The best thing to do is not to use any chemicals, as they may stain or etch your metal. The best thing to do is have someone with long finger nails to get you started at one end and them pull the film close to the metal in one direction. If you still have small pieces you can rub back and forth with your finger to remove it. Hope this helps.

How do I remove the door panel of a 2011 Buick Regal, driver's side door?


Step by step instructions follow with pictures.

Using a plastic trim tool, remove the aluminum piece on the door handle and the two bolts underneath. (T15 I believe.)
: Using same trim tool, remove the plastic trim behind door handle and remove screw using same T15 as before.
Step 3: Same trim tool again, remove the door panel, bottom to top and lift off of the window channel. Watch for the metal clips to fall. Some will. Two go on the door panel and two go on the door itself.

How do you remove the protective film on a Silverado wheel that is peeling the wheel is very shiny underneath


That is not a protective film. The wheels are "clear-coated" and the film is the clear coming off. It is not designed to come off.

How do you replace a 1998 toyota avalon xl exterior door handle?


You have to remove the inner door panel to access the exterior handle's mounting nuts. Once you have the panel off, there will be a plastic film, or water shield, that you can peel off far enough to reach the handle ( when done, reseal the plastic with a little adhesive).. The handle is usually held in place by just two nuts which you remove, then disconnect the latch rod from the handle, and pull the old handle off. Attach the rod to the new handle, tighten the attaching nuts, and put everything back together. Getting the door panel off is the hardest part of this job.
Good luck.

Remove protective film wrap from under water dispenser faceplate


I have this same model and was facing the same issue. I even emailed Whirlpool but that didn't help.

You can remove the faceplate by removing the spill tray and unscrewing the two small screws in the bottom. Be careful not to scratch the finish while removing the screws.

The faceplate is held on by several plastic hooks around all edges. Carefully grip the bottom of the faceplate (I put my thumbs on the inside where the spill tray was and my index finger below the bottom front of the faceplate). Get a good grip by pinching the faceplate and pull down and out to remove the bottom. Then push the faceplate up to unhinge the top.

You can let the faceplate hang by the wires while you remove the plastic. I'd also use a stainless steel cleaner while the faceplate is off to get rid of any fingerprints you may have left behind.

To reinstall, hang the faceplate on the top 3 hooks making sure there is a snug fit. Then pull down on the bottom and push it in. It took me two tries to get it back on.

The plastic is stronger than it looks but you'll still have to go slow and be careful with it. Good luck!

Find and remove two screws visible on the door panel, including underneath small covers. Pop them off with a small screwdriver. Lift front edge of control panel, then pull forward and lift out. Pull upper door panel from door. Disconnect courtesy light connector. Disconnect door open handle cable assembly and door lock cable assembly. You might need to lift panel and twist to get it off.

How do I remove a door panel on a Suzuki Aerio


The top of the grab handle pops off and there are two screws underneath as MrEcko wrote. Remove the one screw from the door opener handle and slide the handle and trim forward about 3/8 inch. It will then come out and you can remove the control rod.

Mazda 5 replacing external handle on sliding door


Your door should be held on with clips. Removing the panel is sometimes hard, just take a good WIDE flat head screwdriver, and whatever tool needed to remove the screws holding the panel on, and be careful. Check underneath the panel, by the inside handle, and the arm point for screws. Once removed, take your WIDE screw driver, and don't quite pry them off, more or less try to get it underneath and pull towards yourself. There is no real easy way, just try to be patient with it, and if you hit any binds, look for more screws, its just a matter of patience for sure.

Exterior finish on stainless steel model peeling


Just a thought. Our frigidaire stainless steel refrigerator came with a temorary protective film on the steel parts that we peeled off after it was installed. Is it possible you never removed your film when you got your refrigerator? That may be what is starting to peel off now. Again, just a thought, I could be wrong.
