Hey friends, it's Len here at 1A Auto. Today I'm working on 2013 Ford F-250. We're going to be removing the door panel. It's going to be a very easy job. I'm going to be the guy that shows you how to do it. If you need any parts, you can always check us out at Thanks.

First thing we're going to want to do is locate where all our mounting bolts are. You'll feel them along the bottom. I've got one right here. Come across, just keep feeling, see if I feel anymore. All right, so I've got the one like I said. Now I'm just going to come right here. This piece right here should just pop right up, so I'm just going to try to use my trim tool, see if we can get it to pop up. You don't want to use something like a screwdriver in this instance obviously. I mean, it's your truck, you can do what you want, but I would go with something that isn't going to break anything. There we are.

We'll just take this, check our wiring harness. I always check them, make sure there's no funny colors, rainbow colors in this instance aren't always the best. Here's the little clips. Make sure they're both on there. Those just press into these little slots. We'll set this aside. I've got my 7-mm. I've got my one screw here, so I'm just going to take that out, turn it to the left. You can use a ratchet, but it's a 7-mm head. I'll put that where I can find it.

There's another screw head there, and another one located right there. I'll just pull these out. Get that out with my little magnet. That's the same. Just grab the other one. All three are the same. You can't mix them up. There we go. All right, so we know we've got all our mounting screws out. There's nothing else that can be felt. Okay, now I'm going to grab my trim tool. You can use something like this. Or if you have a skinnier one, it might be easier to get in, to get it started. I usually start at the bottom. Just try to weasel it in under there. I'll just give them a little tug. So this doesn't feel like it's a pullout. If it doesn't feel like it's pulling out very easy, then it's probably a pull-up. All right, so let's try that. There we are. That's an easy way to tell if you try to use your trim tools and it doesn't want to pull out easy, then it's probably a pull-up.

Here we are. Now we're behind here. We've got our wire off right there. We've only got one speaker wire left. There's a little push in the center right there. I'm just going to squeeze it, pull that off, this little push. Now we've got our door panel off.

We've got our door panel. We've got our slot right here. It's going to go over that. And look at all of our little prongs going all the way around. All those need to fit into these, all right, and then of course this. This is all going to get reattached. Remember when we were taking it off, this went right here. So I'm just going to latch this in now while I'm thinking about it. It's easy to forget things like that.

I'm going to see if I can't grab our wire and get this up to where we're going to need it, because it's going to be super hard to get to once the door panel is all back together. Want to get our lock. Odds are you're going to push down on the lock right now and lock your door, so make sure that you have access to getting into your vehicle at this point. Just make sure everything is pushed in. Okay, let's give it a feel. If it feels like it's bulging out anywhere, I probably don't have to tell you, but it's probably not latched in right.

Door lock still works. I can hear it over here. That's great. Got our window switch assembly. I'm just going to go ahead and take that. I'm going to listen for a click noise. That sounds great. We've still got our little mounting hardware here. Get it lined up, bonk, bonk, bonk, bonk. There we go. Okay, we've got a hole here, and two holes there. Get our three screws, we'll get them in. I'm going to crank this puppy up a little bit. Okay.
