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 are going to show you how to remove and reinstall a rear door panel on this Dodge Ram. The items you will need include a 10 millimeter socket ratchet and extension and a Phillips screwdriver.

Open up your door. You will need to remove the inside door handle. There is a 10-millimeter bolt right in here. Remove that. As it's coming off, just pull it right out with the bolt in it. Now remove this Phillips screw. Now just lift up and off. Bring it up and out. There is a tab right on top of your window switch harness. Pull that off.

We're going to remove the door lock bezel. Just push in on these tabs, push it up and off. The two tabs on the bottom you just kind of preliminarily line up and rest right there. Then as you bring the panel close, connect your harness. Push your door lock locked, push the panel on and then down. Unlock your door, put the bezel back into place, reinstall the Phillips screw that holds the panel, reinstall your door handle, have your wrench lined up, basically kind of hook it into place and tighten it up.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
