Hi, I'm Don 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're going to show you how to remove and replace the rear door panel on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe and the only tools you're going to need for this are a 7mm socket and ratchet, a flat blade screwdriver, and a putty knife.

You want to start off by removing these two 7mm bolts. We'll fast forward as Don does this. Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry right here at the top of this panel and remove it. Now we use a putty knife here to just pry back behind the door panel, see if you can get your hands back there and you want to just pull out near the clip and that will release it. You want to just do this all the way around the door panel. Once all those clips are released, you want to lift it up and off the windowsill. On the back of your door panel, you want to disconnect your courtesy light harness by just pushing the tab and pulling it free. Do the same thing for your speaker harness. Then, you want to pry out the tab on this harness and pull it.

Now to replace the door panel, just reconnect your courtesy light harness, your speaker harness, and your window switch harness. You want these clips to go into these holes right here so first just push your door panel down into the windowsill. Now just look back behind the door panel, make sure they line up, and then just hit them into place. Repeat this process around the door panel making sure that they are lining up so you don't break them when you hit it. Then replace those two 7mm bolts and replace this bezel and just hit it into place and you're all set.
