There are 7 pins total. 3 along the bottom and 4 along the sides. What I used was a 1 1/2" putty knife that I ran along the door until I felt a pin. Then I would insert a second putty knife on the other side of the pin. Then with a knife on each side of the pin; twist the knives, and you should here a loud POP. This is normal for those pins, it just sounds scary. The two pins on the bottom corners are long, the rest are short.

You're going to want to remove the piece around the door lever so that the lever will clear the panel later. Then pry the trim piece around the switch, and that's it. Do this gently using a pocket srewdriver. DO NOT pry out the wood grain piece or the reflector.

The clips in the center behind the armrest are hidden from view, but don't worry, just pull straight up and NOT OUT, with the door panel and you will disengage the clips

2008 chevrolet interior door handle repairs


There is a repair kit for you truck. The part that is broken is the metal piece. If you go through GM you have to buy a brand new interior door trim panel because the door handle part is attached to it. Otherwise I found a company that offers a repair kit that just repairs the broken part. Plus is cheaper then buy a whole interior door trim part.

2001 Toyota Camry - Removing driver interior door panel


you can take a screw driver and pry it off. Be careful if you have power windows, if it falls right off then it could pull the wires loose. The panels have clips that clip to the door. Therefore, the only way to get the panel off is to pry it off.

How to replace exterior door handle on a 1994 Lexus ES300?


Hello: You will have to remove the door panel no matter what, If it is a broken handle there are two 10 mm bolts to remove it, but you need to check the rod that connects to it, sometimes the clip breaks and the metal rod falls out.

How to install exterior door handle on 95 Safari Van


hi, remove the entire door interior panel, keep notes and diagrams as you go, even take pics, usually the exterior handle is secured by 2 small screws or nuts, undo these and the handle will detach . there will be a small rod connected to this handle by a small clip or similar. reassembly is a reversal of the entire process, just take your time
