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

Hey, everyone. Sue here at 1A Auto, and today we're going to show you how to remove the lower knee kick panel on our 07 Mazda Six sedan. Need any parts for your vehicle, click on the link below and head on over to

You have to start by removing the hood cable release mount. If you can see here, you take a flat head screwdriver, and there's a tab you push up on, and you pull at the same time. Okay, so I got it. So you have to take a flathead screwdriver and slide it there, and pull down on the tab at the same time. So pull the tab completely down. When that tab gets pulled down, get your two sliding, three sliding ears, and you pull it towards you and it pops right down.

Now we're going to remove these two mounting screws. That's an eight millimeter socket. Grab the kick panel firmly and pull it out. With it hanging down, we can disconnect the trunk release button, pushing on that tab.

We're going to reconnect the trunk switch connector, lock that into place, and you've got all your push tabs location. I'm going to do the top first. Well actually, on this particular model, you might line the bottom up, then the top will slide right in, and then push it on.

And now we've got those two mounting bolts. We'll mount those. Once those are tightened, we'll grab our hood release cable and we've got those three tabs. They're going to line up. Click it into place, and you're ready to go.
