Hi, I'm Don 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 re-install the front door panel on this 2005 Hyundai Elantra. We show you the driver side. The passenger side is the same procedure and the only tools you'll need are a small flat blade screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver.

I'm going to use a piece of cloth to protect the paint while I pry the corner piece off here. I'm going to take off the two trim covers here, the center pieces. Use a tiny flat screwdriver or you can use a little pick and just pry into the side. Pull it out. Do the same for the bottom.

There are two trim covers underneath the door handle. Use your flat blade screwdriver to pry at the seam. Gently pull them out. There are two screws behind there. You've got the screw covers off, exposing all nine of the screws. Two on the back of the door, two on the very bottom of the door, two on the side, one in your handle assembly, and two below your grab handle. We'll just speed things up here and a Phillips screwdriver is all you need for all nine of those screws. After you take the screw out that's behind the door handle, you do have to pull the little bezel out.

I'm going to give a little tug to the handle, get my fingers behind the panel and just pry apart. There's a clip down here and I'm going to do the same over here where the clip just came out. I'm going to lift the panel up off the door. There are three harnesses. Two go to the window switch pack and another goes down to a door light at the bottom. You'll find a tab right here. Press it in. It will click right out. There's another tab here and the last tab here.

I'm reconnecting the three harnesses that go to the switch panel and the light. I'm putting the door panel back on. I'm going to go up above, push down so it sits on top of the door frame and then give it a little tap to the lower clips and start back with my Phillips screws. We'll fast forward again here as we put back the nine screws. Just remember the only thing is with the screw that goes behind that door handle where you open the door, put the bezel in first, and then put the attaching screw in. Once you have all the screws in, then, just remember to put the small trim pieces back in that cover the screws.
