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 show you how to remove and reinstall the front door panel. We'll show you the driver side. The passenger side is pretty much the same procedure. The only tools you'll need are a flat blade screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver.

Start by using a flat blade screwdriver and you can pry out on the outer panel on the door pull. You see these clips that hold it in; they just pull right out. Now, you can remove the inner panel by removing six screws: three small ones there, a larger one there, another smaller one there and a larger one there. We're just going to fast forward as we remove all those screws. Use a flat blade screwdriver again and pry on the panel that's right behind the door handle and that comes out. Hidden behind there, there are two more Phillips screws. We'll fast forward here again as we remove those two screws. You do have to push in quite hard to keep the screwdriver in the screw to get it started. Now, you can pull on that upper panel and it unclips from the door panel, and then unclip all your accessories in the back: power door locks, power windows, power mirror, et cetera. They just have a tab that you press and pull the connector off. Now, for the top corner, you pull on that trim panel and it pulls right off. Start at the top corner of the door panel. Pull firmly and there are just a series of clips around the outer edge of the door panel that hold it into the door. Work your hand to each clip and pull firmly and they release and then you can lift the door panel up and off.

Installing the door panel is the reverse of the procedure. There are clips on the panel that go around the outside. You want to first make sure all your harnesses come through. Hang the door panel up and make sure it goes down on the window ledge and then just set the clips by using the back of your fist, your palm. Speed things up a little bit here. Take your accessory panel and make sure you clip all your accessories into place: power door locks, windows, and mirror. Then, line it up on the door and clip it into place. Replace the two Phillips screws that are in behind the door handle and then put the trim bezel back on and clip it into place. You have your trim panel back into place. Just start putting the tabs in at the bottom and pressing it in. We'll speed up here again as we put the bracket in place that's in the door pull and then holds the other piece of outer trim. If you're just taking the door panel on and off, you probably don't need to remove all those small screws. You probably just needed to remove the two big ones. This is the way we did it this time. We're putting those large screws back in place and then put all the other small screws back in place to hold it all together. Last but not the least, snap that upper panel back in place.
