Hi. I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

We're going to pull this trim piece off. We're going to use a trim tool. Go under here. Pry up. It's going to be a little bit tricky over here. We can go back here and pry up back here. Some clips that are holding this down. Grab that and pull up. You can see that these are the different retainers that were holding it down.

To disconnect the electrical connectors, we're going to push on this little lock and pull the connector out just like that, and the same on this one. Push that little lock and pull that connector up.

We're going to remove these two Phillips head screws. We'll use a Phillips head screwdriver. Pull those out. Next, I'm going to use a trim tool, there's some clips that hold the door panel on. We're going to go inside, pry out on the clips. We're going to go all the way around the door panel. Pop those all out. Now, we'll grab the door panel. Lift up and pull it out.

Now, we'll disconnect this cable, you know, lift up, pull out. Pull the cable to the side, pull the ball out. We'll disconnect this electrical connector. There's two little tabs on the side. You'll squeeze those, we're going to move this handle back, and then pull this connector out. May have to wiggle it a little bit, just like that. Pull the door panel off.

We're going to connect this electrical connector first. We're going to line it up, push it in, and then slide this handle over, lock it in place. Then we'll connect this cable right here. We're going to slide the ball through that hole and go to the side and lock that in place.

Now, we're going to push this lock knob through the hole here, just guide it through. Then line your upper part of the door panel. You have to push it in, so it locks in place, the weather strip. Once that's in place, guide the door pins in place and then push them down. Make sure the door panel's flush with the door.

We're going to install these Phillips head screws. Snug that down and the same with this one. Snug that down. Now, we're going to connect this electrical connector here. It goes to the mirror switch and this one goes to the master electrical switch right there. Line this up and lock it down.
