Hi I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing and maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my twenty plus years of experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from 1a Auto.com. The right parts installed correctly, that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video we'll show you how to remove and install a door panel on this 07 Toyota Corolla. Same as any 03-08 Corolla. Removing the door panel allows you to fix window regulators, door handles, mirrors things like that. Tools you'll need: flat blade screwdrivers both medium and small, Phillips screwdrivers, a ten millimeter socket with ratchet and extension for most of the project inside the door. Then a putty knife or door panel clip tool.

Take the medium screwdriver and a rag and you kind of pull on this trim panel here. Get the screwdriver down and behind and it comes out. Then you want to switch over to the smaller screwdriver. There's a little door here in your door handle that exposes a little Philips head screwdriver and then you're going pull off, again use your rag to protect your plastic and what not. Kind of put the screwdriver under there and pull up the arm rest base or pad. Okay and then your switch panel comes up the same way. Okay, now there's buttons. Unplug your switches and now your switch panel is off. Now you want to use a Phillips screwdriver. Okay then once those screws are removed take your rag again and a putty knife and you want to go down around the bottom.

Okay, this part goes bottom first. Slips in. Okay, plug in your door locks. Plug in your window, give it a try. Okay. Just trying the stereo, I can hear the tweeter, I can hear the speaker. That goes back down in. You're all done. We'll clean up the window and you're all set.
