the screwdriver and the metal of the door to prevent damage to the paint. Once the clip pops, it becomes easier to pop the next one and then the next and so on. There should be at least eight or ten plastic clips that hold the card down, and if you can get them all out without breaking one, you are extremely lucky.
Step 3. Carefully (see how often I use this word) lift the card upward to unhook it from the top edge of the door. It might be necessary to unhook the door handle pull rods before removing the card. This is done by unhooking the plastic hooks that retain the rods. It's very easy to unhook, much more difficult to get back in place.
Have fun.

How to replace passager mirror

You should specify the make and model but chances are there are little clips on your door panel. You can't see them. remove the screws from the inside doorhandle and possiblie the bottom of the panel. Then the panel should pull up and off or you may need a screwdriver to pop the clips out between the panel and metal door. Then just unhook wires for the window and speaker. The speak will stay with the panel and your door and mirror will be exposed to work on

1998 Ford F150 supercab - passenger side door won't open

Get inside the backseat remove two screws that hold the side window. Gently pull the top plastic panel out all around and the panel will come out. It is held by about six clips. Then remove the screws and a nut off the bottom panel. These are all at the top of the bottom panel. Remove a couple of screws thatholds the inside doorl latch. Once all out then simply lift up on the bottom panel and it will come out. Remove the plastic sheet that overs the side door underneath the panel. Now you can see the whole mechanisim for the unlatch. On my truck the problem was with the top cable going into the latch mechanisim. The top cable came loose, out of the slot that held it in place. I pit it back into the slot and made a metal clip to keep it in place. If your interested I can add picture of the clip. Reassembled the door and was done in about three hours.

How to remove inside door panel passanger side

Remove the screw by the handle that opens the door and the screw by the defrost vent. Then remove the screw that would touch the dash if the door was closed. Then remove the screw in the handle that you would use to close the door from the inside. Now remove the 2 screw at the bottom of the panel, these are kind of hard to find, runs you finger around in the carpet. Pull the plastic cover off around the opening handle, and unplug the window and lock switches. Now carefully pry off the panel. After you get the clips to release, unhook the rod from the back of the opening handle.

The drivers side door won't open from the outside. How do you take the door apart from the inside? Thanks!

There are a couple of screws holding the armrest in place, remove them. Using a small pick type of tool, pop out the power window master switch, there is another screw under it. The door panel itself is held in place with push clips, so grab the panel from the bottom and pull it out until all the clips are out of the door, then slide it straight up to get it off the top of the door edge.

How to remove the front door of a 2000 toyota sienna

  1. Remove the phillips screw that holds the door handle trim piece (under the door handle)
  2. Remove the phillips screw at the upper front under the small round trim cap. Pry gently around all sides of the cap, prying a little more each time.
  3. Remove the arm rest by forcing it up with a screw driver. Start with the end towards the front of the car. Start prying at the front edge and next to the door panel. The arm rest has two clips (one at front edge and one about three inches back. Once the two clips are loose the arm rest flips towards you which unhooks the back two prongs.
  4. Pry off the control panel. This trim piece has a metal clip that you need to press from the front edge. There is a small indent to allow a small screwdriver. Don't use a screw driver! Use a thin putty knife, but a scredriver will work. There is a lip that the knife will catch on and release the trim. The back of the trim has a fixed clip, so unless you release the front clip it ain't gonna budge! Then unplug the attached wires.
  5. Now remove the 2 screws that appeared once the arm rest is off. I think that's all the screws. Pry the bottom of the panel away from the door starting at the bottom back corner (you will feel where there is resistance) and the plastic retaining clips will pop loose one after the other.
  6. Your panel should now be completely loose on both sides and the bottom, held on only by the top lip (that is supposed to lift off) and the door handle trim
  7. The door handle trim is a little tricky but once you know its not that hard. First of all its held it place by two clips. One is directory over the lock switch and one directly under it. Carefully pry underneath the trim in both of these location and twist the screwdriver to pop off the clips. There is still a hook clip nearer the front of the trim so to pull off the trim you have to kind of pop out the two clips while pulling towards the rear of the car since the hook clips slides out towards the rear.
  8. Once that is off its just a matter of lifting the whole panel up until it unhooks from the top of the door.

How do i remove interior door panel & trim

Answer There is a small black plastic piece that surrounds your door handle. You MUST take that off, I find a small flat tip screw driver works best. The plastic cover that goes on the inside part of the door where your mirror is should be removed, makes it a lot easier to remove door trim: No screws on that part just grab from both sides and pull. 3 screws on bottom and 1 screw inside the armrest. The window crank, easiest way tried and true, shoestring, pull handle towards inside of car until you have enough room to fit the shoestring between crank and plastic washer. Give it a pull back and forth and it'll pop right off; clip should stick to shoestring as an added bonus.

How do I remove the inside door panel so I can figure out what part of the door latch is broken? The door will not open.

First you have to remove the black cover behind the mirror by popping out the cap over the screw. Then the window crank, there's a clip behind the crank holding it to the shaft. You will have to push in on the door panel to see it, and push it off with a flat screw driver or whatever you have that can get between the crank and panel. Next pop out the caps at the top and bottom of the door handle and remove those screws. Next remove the speaker cover and speaker. Next remove the two screw located under the arm rest, in the door pocketl. Next remove the screw behind the latch that opens the door. Now you have to slide the latch unit back to unhook the front of it. The linkeage is gonna make it hard, but it will move. Now unsnap the door panel along the bottom edges all the way around until the panel is free. Slide the panel upward to unhook it at the top. The latch unit should be able to twist and pull throught its opening. That should do it. Good Luck!
