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 to change a door speaker in a 2002 Dodge Ram pickup

This is definitely something you can do yourself. Dodge has made it pretty easy to accomplish this with a small amount of tools.
Tools Required:Phillips head screw driver;T-30 sized Torx bit (looks like
Disassembly:First, remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the door, there's one on the left and one on the right.
Then, remove the screw in the small triangular piece of plastic on the top-front of the door panel. This small piece of plastic looks like it's connected to the window, but it's not. The Infinity brand name may be on this piece, if you've got the Infinity speaker system.
The last of the phillips head screws you need to remove is in the middle of the panel, directly behind the door handle.
Now, grab your Torx bit and we're going to remove the door handle. Pull the door handle up, like you're going to open the door, and you should be able to fix your driver behind the handle and unscrew the bit. The door handle should be completely off now.
Next, pull up on the door panel and you'll feel the hooks securing it to the door release. You'll have to pull all the way up and out. Sometimes it will feel stuck and that's because the door lock fist snugly in its hole.
When the door panel comes loose from the door, you'll have to stick your hand behind the panel and disconnect 2 wires running to your control panel (for windows, locks and mirrors). This is done by just pressing the tab on the connector and pulling down. This should not be extremely difficult to remove.
Now that the door panel is free and clear, remove the 4 screws from the speaker and pull it out. There is another connector running to the speaker you will have to disconnect.
Take your new speaker, connect it where you disconnected the old one and put the screws back in.
Re-connect the window and lock connections coming out of the door to the door panel.
Slip the door lock back through it's hole in the panel.
Press the panel against the door tightly and pull the panel downward, the entire panel should feel secure against the door. If it does NOT feel secure and tight all the way around, then pull the panel back up and try it again.
Once the panel's back on, put the screws back in and re-attach the door handle.
Enjoy the music!

Removing rear interior panals

Remove one Phillips screw from leading edge of door panel (near latch). Remove small cap behind the door handle, inside another Phillips screw - remove screw and then the cup behind the handle. Look down in arm rest and there is another Phillips screw. Last screw is behind the approximately 1 1/2 inch plug on front upper corner of panel. At this point, gently pry around lower edge and sides - there are either five or six clips pressed into the door frame. Once all are disengaged, gently swing the bottom of the panel out and lift off the top edge of door next to window opening. Once panel is off door, gently remove the control plug from the door lock/window control on the rear of panel. Install in reverse order
hope this helps

Need to take off door panel to put mirror on, how do you take off?

emilyandtodd, To remove the door panel you need to run your hands all around the panel to find any screws that are holding it. Remove any screws and look in the door handle where your fingers go when closing the door. There is usually a hidden screw in there. (Hidden by a little plastic cover smaller that a penny, remove the cover with a small screw driver) Sometimes there large screws around the handle itself. Look for any holes that will have phillips head screws in them. Sometimes there are lights in the door. Remove the lens and look for any screws. Also, at the door handle there is a plastic cover that can be removed with a small screwdriver and usually hides a screw. The panel is now held in by plastic push pins that are not visable until you pull the panel off. Starting at the bottom pull the panel from the door. You may need a little force here. When the panel is free from the bottom of the door pull it straight up and disconnect any wires going to the door. You will see a metal rod going to the door opener handle. This is locked in place by a plastic clip. Unlock the clip and pull the rod out. The panel should now be free. At the top, front of the door you should see a rubber insulator. Remove the insulator and there are three 10mm nuts holding the mirror in place. Remove the nuts being careful not to drop any inside the door. Remove mirror. Reverse procedure for replacement of any parts removed. Good luck with this.

My door handle from inside of passenger side is broke. How do I get the panel off?

Park the vehicle on level ground and have good lighting available. Open door all the way. Start with a pick, pocket knife or very small slot screw driver. Practically all modern vehicles utilize plastic snaps to secure the perimeter of a door panel. However, you will find that two large screws will hold the door panel on around the "door handle/arm rest" as this is where we pull the door it needs extra securing. If you look on the bottom portion of the handle, you will see either two access holes pointing up at a 35 degree angle...or two "plugs" which act as "appearance covers" hiding the actual holes. Carefully pop these out. Shine your flash light up the hole and identify the type of fastener. ( it i'll be a large Phillips # 3.....or a torx type fitting) remove these. Now, the other places to look for fasteners you remove from "your side of the door" are at the door handle "lever" remove the cover directly behind this lever. You might find this fastener also has a "beauty cover" remove it and the screw. next, top corner up by the outside mirror. you will have a speaker or a cover there that serves as the cover for the screws that mount the outside mirror. remove the cover. if you see no fasteners or covers, it likely pops off. Just be slow and careful. along with the big screws at the door handle/arm rest, there may be another fastener at the top of the handle. With all of these removed and if you see no fasteners around the bottom of the door...wedge your fingers along the bottom and pull straight out. You will be "unsnapping" the plastic fasteners at the bottom and sides of door. Now you will have a door panel that is loose at the bottom and away from the door frame itself. Barring any trim thats not part of the door panel, you should be able to raise the door panel strait up^^^ and free it from the top of the door. Remember, if its not coming off in a reasonable manner, something is still connected. Once the panel is free, sitting on the edge of the seat, put the door panel in your lap and disconnect the electrical connections, door lever rod...etcetera.....

How do I remove the front interior door panel polo 1400 1999

You'll need a torx bit for the bottom screws. The door handle comes apart (using a screw driver) to expose 2 phillips screws holding the door handle to the door, after you get those out, pop the rest of the push clips out by firmly pulling on the door panel near the bottom, There may also be another screw on the TOP Front (near the mirror) very small phillips. Once you have the door panel loose, lift UP on the door panel to remove. Once you get that panel off, you'll have to remove all the other screws to get the window regulator out (lots of 10mm bolts). Unclip / unconnect the connections etc..

Trying to remove drivers door panel on FX35

I would suspect that is a phillips screw. There may be another one in that area -- maybe not.

Removing this screw should allow yu to remove the door panel.

Procedure for removing door panel on passenger side 1994 camry


Pull off the triangle thing.
On the door, at the front edge, there should be 2 plastic caps. Remove them. Under the caps there are screws. Remove them.
On the rear of the door panel, above the latch, are 2 round things, with a smaller round thing in the middle. Press on the inner round thing, and pull the pin assemblys out.
Do you have a light on the door panel at the bottom? If so, pry it out with a small screwdriver (it's just a "press-fit"), and remove the wire connector.
Under the arm-rest, remove the big phillips screw that is hidden, about an inch back from the outer edge of the panel. You will see the hole.
Under the arm rest, remove the tiny plastic trim cover, remove another big phillips screw.
Remove the door handle: Remove the phillips screw. Slide the handle forward or backward to release it from the door metal. Undo the clamp from the lock rod to the handle.
Remove any screws at the very bottom of the panel, if there are any.
Starting at the bottom of the panel. pull straight out, to defeat the plastic clamps tht holds the panel to the door metal. Once the panel is loose, pull it up a bit to remove it from the window opening retainer. Finally, inside the panel, unplug the wiring harness to the window switch assembly.

If you need any more info, please comment back. And, Thanks for the FIxYa.

Removing inter door panel

Unscrew the armrests first.

Then you will see a few (i don't recall but i think there's 2) 5/16 sized screws under that.

The rest of the door panel is held on with plastic clips, which will most likely break, so be prepared to buy a few of them. You can gently "tug" on the door panel, starting at a corner and use a small flat head screwdriver, or a putty knife to pop out the clips.
