Standard Trim Disconnect the remote rod-to-lock knob assembly prior to lifting off the housing plate, to avoid possible damage to the lock knob assembly.

  1. Remove the inside door handles by unfastening the retaining screws.
  2. Remove the armrest. Tag and disconnect all electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the mirror remote control bezel nut and bezel.
Before you proceed to the next step, carefully inspect the door panel to make sure that all the retaining screws have been removed.
  1. Using a wooden spatula or panel puller (available at most automotive parts stores), pry around the trim panel putting pressure at the door trim clips. NEVER PRY BETWEEN THE CLIPS.
  2. Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the trim panel, align the clips in the panel with the holes in the door, then apply pressure on the panel over the clip until the clip snaps into place.

Deluxe Trim Disconnect the remote rod-to-lock knob assembly prior to lifting off the housing plate, to avoid possible damage to the lock knob assembly.

  2. Remove the screws from the door handle cup.
  3. If the car has an armrest courtesy lamp(s), remove the lens, then remove the bulb and wiring. Remove the pull cup.
  4. Reach through the pull cup opening and disconnect the remote lock rod from the lock knob.
  5. Remove the retaining screw and the remote mirror bezel nut from the power window regulator housing switch plate. Raise the plate to expose the window switch and power door lock switch and disconnect them.
  6. Remove the retaining screws from the armrest assembly.
Before proceeding to the next step, carefully inspect the door panel and make sure all the retaining screws have been removed.
  1. Using a wooden spatula or a panel puller (available at most automotive parts stores), pry around the trim panel putting pressure at the door trim clips. NEVER PRY BETWEEN THE CLIPS.
  2. Disconnect the speaker wiring and lift off the panel.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the trim panel, align the clips in the panel with the holes in the door, then apply pressure on the panel over the clip until the clip snaps into place.

External door handle is floppy and does'nt work


you wil have to pull the trim panel off hte inside to see if the fasteners are loose or the pivot is broken.

The trim panel mostly pulls off with spring clips after a couple of screws are removed. Pry at clips with a screwdriver.

How to remove ford door panel au11 2001. window will not go up or down


My AU11 is a XR8 with premium sound. I say this because maybe the speakers in the doors change the way the door panel is removed. I am describing the front door panel removal.

1. Remove the door lock knob by pulling it up.
2. Remove the two screw covers covering the screws which are above the speakers by gently prizing them out with a screwdriver.
3. Under one of the covers (the one closest to the speaker) is a 10mm bolt, remove this bolt by using a small 10mm socket.
4. Remove the two screw covers on the bottom of the door and remove the two phillips screws underneath.
5. Remove the phillips screw that is near the door lock knob but on the centre pillar side of the door panel. This screw is the only one that is not under a removable cover.
6. Remove the door release bezel by gently prizing the top of the bezel between the vinyl and the bezel with a screwdriver. For this you need to be gentle in order not to damage the vinyl.
7. Once the bezel is off you can see another 10mm bolt underneath that must be removed.
8. Gently prize up the electric window switches. I prized mine up carefully by using a screwdriver in the gap between the armrest and the electric switch panel. Unplug the electric switch panel which is a captive plug so you need to use a screwdriver to release the catch. You can also do the same for the electric mirror plug once the door panel is off.
9. Under the electric switch panel is another phillips screw that must be removed.
10. The door panel can now be removed by gently prizing it away from the door. I just used my hands for this but maybe you will need a wooden spatula or similar to assist. The door panel will offer some resistance and pop once the clips release. If you encounter strong resistance maybe you have another clip or screw etc that needs to be located.

Dont forget to unplug the electric mirror wires.

Ford AU11 Fairmont CD Player / Radio


You need some special tools which slot in to the holes at the sides of the stereo, they release some clips and the unit slides out. Then you can take the cover off the unit and remove the jammed CD. These units are notorious for failure, especially the six disc stackers, and are probably not worth repairing, can be more expensive to repair than fitting a decent aftermarket cd player. Most audio installers or your local Ford dealer will have the tools to remove the unit, and if you just want the radio, you could remove the jammed cd and refit the stereo and just not use the cd player. You'll need to get the radio code from a Ford dealer to get the stereo going again if you disconnect and reconnect it. They may need the serial number off the unit to give that to you, and you may need to prove ownership of the vehicle.
