SOURCE: hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal

Removing the door is very tricky, trust me on this. I ended up breaking it the first time, so please learn from my mistake.

1. Remove all visible screws: 2 at bottom of door, 3 on front near hinge, 1 on inside the door lever. You will need an average size phillips screwdriver to do this.

2. On the door handle itself, you will see two circles. Pop the front one out. You will need a LARGE size phillips screwdriver to do this.

3. Once screws are removed, take a (standard) flat-head screwdriver, preferable one with a large face, and pry the triangular piece of plastic (that covers the outside SIDE mirror) off. This will aide in puting the door panel back on...TRUST ME!!!

4. Take the same flat-head screwdriver, and pry behind the door lock (at the same time, push forward toward the door hinge). The assembly should pop out.

5. Gently pry the door panel from the door, making sure not to break any unnecessary pieces along the way. The door panel should be hanging by the window sill opening.

6. This is where it will get tricky. It is advised that you use help with this part: Angle the door panel at a 45 degree angle. AT THE SAME TIME, slightly bend and twist the door lock handle until it fits through the hole. You will see the 3 pegs the held it in the door from before. Also note: Be careful not to break the 2 poles that are attached to the lock.

7. After popping the lock through the hole, you should be able to lift the door upward, and off the sill. Repeat these steps in reverse order to re-attach door panel.

Be careful not to rip sound-deadening paper found on inside of door unless you intend to remove or replace it! Not only does it prevent dirt and moisture from entering your door (and possible rusting it from the inside out), but it makes your speakers sound better too!

-SportTunerFreak

**It is also recommended to put a tiny bead of silicone on the inside of the door panel to help suppress any rattling, and prevent moisture and dust from entering. It also helps your screws obtain a tighter fit. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: How to remove rear door panel on 2001 continental?

You'll need to 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. If needed, 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

How do you open up door to acess power window switch 2007 mazda 3


Places to look for screws (general guide, not model specific):

1) within the door opener latch. Pop out any plastic backing plates.
2) Beneath arm rest area. Pop out the arm rest if possible and inspect. Some screws may be located under a thin rubberized matting which sits in the arm rest/ door grab handle recess.
3) Within the window switch cluster. The window switch cluster can be popped out on many models, without the need to remove the door panel.

I haven't removed a Mazda 3 door panel before, but I have removed a Ford Focus panel (Based on the same model) and the panel pretty much just all popped off.

The trick to removing panels is to pop off whatever you can, and then feel for where any tight bits may be, then look at that location carefully for screws or other types of retaining clips.

How to take off the door panel on a 2001 Ford Escape


Hello,

To take off your door panel, follow the steps below:
  • Raise the window of the door panel you wish to remove. Disconnect the negative battery cable and engage the parking brake for safety.
  • Remove the sail panel trim from the upper portion of the door panel. The sail panel panel is attached by clips; pop the panel off and disconnect the power window switch (if equipped).
  • Pull the interior door handle towards you to access the door handle trim screw. Remove the screw and slide the door handle panel off the door panel.
  • Pry up the window switch control panel and disconnect the electrical modules. Set the panel aside. Remove the three panel-mounting screws on the lower portion of the door panel.
  • Use the trim panel tool to help you pop the door panel clips from the door. Work your way around the entire door, until all of the clips are removed. Carefully remove the panel from the door.
Take care and good luck

How to remove door panel on a 1985 cadillac eldorado


Very easy! One tool that will save you a lot of headache and anger can be bought at any auto parts store and looks like this:


c3c9660.jpg
You use this tool to pop loose the plastic fastners that are attached to the door panel edges.

But first, remove all screws...remove the door handle cup, pop loose the master door/window stich assmbly, etc. Very simple process....takes less than 10 minutes.

Door Panel
  1. Remove all door inside handles.
  2. Remove the door inside locking rod knob.
  3. On styles with door pull handles, remove the screws inserted through the handle into the door panel.
  4. On styles with remote control mirror assemblies, remove the remote mirror escutcheon and disengage the end of the mirror control cable from the escutcheon.
  5. On styles equipped with switch cover plate in the door armrest, remove the screws securing the cover plate, then disconnect the switches and cigar lighter, if so equipped, from the harness connectors.
  6. Remove the remote control cover plates and remove the exposed screws securing the cover plate to the door inner panel.
  7. On styles with integral armrest, remove the screws inserted through the pull cup into the armrest hanger support. On some styles it may be necessary to remove the screws behind the armrest deflector or courtesy lamp remote control cover plate. On styles with armrest applied after the door trim installation, remove the armrest to door inner panel attaching screws.
  8. On styles with with two piece trim panels, disengage the retainer clips at the front and rear of the upper trim panel. Remove the upper trim panel by lifting upward and sliding slightly rearward to disengage the the front door inner panel at the beltline.
  9. On styles with electric switches located in the door trim panel, disconnect the wire harness at the switch assembly.
  10. To remove the lower trim panel, remove the attaching screws along the upper edge of the lower trim panel. Then starting at a lower corner, insert a pry type tool between the door inner panel and the trim panel and disengage the retaining clips down both sides and across the bottom. On styles with courtesy lamps or reading lamps located in the trim panel, disconnect the wire harness at the lamp assembly.
  11. On styles with one piece trim panels, remove all the clips around the perimeter of the trim panel. Push the trim panel downward and outboard to disengage it from the door inner panel at the beltline. Disconnect any courtesy lamp wire harnesses, if so equipped and remove the trim panel from the door.
  12. Installation is the reverse of removal. On styles with adjustable trim supports at the beltline, the door trim panel can be adjusted in or out so as not to restrict door window operation

I need to replace the door handle on my '96 honda civic, how do i get it off?


Pop off the speaker grill and remove the three screws securing the panel to the door frame. You do not have to remove the screws holding the speaker to the panel. Remove the window crank. There is a "U" shaped retaining spring holding the handle to the spindle. It can be removed with a special tool or just by pressing in on the panel and loosening the clip with a small flat blade screwdriver. Remove the screws in the arm rest and above the interior door handle lever.

Pull the panel from the door - be careful of the speaker wires - carefully undo the quick connect.


From the top corner, pull down on the plastic sheet.
Remove the square white plastic box that is used as a guide for the control bars.


Locate the exterior handle mechanism. There are 2 10mm bolts that hold the handle to the door frame. Remove them with a ratchet and extension.


Pop the retaining clip (it's green for the left door) free from the lock cylinder control rod, then pull the rod from the back of the lock cylinder.
Covering the back of the lock cylinder is a metal plate. Holding the plate to the cylinder is another "U" shaped spring clip that can be pulled down with a flat blade screwdriver.


After removing this clip, the metal plate will seperate from the cylinder. The culinder can then be pulled free from the inside and the handle from the outside.

Reverse the procedure to reinstall.

How to remove interior door panel on 2004 ford expedition?


First pop off the door open handle back plate with a screwdriver. It just snaps on. Do the same with the switch cluster plate below which also snaps in place and remove the switch harness connectors. Next pop off the small narrow cover plate under the armrest pull handle to expose 2 Torx screws. Remove these screws. Next locate a Phillips screw in a retaining cup which is located on the end of the interior door panel just above the latching mechanism and remove that. Locate two 3/8" hex head screws at the bottom of the door panel and remove those. Grab the door panel by the armrest handle and pull up to unhook it from the door. If its the driverside door, you will also have to diconnect the mirror adjustment switch connector to free the door panel.
