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 the rear inside door panel on this 2003 Honda Civic, pretty much the same as any '01 to '05 Civic four-door with power windows.

The tools you'll need for the job are a small flat-blade screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, and a door panel clip tool, or something similar such as a household putty knife.

You'll start right up under here. There's a little trap door. Use a small flat-blade screwdriver. Pull that out and you'll see two Phillips screws back here. Use your small screwdriver. Pry it into the front of the panel, and pull out on that panel and remove it. There's two more screws back up in here. I'll fast-forward here as I remove the two screws behind the door pull, and then also the two screws that were behind the door handle.

Then, pull the door handle out. There's a clip right back here. Either use a screwdriver or your thumb. Push the clip and pull that rod up and out. Now, you're going to use a door panel clip tool, or even a household putty knife would work. Slide it back in behind the door up until you hit a clip, and then around the clip. Pull down, and then work right around the door. Once you release those clips, it can come up and out. Now, just your window switch You reach under and push up. You're reaching close to the door panel. Reach up and there's a little tab. You basically push up on this tab, and disconnect it and the panel is off. Reconnect your window switch. Make sure that your lock button is up. Flip the panel up. Put the lock button in. Push the panel against the window and slide it down into place. Now, the clips all go right in. Take your handle and make sure you pull the clip back. Slip the rod down in and slip it around to lock it. Put that back in place.

I'll reinstall the two screws here and the two screws under your door pull. I'll fast-forward here as I reinstall those four screws. Again, it's the two screws in behind the door handle, and then the two screws that hold the door pull to the panel and the door. Put this turn panel on. The two tabs go at the bottom. Put it in and lock it in place. Then, this one just goes in place and snaps right on.
