How to remove drivers door panel on a 2007 Nissan Tiida hatchback
I need to remove the door panel to get to the window assembly.
I am not sure where the screws are that hold on the panel to the door or how many there are.
I know the edges of the panel are held by push in pins that just pop out when you pull all round the edge of the panel but the scews have to be out first.
Any help please

Re: How to remove drivers door panel on a 2007 Nissan...
The door handle has a c clip behinde it that you can not see.Goto a auto parts store and thay will have a cheep tool to help you.(you need a special tool for this.The WINDOW CRANK handle has a 'c-clip' behind it. The door opening handle trim is held in by either a screw behind a plastic flap that will pop out(behind the lever)or it is held in at four points by plastic tabs (two on top and two on the bottom)that can be undone carefully with a screwdriver or the like. When this plastic trim is removed the door panel should come off. Be aware that there are plastic clips (back side of the panel) on the perimeter of the panel that hold it in as well. the tweeter panel just pops out look on the bottom of the door for screws and around the door handle and you will have to pop your window and door lock controls out and the reflector on the door pops out and there is two screws there then al you have is the clips behind the door they make tools for it but a flat tip screwdriver will be fine just get the tip close to the clip and pull it out . 1. Remove window crank (it has a kind of 'bent wire' c-clamp, which holds it onto the window crank shaft).
2. Pry upwards the top plastic cover to the arm rest (this is a plastic coated foam rubber piece, on which you rest your arm).
3. Remover the two now visible screws which fasten the arm rest onto the door.
4. Remove the one screw fastening the inside door handle.
5. With a blunt tool, gently hit the inside door handle in a forward direction (towards the door hinge). This will release the door handle from the door.
6. Pry between the door panel and the door, to unsnap the snaps holding the door panel in place.
7. Finally, lift door panel out and up to remove it from door.

For a permanent fix, you'll have to take the door panel apart, drill a hole through the handle and the big plastic door mechanism inside, and then insert a cotter pin. I found out how to do so via a nicoclub.com forum, but the critical photos of the operation seem no longer to be available there.
The first link is my notes in Evernote, including the photos from Nicoclub, while the second link goes to the Nicoclub forum on the problem, where at the end someone has added a photo showing you exactly where to drill the holes in the door mechanism.

NEED HELP PLEASE....
There should be at least one screw holding the door handle trim piece. And check for other screws, like on the door pull or armrest, may be hidden behind small rectangular or square caps or plugs that are pried off to reveal the screws. The bottom and up the sides of panel should be held by plastic pins that push in to secure. Use a putty knife or screwdriver under the panel at bottom to pry the pins out. Work carefully all around trying not to break any of the plastic retainers (although they can be replaced if broken. When all free of the plastic retainers, pull panel out from bottom and lift up and away from the window channel. Unplug any electrical connections, and panel should be free.
You need a Torx head screwdriver T25. Open the door and on the side of the door is a small black grommet, remove grommet, inside is the torx screw you need to loosen for the lock mechanism to move. you dont need to remove the screw just loosen enough to move the lock assembly around. Once loose enough, install the door handle and tighten lock assembly back and put grommet back.
Here is a picture if you need a bit of visual clues.

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.
Open the hatch and locate the 2 plastic covers, behind the tail light area on the inside panel. Remove these covers and the nut (8mm) behind them to access the light assembly. Pull lightly on the light assembly to remove, then replace the bulb.
There is a Technical Service Bulletin on the power mirror actuator for replacement. If your mirror just stopped operating, I would take it back to the dealer and they will fix at no charge due to the TSB.
