How do i remove the door cover in a 1986 nissan d-21 2x4?
These are general instructions,the first thing to do is remove any screws and unscrew and remove the door lock plunger at the top of the door,there will usually be two on the interior door handle inset in the side and possibly one on the door latch handle,I'll assume you have a crank window not power,so to pull the handle take a screw driver and gently pry between the panel and handle there will a small clip that holds the handle to the shaft you can usually push it off with the tip of a flat screwdriver, be careful they like to fly off.If you do have power windows a small screwdiver on either side and then pry genly up will remove it and pull the wiring plug to the switch.On the latch handle if there is a screw remove it and then pull the handle out this will give you enough space to pull the plastic cover behind it,if there is no screw squeeze the top and bottom towards each other ang genlty pry with a screw driver and this will remove the beauty ring and there should be an opening in the panel large enough to slip past the latch assembly.Once your pretty sure you have all the screws removed start at the bottom corner of the panel and gently pry between the door and the panel with a large screw driver(you can purchase a tool at a parts store to do this but it can be done safeley with a flat screwdriver)this will start pulling the plastic fastners that attach the panel to the door,its possible you'll break a few but you can buy these at your parts store,continue doing this across the bottom and up the sides,you'll know if you missed a screw at this point if the panel doesn't start pulling away from the door freely.Once your sure you have all clips free and no screws holding the panel on remove any wiring attached to the panel(window,speaker)pull the bottom of the panel out just a bit and push up on the bottom and this will disengage the panel fromm the top of the door.Reverse to re-install,if you do have crank windows put the handle slightly on the shaft and put the clip on the handle,then push the handle back on.Hope this helps ,if it does please give me a good rating!!!
