Hey, everyone, Sue here, from 1A Auto. And today on our 2015 Jeep Wrangler, I'm going to show you how to remove a inside door panel. If you need any part for your car, click on the link below and head on over to 1AAuto.com.

Pull on the inside handle. Take this little trim piece off, there's a cover right here. And just pop that out. Here we are. I didn't want to break the little tabs because there are little plastic tabs. Now, this looks like these bolts do come out, but you don't need to take these out. It's actually just for aesthetic look. So, I'm going to take my trim tool, see if I can find a good spot.

Let's try right here. And pop that out. And inside here we have two screws with a Phillips and a mount. Take those right out. The plastic clips on these door panels are really tough. You think that you're breaking it but you're not. They're like a double stage pull tabs. Then, down here we have two torques bits. This is T25. And then last, inside here, the handle.

Now, I'm going to remove these, T25. And you'll see one when you open it up, it's right here. Top one holds the inner door handle trim bezel on. And then the bottom one here is a bigger bolt. So, when you take it apart and put it back together, remember the bigger one goes on the bottom. And that basically helps the panel stay on the top here. Make kind of a tight fit. There we go.

See, it's a threaded bolt, not a screw. Now, you can just grab this bezel piece. Get that out of the way. Now, here we go. All the way around there are a little clips holding this on. Once you get the first one, it's just a matter of pulling firmly. There we go. Now, you don't have to take that off, I didn't on the other side. I'm going to put that back.

That was just from the vibration. Lift up on it. And then just lift up. Now, you can see all those clips. Now, if you want to right now, you could just take your finger and pop off this little connector for the power lock. Now, we can set up panel aside.

So, we made sure that all the tabs are in place, sometimes they fall out. Look like we get them all in. So, I'm going to connect the lock switch, and here comes the fun. So, we got to get this groove right here, lined up in that groove. So, you're going to bring the panel out to you, your body. Line that up. I like to go one side first. If you're vertically challenged like me, you just have to guess at it.

So, once you've got those pins lined up, you're going to just push it down like that. And then follow the trim all around. Get some aggression out. When you hear them all snap, lock right in, you're good to go. Two main holding screws in here. Those are the ones with the Phillips head on them. Tighten those up. Now, I'm going to put the bezel in. And if you look at this, you get two back tabs that slide in first. Then this will click on right up in front here.

So, pull the handle up, line up those two bezels with that little lock notch. Pops right in. This is the one that we had, it's a T25. You have a bottom and a top. The bottom one is the bolt and the top one is the screw. That's a screw thread and that's a bolt thread. This one goes in the bottom right behind that handle. And the top one is easier to see. Top one right there.

Let's put that plastic piece back in. See how it's designed? Turns the corner right here on the handle. Then you have your lock clips. So, I'll pull that handle out, line everything up, and just snap it right in. Now, we have two screws down on the bottom here. That's the T25 again. That's the one thing about these nets, they stretch. You got one there and then one right here.

And last but not least, nice little trim piece here. Line it up, make sure it looks good. You've got your push lineup pins and a little snap around the ends. That's it. Good to go.
