What's up guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video, I'm going to show you how to remove and reinstall the inside door panel on this 2015 Chevy Silverado. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to 1aauto.com.

I'm going to take a straight blade screwdriver--there's a little cover right here. Just get in under here. Pull that cover off, and then right here there's a cover. Pull that cover off. Now I'm going to take a seven millimeter socket extension and a ratchet. I'm going to take this screw out here. And there's two in there. And there's also one underneath here. Take all of those out. Now we want to take some trim tools. We want to get underneath the door panel. Just pry it out. There's a bunch of clips that hold it in. Like that. Once you get those all out then we can slide the door panel up, just like that.

Pull the lock rod out of the way. This cable--want to just push down on this button, slide the cable out and then pull the ball out. And this wiring harness, you can pull on that wire retainer. Then disconnect the connector right there. Push down and pull it up.

There's this weatherstrip piece or window strip that goes at the base of the window. You're going to slide this off the door panel and then there's these little clips. There's three of them. You need to pull those off. Going to use a trim tool to try to slide these out. Sometimes you need some, like need another pliers. Get in there. Slide that out. What you do is you just get in there and just try to squeeze this so that you can pull it off. Squeeze that. Pull those out. Now these clips are going to go right here, just like that. All three. Put the clips on first and then we'll take this weather strip or window strip, slide this in position right here and just press it down. Just like that.

All right. Now let's hook the switch up. Just push the connector on. And this wire is going to go into that. That retainer's going through that hole. Take this cable. Put the balls through there and then slide it over. Lock that in place. Take the lock rod, we need to slide it out, thread it through the hole. Once that's thread through, we get all these pins lined up.

Everything's lined up, and you can just push the door panel on. Now there's four screws we want to put in. There's one right there, two right here and then one down below. Install those four screws with a seven millimeter socket and extension. Then I'm going to take a ratchet and just tighten these down. Just snug.

Then I'll take this cover, slide that in there. Lock it in place. There's a cover right here, does the same. There you go.
