Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
The first step in working on your car door is removing the door panel. (An important note: If you’re looking to remove your outside mirror, you do not need to remove the door panel; see Project 76.) Photos 1 and 2 detail the process of door panel removal. The toughest part is pulling the panel out from the door—it is attached with 11 plastic clips that can be difficult to snap out of their frames. Also, the door panel often separates as you pull it away from the frame, leaving the plastic door pockets attached. Never fear, though, these are easily glued back on at reassembly time with some 3M Super Weatherstrip glue.
With the door panel removed, you should see a foam covering glued onto the back side of the door. A black, sticky goo attaches this to the door, which can be removed and reused again if material is still pliable. Be careful not to tear the foam covering when you remove it, though.
With the panel removed, you will have access to a number of items inside the door. The door stay can simply be unbolted from the door frame and removed. The plastic door handle can easily be swapped out. The window regulator can be removed or repaired (see Project 70). Any door seals or channel guides that need renewing are accessible to you as well. If any door-mounted speakers are broken, don’t forget to replace them while you have the chance.Click this link directly.
