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

Exterior door handle on 97 thunderbird


You will have to remove the door panel. To do this use a phillips screwdriver and remove the two screws under the inside door handle. Then lift and remove the section. Remove another screw from the interior lower left corner. Pry the window crank apart "if exists" then use a T20 torq bit to remove the screw in handle. Remove the panel by lifting and pulling at same time. With window in up position you can see inside the hole a rod going from the door handle to a bracket with a Yellow clip. Slide the clip to the open position and pull the rod out of the clip. From the outside of door under the handle there are two rivets. Use a punch and knock out the center of each rivet. Then use a 1/4" drill bit and drill out the rivet. A flat tip screwdriver will be used to knock off the rest of the rivet. You will need two flat head screws and lock nuts or to reinstall the handle. Lift out old handle with attached rod. Twist rod as you pull to remove it and install it into the new handle. Place the rod through the hole and look inside to be sure is will move to the location of the yellow clip.Install the screws from the outside and the nuts from the inside and tighten. From inside connect the rod to the yellow clip. Lift on the rod while closing the clip. Then test door handle. If it doesn't work properly the rod was not lifted or pulled outward enough. Redo that step until you get it right. Reinstall inner panel as removed.

I am trying to take the passenger door panel off of my 2003 kia spectra however it still seems connected towards the front side of the door but i tryed to removed the two tan screws just free spin i do...


hello,
Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent shock when handling the door components. Loosen the cable's nut with the pliers and slide it away. Pop off the side-view mirror interior panel with the tweeter on it. Use the door panel trim tool or a flat-bladed tool, such as a putty knife, wrapped in masking tape. Once the panel is off, unplug the speaker connection from behind it. Push the connector's tab in with a flat head screwdriver and pull the connector away. Open the door fully to expose the screw cover on the front part of the door panel. Pry out the screw cover with a flat head screwdriver. Pry out the small centerpiece; not the ring surrounding it. Behind the cover, you'll find a Phillips screw; remove it.
Open the screw cover flap behind the inside door handle. Insert the tip of a flat head screwdriver into the upper-slot; push down to open the flap. Remove the Phillips screw from behind the flap. Pull off the plastic door handle surround piece. Insert the door trim tool behind the panel; pull it back to pull the panel off. Slide the surround piece away from the door panel.
Remove the circular screw cover from the inside door pull storage compartment. Pry it up with the flat head screwdriver. Remove the Phillips screw behind the cover. Remove the screw cover from the rear-edge of the door panel. This cover is similar to the one on the front part of the door panel; pry out the center part, not the ring surrounding it. Remove the Phillips screw behind it.
Remove the two Phillips screws visible along the bottom part of the door panel.
Pry around the perimeter of the door panel with the door trim tool. Pull the tool handle back to pop the door panel clips out. Do this for each side, except for the top. Once the clips are unhooked, the panel is ready for removal.
Gently pull the door panel away from the Optima's door, but only enough to access the area behind it. The connections for the power equipment must be unplugged. Reach around and depress the connection tabs with the tip of the flat head screwdriver; unplug the connection. There are three connections to unplug. Once they are unplugged, pull the door panel away.

Thanks

I need to know how to replace the driver side door handle on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder?


If you can get a trim removel tool it helps to keep from breaking the clips. Next, it is just a matter of taking out all the phillips screws. There is one in the handle area, under the little center cover. There is one at the front of the door panel and another under the electrical switch. Once all the screws are out the clips still hold the panel on and that is where the trim removal tool helps. It looks like a flat tool with a recess to get around both sided of the clip. You just slide it in and pry out and that way the clip or door panel does not get broke.

I like to have a helper so when the panel comes all the way off you have someone to hold it whild you remove the connectors to the wiring. Also, when you get all the clips off you will need to lift up to get the panel off the window ledge.

Two screws under the handle mine is snapped off.
Remove the door panel, disconnect the linkage to the handle and remove 2 screws that hold the Handle on.

Hope this help.

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.

Interior Door Handle


This was a three minute repair, once I had the replacement handle. Leave the door panel alone! Remove the single screw holding the old handle in place. Use a flat blade screwdriver to jimmy the old handle away from the door about an inch. There are two plastic clips holding it to the rods, one for the locking mechanism and one for the latch. Use the flat blade screwdriver to unclip these two connectors. Remove the broken latch, and don't worry, the rods won't disappear into the door! Reverse these steps with the new handle (insert rods, attach clips, wiggle assembly into place, and fasten with single screw). You're done!
