In this video, we're going to show you how to remove the front door panel on this 2003 F250. This is the same as pretty much any '99 to '07 F250 or F350 Super Duty.The only tools you'll need are a flat-blade screwdriver and a seven-millimeter socket with a ratchet extension.

If you wanted to prevent the battery from running down if you have the doors open for extended period of time, just disconnect your negative battery cable. Using an 8mm wrench, loosen up the nut and then pull the cable off.

Using a small flat-blade screwdriver, take this lens. Pop it off. Mine is actually broken. It should pry out here. Pop it off. Here, you're going to do the same thing. Just kind of pull up with your hand or use your screwdriver a little bit, right in the front. Pull that up. Pull it forward. Then you disconnect all the harnesses. There are little push tabs on them. Push on the tab with your thumb. Pull the harness here. Push on the tab. Here, tab here. Push on it. Remove it. The same thing here. You pull down this trim panel. It's got two clips that hold it on.

Now there are two seven-millimeter bolts, one right there and then one right there. 7mm socket with a ratchet and extension. A ratchet work as well. Fast forward is I just removed those two bolts. Once those two bolts are out, just lift up on your panel. Bring it out. Behind is your courtesy light. Just turn it counterclockwise and pull socket out. And your door panel comes off.

To reinstall your door panel, what you want to do is take your bottom clips, and they're actually designed to just kind of go on here, and the rest in place. You reach down and put in your courtesy light. Turn it clockwise to lock it in. Then make sure all these harnesses come up through. Press it against. Lift it up a little bit, making sure your door lock comes through. Press it against. You kind of lift it just up a little bit. Push it in and bring it down on, making sure it's nice and tight against the door. Nice and tight against the door over here.

Let's speed up again. As I take those two 7mm screws, put them in and then tighten them up nice and firm. Now I'm going to clip the molding on up top to cover the mirror mounting holes. Then take my switch panel. Reconnect all my harnesses. Then I slide the tab back into the back first. I'm making sure no wires are getting pinched in there and then clip it down in place, and it's all set. If you disconnected your battery, then reconnect it and tighten up the 8mm bolt.
