INSIDE DOOR PANEL REMOVAL

With the head in South Texas, the coverings on all doors now look like the skin on a Shar pei! I want to be able to remove the door panel and remove the plastic skin and replace with something different. Any help?

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

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

Need to remove driver's side front door panel 1999 cadillac deville


CAUTION: 1999 CadillacDeville is equipped with Side Impact Airbag located under the dorr trim panel. Any repair to the doors requires disarming the Supplementsl Restraint System (SRS) to prevent accidental deployment of the airbag which can cause serious pesonal injury.

1. Disable the SIR system.

2. Remove the power window switch assembly.

3. Remove the door trim plate.

4. Gently pull the trim panel inboard in order to disengage the trim fastener that retains the outside rearview mirror trim cover.

5. Remove the fasteners around the outer perimeter of the door panel by prying out with a commercially available door trim fastener removal tool. Pry only hard enough to disengage the fasteners from the sheet metal door skin. Be careful not to pry out too far or damage to the hooks inside the door panel will result.

6. Remove the door trim panel by lifting upward and outward in order to disengage the hooks from the door.

7. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the trim panel.

8. Remove the trim panel.

How do i get door panel off of driver side door to fix window back on track


remove all screws(phillips) remove the power window/locks switches carefully, all along the door panel edges there are clips that hold the panel onto the inside door skin these must be carefully pried as to not break them, they are plastic... have a screw # 2 phillips driver, flat bladed also to pry panel etc. and a pair of needle nose pliers to remove any clips that stay stuck in the door skin once the panel is removed. Look over the panel carefully and be sure you remove anything that ressembles a plastic caq/cover to ensure safe removal. Go slow do it right the first time!!! Good luck. John

Cannot remove outside door handle


If you look under the handle you will see two round flat rivet heads. You will need to remove the door skin. Roll the window all the way down. Pull the plastic trim up off the window regulator arm/handle and unscrew it, there is a screw inside the arm rest in the place where your fingers go, and another screw behind the inside door handle that holds the plastic molding in place. After those are unscrewed it is just a matter of popping off the skin with a suitable pry bar or trim plug pry bar tool (the door skin is attached by plastic barbed plugs that go around the outside of the door) Pry from the bottom 1st, then the sides. Lift skin away from door from bottom and then pull up to remove skin from door...this will release it from the top where the skin attaches inside the door next to the glass.
Temporarily attach the window handle and roll up the window. Cut the doors inside plastic liner to gain access to the inside (Duct Tape this all back up air tight when re-assembly). Keep that window handle close...you may have to adjust the window height to move the glass/arm out of your way.
Once the outside handle is drilled out (use a big drill bit and go just deep enough to break the head off then use a punch to drive out the rivet) you just have to unhook the metal arm that goes to the latch. Bolt on a new handle and re-assembly is reverse of disassembly. Take advantage of having the inside of the door open to lube up the window regulator or even spray a good dose of Rust Check etc inside to protect it from rust. Rangers are pretty bad for having the bottoms of the doors rust out.

How to open passenger side door panel


Difficult to describe without pictures & illustrations.
1. The door handle is two-piece and the top piece is pryed off/out with a small screwdriver (needs to be removed in order to access two phillips screws behind it.. one at the top and another at the bottom).
2. The door release handle (inside cover) also has a small square cover that needs to be removed to access another phillips head screw behind it... then the cover pops out.
3. Below the arm-rest, there are two more cosmetic plugs covering two more (larger) phillips head screws which must be removed as well
4. The tweeter speaker (forward upper corner of the door is also 'popped' out to allow lifting the panel out of the door frame.
5. Now, there are approx four (4) more screws which need to be removed (covered by cosmetic bottons) three (3) aft and one (1) (possibly 2) forward.
6. Finally, the door panel is held in place by several pop-in round clips. Start prying at the bottom of door panel to start popping them loose & work your way upward to the top of the door panel... once all pop-in clips are popped out, you can now LIFT on the panel to remove it from the door frame. -- careful with the wire harness & connectors inside the door panel & cavity.

To remove the interior door panel of a 1996 Toyota camry so that


My 96 Camry LE has 9 attachments that are visible. Some have plastic caps covering the screws; others do not. There are screws at the door handle, at the forward portion(with covers) when the door is open and the back edge (small covers). As I recall, there are several friction type fasteners around the perimiter of the panel that can be removed by prying carefully away from the metal portion of the door to free up the trim panel. Once these are loose, the trim around the inside door release handle (the one you pull to open the door) can be pryed in a backward motion. Then the entire panel can be removed by pulling upward and backward at the same time (it easier to do this with the window down). Then it is a matter of disconnecting the wires attached to the various controls for the electric windows and door locks to free up the panel itself. There is probably a plastic skin covering the metal portion of the door. Carefully pull that away to expose the inner workings of the door latch mechanisim. The rest of the procedure should become easy to figure out. I have not removed the exterior door handle itself; but it is a simple mechanism as I recall. Best of luck to you.
