Brought to you by, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the internet. In this video we are going to show you how to remove and put back on your rear door panel on a four door Honda Accord, 1998 to 2002. This vehicle does have power windows. The only tools you will need are a flat blade and Phillips screwdrivers.

Okay, there are two Phillips screws you have to remove: one in behind here - and careful with these doors. Yes, that one is broken off and the one right down in here, right underneath there. Got those screws out, take this panel shake it back and forth a little bit, pull it up, pull it back and out and then your power window has a little button right here. You press that button to disconnect that. Your door handle, slide it forward, pull it out. There goes the cover. There is a clip right here. Use a screwdriver or your thumb, pull that clip off, pull that rod up, and your handle is off. Then basically, you want to either use - you can use a screwdriver or a door panel clip tool or putty knife. Stick it in behind here, find the pins and pull them or you can just grab hold of your door panel and give a good quick tug. Some of the clips fell out but that is all right. Then your door panel comes up. Okay, your courtesy light's right back here. Twist it counterclockwise. Take it off. What you heard after I pulled the door panel was just one of these clips came out. They just go right into the door panel; clip in like that.

To put the door panel back on, go ahead and plug your courtesy light back in, make sure that's coming right up through. Put your panel up on there; make sure you have your lock coming through, up against the window and down. Now you just want to check around the perimeter and make sure that your pins are lining up. I am just kind of looking at them in the front and then I turn my attention towards the back to make sure the pins are lined up and then you just kind of tap the panel in with the back of your hand. Connect our window switch. We will fast forward through putting those screws back in and make sure you replace the little trim covers and you are all set.
