Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
In order to remove the door panel you need to remove two screws located under the top piece of the door handle. You will also need to remove the speaker and unplug the mirror adjuster if it's power if it's manual it can be removed by a couple screws. Also if it has manual window the window crank must be removed (you'll see a little ring on the inside which slides up or dow or over depending on the position of the crank and then it just slides off the splines) Then you need to remove the allen screws around the outside (they hold the panel to the clips in the door) The little plastic clips always break but are easy to replace. You will also have to unscrew the door lock pin at the top. Be careful when removing the plastic door panel material if you plan to reuse it (this helps eliminate outside noises) Some people only cut a small hole to access where they need and then tape it back shut others remove the entire thing.
