Hi, my name's Mike Green. I want to help you save time and money repairing your vehicle. I have 20-plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks. My company, 1A Auto, sells high quality replacement parts over the internet. In this video, I'll be showing you how to install these parts. By the end of this video, you'll know how to install them and where to get them. That's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove and then replace the door panel, drivers side front door panel on this 2005 Camry. The only tools you'll need are a flat blade screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver.

To remove the door panel, first you're going to remove a series of screws. There's one in behind here, and you'll see me pry that out. Underneath here you can pry this rubber up and there's a screw under there. Pry off this little grommet and there's a screw under there, and then there's two screws at the bottom: one there and one there. Use your screwdriver; put it in the back corner pry up and out on that rubber piece here. Put it right in the back there. This plastic piece should come out and then this piece should just pry right off. We'll just speed it up here a little bit as I remove those three screws: the one up there, the one in behind the door handle, and the one down on the door pull. Up and off, your mirror has a little tab you push on with your thumb and pull out.

There's a tab right here, push on with your thumb and pull out. You want to make sure you reset this connector by pulling it all the way back. Fast-forward here again as I remove those two lower screws. Now that you've removed this panel, you're going to see a Phillips screw right down in here; remove that. You can just grab the bottom of your panel. Pull this little triangle right out here, pull the panel up and off. Now reach in behind here and you can pull your cables out and up and your panel comes off. Put the cable in, snap it in the green one goes on the bottom, clear one goes on top. Pull your harnesses up and through then lift the door panel up and down the sill. Make sure our harness is in through. It all goes in.

Our large screw, just fast-forward here again as I tighten up that large screw that holds that arm rest brace, and then the two screws up top behind the door panel in the corner and then the two screws on the bottom of the door panel. Now our switch panel, make sure you've pulled that back, snap it right in; mirror snaps right in. Front down first punch it forward and down and then another screw. Little rubber, and then up here this corner panel you want to pull this if this clip didn't come off with your trim panel. Take it off, squeeze it down as much as you can, and it clips on right here to the panel. Looks like I put it on backwards. The less bent end goes into the panel and this goes in, okay snaps on.
