How do you take the front driver side door panel off on 2010 hyundai elantra

It is pretty easy, but care must be taken so as to not damage the door panel. I recommend purchasing a door panel clip removal tool for this purpose. They are available at most parts retailers for just a few dollars. Using these tools to relaese the plastic clips on the door panel can save you a lot of aggravation and expense.

> Remove the triangular-shaped cover that covers the inside portion of the door mirror mountings. It simply "un-clips".

> Remove the screw that retains the bezel over the indide door release handle and remove the bezel.

Remove the two scres retaining the door panel to the door frame. One is under the triangle cover behind the mirror that you removed, and the other goes straight down into the pocket of the door pull.

Then use the special door clip release tool (recommended) or another suitable tool to pop the clips loose around the perimeter of the door panel. Lift out and up to remove door panel.

Installation is the reverse order.

Power switch drivers door


You will have to remove the inside door panel in order to remove the switch assembly. There are 9 or 10 scews to take out and then the door panel will pop off the door and then lift the panel upward to clear glass channel. Turning the panel over, you can now gain excess to the screws holding the switch to the panel.

Hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa.

you need to remove the trim pannel parallel to the mirror on the inside of the vehicle, normally triangle shaped, from there there will be 3-4 nuts or bolts you need to remove, once that is done the mirror will be free to be removed.

Replacing driver's side mirror on Kia Sorento

These instructions are for a 2013 Kia Sorento (Passenger Side Mirror)

1) remove speaker cover on inside door panel:

2) Use a small screwdriver to pry it away from the door. Be careful of the paint:

3) The panel will expose the 3 main bolts that need to be removed:

4) The cable harness needs to be removed this is located behind the door panel. Remove the one screw behind the screw cover:

Once the one screw is removed it will allow you to move the door panel enough to get to the harness and the 2 bottom bolts.

Here is how the harness looks:

Once the harness is removed and the 3 bolts removed the mirror will come out.

Repeat the steps to re install your new mirror.

Replacing RH Side view mirror on a 2006 Toyota Sienna

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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
