SOURCE: how do i remove the door panels off a 1990 honda accord ex 4 door

There's a special tool used to pop the door panel off the the door frame. You could use a flat blade screwdriver as well, but this tool will do a better job. Get the door trim tool at auto parts store (pretty inexpensive).

First is to locate all the screws on the door panel, usually located on or near the arm rest/ door pull and on the trim where the door handle is located. In your case there may be small "buttons" which cover the screw heads .Use a small screw driver or small pick to lift these buttons which will expose the screw head. There may be one of these buttons on the upper portion of the panel as well. You just need to look for them. Then you insert the trim tool between the panel and door frame and pry the panel away. The panel is held to the frame with trim buttons or fasteners. Sometimes these fasteners break when they are popped, but they are replaceable(again, auto parts store).
Be careful not to pull too hard or yank the panel too far away from the frame , so as not to pull off any wires (speaker wires, elec door lock, etc). Once the panel is free, then its a matter of lifting up to disengage it from the top portion of the frame, where the panel channel fits into the frame on the inside of the window.
Speaker replacement - go to any electronics store that sells auto speakers and they can tell you which speaker will fit your vehicle. Or you can go on line. Look under auto speakers or audio, and again many sites have this fitment info for your vehicle.

SOURCE: Hi, I have 2004 GMC Sierra

It would depend on if the amplifier is also a factory one, if so, it can be a somewhat difficult task, usually on the inside of one of the rear panels. You would need to remove them in order to access the amplifier. It may also be that your speakers are blown, these would be easier to check than the amp would be, and it would be good to eliminate this as well. You will need to take the door panel off and by looking at the back of the speaker you will know if it is blown or not, you can also take it in and they will be able to tell you right away if they are blown. You can do this for free at most pawn shops. The other option is that a fuse may be blown. If your car does have the factory amp installed it will have a fuse for it. You can find these either under the hood of your car or below your steering wheel on the left hand side, somewhere close to the door. If you have a manual to your car it would be easier to look up the fuses to locate exactly where they are at. Once you locate the fuse, you can use a fuse tester or pull it out with needle nose pliars and see if it is blown or not. I would bet on it being a blown fuse. Hope this helps out somewhat. If you need further assistance please let me know.

SOURCE: need to remove door panel ,putting in new speakers

Hello jaustin1475,

There are some slight differences in door panel removal procedures, but for most vehicles, it is a relatively simple task. You may wish to invest in a "panel popper" tool available here at Or if you purchase your speakers from, they also have some specialty tools, including a panel removal tool.

While the basic procedure is similar, the location of screws and clips are different, so I highly recommend that you search for a vehicle forum specific to your vehicle. Most every forum will have one or more posts detailing how to remove the door panel. Here is a link to a post on the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club (commonly called NASIOC), that shows the procedure for a Subaru Impreza. There are literally dozens of forums. In addition to NASIOC, there is (for the Forester), (for the Baja), (for all Subarus). And then there's (for the Nissan Frontier). There are forums for Fords, Chevys, and many, many for Jeeps. I'm betting that there is a dedicated forum for whatever you drive and that someone has probably posted photos of the entire door removal process.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2008 GMC Sierra Extended Cab. How do I reset tire sensors?

If the tires are the same and the pressures are good it should reset itself.. If it does not you may have a bad sensor. Being an 08 I would have the dealer do it since it could be PCM related

This is a pain of a job. you need to remove the drivers seat and then remove the drivers door panel.
Unfortunately there is no way to remove the door panel with the seat in place without risking damaging the panel.

My 2004 gmc crew cab, when i hit the lock button the 2 rear doors do not lock. every once in a while they will lock. where do i start to look for the problem? thanks

Maybe the actuators (electromagnetic) are going bad. I would try to replace that part first if there is intermittent or weak operation of power door locks.

How to remove a front door panel from a 2001 GMC Sierra

On the inside trim, you can 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.
