SOURCE: how to remove door panel for driver and passenger side doors

Hi. This Guide will help you with this issue.



Step1 Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver. Step2 Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights. Step3 Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out. Step4 Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side. Step5 Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off. Step6 Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lockmag-glass_10x10.gif are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together. Step7 Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle. Step8 Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.


Please rate and have a great day:)

SOURCE: Removing door panel

There's actually some more screws you missed.. they'll be hidden near the door handle and the armrest that you'll need to take off...once the panel's off, 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

SOURCE: remove door panel

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

SOURCE: door panels

You should find screws in the armrest and plastic push clips evenly spaced around the edge of the door panel. Use a stiff putty knife, slide it between the door panel & the door frame. Slide it left or right until you find the clip and pry up. It will pop out. When you have poped all of the clips out push the entire door panel up to disengage the top from the window edge.

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

How do i replace a 1992 honda accord drivers front window


IF you scroll over the title, you can see the word "window". Raise the window about two inches. Remove the interior door panel: Remove the inner door handle screw, push the handle forward, pull it out some, unclip the actuating rod, you may also have to unplug the power lock switch. Remove the screw in the arm rest. Remove the plastic plug at the forward upper corner of the panel. Remove the black plastic triangle at the insdie of the side view mirror (it just snaps in place). Pull the bottom of the panel away from the door to disengage plastic clips, then lift the panel off the door and disconnect the electrical connectors. Pull the plastic away from the bottom part of the door (you'll probably end up tearing it). There are two bolts that hold the window glass to the regulator mechanism, remove those and the glass can be pulled up through the window opening. If necessary, the bottom of the window tracks (a screw at the bottom of botjh) can be loosened to loosen up the window.

Passenger side mirror


If you need to replace the entire mirror - it's a little involved. First you need to take the upper extension panel off from behind the mirror (black triangle) - just pull it of starting at the top. It will snap back on later. Next - remove the different screws holding the door panel in place (not the ones behind the mirror yet!) One is under the handle (pull it out and pull out the filler panel - small plastic thing that has a hole to pry it out). Then take off the rear red light - also pops off - and remove that screw. Finally - pick up the rubber filler where your fingers pull the door shut and remove these torx bolts.

Now is the tricky part. Snapp off the entire interior panel. It will pop off - but very difficult. It will sound like it is breaking! Start at the outer bottom corner - and use a door panel remover tool - check Amazon or E-bay - to keep from breaking things. Pull it out from all around the bottom and sides and then lift it up over the door lock. It good to have a friend help here. The panel will still be held on by a cable - that is your door release - leave it alone and let the panel hang by it (or better, put a box under it to rest on).

Now...remove the three bolts holding the mirror on - have a friend help hold the mirror while you do this or it will scratch your new car! Since the inner panel is off - you can also disonnect the mirror plus and remove it. It sounds silly - but the only reason to remove the door panel is to unplug it!

Get you new mirror and reverse the steps.

If you are just replacing the glass (non-heated) - get a replacement from the dealer. Adjust the mirror all the way to the inside and reach behind and pop it off. CAREFUL - put tape over the entire glass as it will likely break even more! Remove your connectors if heated - and replace (and reconnect) with your new glass. It just pops back on!

Replacing glass is easy - just be careful of cheap imitations on e-abay). And never use cheap flat glass on the passenger side! The DOT has special requirements for mirror glass - buy it from gmpartsdirect.com or your local dealer.
