Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Remove the window switch. We use a plastic prying tool. You can get these from Pry up between the silver part and the black part of the trim. I'm pushing it up off of these two clips and these clips here. Push the lock in. Pull the plug out. There's the window switch. Need to remove the plastic trim that's behind this so we can get to the screw. You're going to pull out the door handle and then take the plastic prying tool, pop it out. It's not really in there with much force. Just have these four little clips here. Put that aside.

Here at the door pull handle is a little felt mat. See if I can get this up. Now we can access the screw that's in there. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the Phillips head screw that's in here. Do the same for this screw here. Need to remove this push clip here. Take a small flat-bladed screwdriver and actually push the middle of the clip in. That unlocks it. Take the plastic prying tool. Pry it up. Before you take the lower door panel off, take this upper door panel off. Trim cover. Get my plastic trim tool under here. Pry it up off the clips. With that removed, the rest of this door panel is held down with clips. You can reach behind it and give it a firm pull to pop it off the clips. Then we'll lift it up and off the doorframe.

Need to disconnect the Bowden cables. One goes to the door lock, one goes to the door handle. Pull it off like this and feed the little ball at the end out of there. Do the same for the other one. If the door clips stay in the door, use the plastic prying tool to just pop them out and then reuse them in the door panel.

To reinstall the door panel, I'm going to position and put the Bowden cables back on. White one goes to the top. Put the cable through there and clip it in place. Same for the other one. Make sure you have access to the wiring harness for the window switch, then we'll lift the door panel up.

Push it down into the opening. It's going to hook over the sheet metal just like that. Let's push it into place back on the clips. Push this trim panel back into place. It has these three clips and that clip here. Get it started. Reinstall this clip. I push it back out to unlock it. Get it started and then push it in to lock it. Reinstall the screw behind the door handle. Reinstall the screw here on the door panel. Put our little felt pad back in. Reinstall the trim behind the door handle. Just clicks into place. Reinstall the window switch. Plug it in. It'll click when it's all in place. These two lock tabs here, these ones in the back. It's going to go straight down and click into place.
