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, I'm going to show you how to remove and reinstall a rear door panel on this 2003 Subaru Outback, pretty much the same for any 2000 and 2004. It is a pretty simple procedure. The only tools you'll need are a flat blade and Phillips screwdriver.

Start here, carefully and if you want use a rag, so you don't affect your vinyl. Pry out firmly at the top and then pry up and out at the bottom as well. You're really trying to pull up this way and then there's a little tab back here, disconnect that. Take and pry off this bezel around your inside door handle. There's a little button here; pry that out. There's a Phillips screw here and a Phillips screw here: remove those. Once you remove those, then reach in behind the panel and pull firmly, push that through, and lift up, and your panel comes off.

That little ringing you heard is just a clip from the window switch; it fell off. You just want to push it on there before you try and put that back together. To put this back on, take your harness and make sure it goes through there, line it up by looking at the inside door handle, make sure the top latches down. There are two screws that hold the panel in place. Fast forward here as I just install those two screws. Bring this out, connect the harness, and put it down into place. Put this bezel back on and put this back in place.
