    Door panel


    Depends on what door trim you are trying to replace. If you are trying to replace the door trim on the front doors you need to remove two screws from behind the casing around the door handle and then remove a screw from the bottom left of the door and then there will be a screw on the left of the door as high as the arm rest on the door. Finally pull up on the door panel and out to remove the panel. Remove the harnesses and you are complete.

    If you are trying to remove the rear doors you need to remove a screw from the bottom of the door again near the left side then remove the screw from behind the casing that surrounds the door handle. Finally pull up on the door panel and out to remove the panel. Remove the harnesses and you are complete.
