Hi, I'm Mike 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, I'm going to show you how to remove and then reinstall a rear door panel on this '99 Olds Intrigue, same as any '98 to '02 Intrigue. The tools you'll need include flat and Phillips screwdrivers, a T30 Torx driver, and either a putty knife or a door panel clip tool.

Okay, to remove this rear door panel, you want to pull up on the back of your power window switch plate and then pull it back. Turn it over. Use a flat blade screwdriver, push on, and there's a tab here. Push on that tab and disconnect it. Okay, then right here behind the door handle you'll see a little slot at the bottom. You're going to pry the trim plate here up.

Okay, now behind there's a Phillips screw, a T30 Torx screw there, and a T30 torx screw up through there. We'll pick up the pace here as I remove those two T30 Torx screws, and then remove the Phillips screw behind the door handle. Okay, now, it's held around the edges with clips. Start with a putty knife, and you can put it in there. Move down until you feel a clip. As you pull it out, if you want, you can actually continue with your putty knife, or use a door panel clip tool. Get right around that clip, pull, and then you can see it comes off. Use your clip tool or putty knife to go around the edge of the door. As your come to a clip, pull it off, and then the door panel comes right off.

Okay, to put it back on, easy enough. Put your clips in. Press through there. It looks like when they put this together they bent some of the clips, so I'm going to bend them back. Just, kind of, go back in here. Put some of the clips right into their holes. You have to just kind of reach in there and guide them a little bit. Put that right back in. Torx screw. Reconnect your window switch.
