Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove and reinstall a front door panel on this 2004 Chevy Colorado. The only tool you'll need is a Phillips screwdriver.

There are two screws right down in here. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove these. Pull this up, turn it over, and the screw comes out. These disconnect by pressing on little tabs, pulling out. Disconnect our mirror switch as well. There's a screw you want to remove right in there. Just remove that screw, this bezel comes off, and it just kind of go right around the door panel. Give it a good firm quick pull and remove this up here by pulling up and then out and then the door panel comes right up and off there. There's a little connector here for your speaker. Just press in on a tab.

Before you put your door panel back on, a couple of my clips didn't come with the panel. Just pull them off with pliers. They just slide right in to the panel. Put your panel back on. Hook in your speaker. Hang the panel up right here. Put your harnesses through. Take a peak back here. Make sure your pins are going right into the holes. This, you kind of pull out on the panel a little bit in place, and put this in place. Push it in. Phillips screw. Plug your mirror switch back in and the two connections for the window switch. We'll just fast-forward here as we put those two Phillips screws back in. Tighten them up nice and firm and you're all set.
