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

Need to remove passenger door panel on my lexus rx300. The window fell in the door and need to pull it out.


basically you remove all the screws (put them in a cup) from the inside door handle and window controls, the rest of the panel prys off from the edges , carefully with flat screwdriver, don't worry about breaking the plastic push in clips that hold the door panel on, the are replaceable for cheep at auto supply stores and lowes, home depot have them also, hope this helps?

Do I need to remove the door panel to replace my side view mirror? It seems impossible to get the bottom bolt back in.


I WORK FOR A DIFFERENT CAR MANUFACTURER HOWEVER IN MOST CASES MIRRORS ARE INSTALLED BEFORE THE DOOR PANEL IS INSTALLED, SO IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT THERE ONE OR MORE SCREWS/BOLTS/NUTS BEHIND THE DOOR PANEL. IF YOU HAVE A POWER MIRROR OR HEATED MIRROR YOU WILL LIKELY HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL TO ACCESS WIRE HARNESS. THE DOOR PANEL SHOULD NOT BE VERY HARD TO REMOVE THOUGH. YOU WILL NEED TO FIND SOME SCREWS THAT HOLD THE PANEL ON, TYPICALLY UNDER THE PULL HANDLE AND OPEN HANDLE (MAYBE COVERED BY A PLASTIC CAP). THE PANEL IS ONLY HELD ON WITH PLASTIC CLIPS, GENTLY PULL THE PANEL AWAY FROM METAL DOOR PANEL. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR WINDOW IS DOWN THIS MAY MAKE IT EASIER TO REMOVE AND REINSTALL PANEL

Remove inside door panel passenger side front to replace the side view mirror


to remove the panel they make special tools that make the job alot
easier available at most any parts store. that said there should a screw
that holds the trim piece by your door handal and then you will see nut
that holds it remove it this nut can also be located under the arm rest pad that should pop off make sure any door speakers are not mounted
through the panel if you have crank window one of the tools i mentioned
to remove the u shaped spring clip behind crank if you have pwr. windows there should be enough wire to pull it out + unplug it if not remove the trim plate + win. ctrl. the panel is held by spring clips use the other side of the window tool starting at the bottom work your way
accross + up both sides the clips will stay in the panel once yoe have poped all clips lift panel from sides over the top lip of the door + change
your mirror to put panel back line the clips up with holes + pop them in
make sure you pu the panel tool it's so much easier.
hope this helps good luck.

I am needing a door lock actuator (passenger door) for my 2000 Lexus RX300. Do you know of any parts places besides Lexus where I might find one ?


Try to find your solution here, from Germany Lexus Owners:

QUOTE
I justreplaced my door lock actuator on my 2003 Lexus RX300. A rather comprehensive set of instructions for removal of the door panel can be found at: clublexus.com door+panel+removal

To remove the door handle trim: after removing the screw in the door handle trim, pry (I use a painters 5 in 1 tool) the trim piece outwardsfrom the rear of the door panel at both the top and bottom of the trim piece. This will release the two small rear clips. Then push the trim forward to release the main clip located on the back side the handle trim piece

As the least expensive OEM replacement door lock actuator for Lexus RX300 is $230 or more, I opted for the $15 replacement option as outlined below: us.lexusownersclub.com/forums

Keep in mind that this job outlined above is a bit on the technical side.If you aren't that talented, spend the money and order a OEM Lexus replacement latch actuator and do the installation as the OEM latch assembly is not repairable.

Viel Gluck (good luck in German)
END QUOTE

I hope helps with this. Good luck.

Method for removing master window switch on 00 RX300? Not unpluging, just panel removal from door panel.


insert a small flathead screwdriver under the rear of the switch panel and pull up, it might be kind of hard to get out so pull hard! a tip for not scratching the panel would be to put electrical tape on the end of the screwdriver that your using.

How do you install adjustable lowering coilover springs on a 1991 Honda CRX SI?


NOT NECESSARILY IN ORDER: Remove the 2 nuts from the top of your shock tower under the hood - remove the pivot bolt at the bottom of your shock fork - remove the upper control arm ball joint nut - remove the lower control arm ball joint nut - bang on the thick metal near the ball joints with a hammer (not hitting the rubber or the ball joint's bolts - remove the tie rod ball joint nut and do the same with the hammer - pull the shock and spring assembly out - You might need a spring compressor to take out the stock spring safely - remove the nut on top of the shock - It's recommended that you replace your shocks now - install the new springs according to the directions with the package - get a camber correction kit for your car - put it back together and immediately go pay for an alignment. Good luck.
