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 door panel on this 2004 Crown Victoria, and we show you on the passenger side, but the driver side is a similar procedure, and the items you'll need for this is a flat blade screwdriver, a 7mm socket and ratchet, and a T30 Torx bit.

Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry up this switch panel, and then pull directly up. Then, push the tab on these harnesses, and disconnect both of them. Pry out this panel behind the door handle, and then remove the T30 bolt. We'll just fast forward as Don does this.

Now, lining the outside of the door panel, there are three 7mm bolts. Just go ahead and remove each of those. Pry off this triangular panel, and then remove this 7mm bolt in here. Now, you can lift the door panel up and off.

Now, to replace your door panel, put those lower hooks into place, and then push your harnesses up through that switch panel hole. Then line up those other hooks, and push the door panel back, and down over that lock rod, and down into the window sill, and we're just going to fast forward here as Don replaces the three 7mm bolts along the outside, the 7mm bolt inside the door panel, and that T30 bolt. Replace that triangular panel, replace that panel behind the door handle, and reconnect your harnesses. Put the backend of the switch panel in first, then push down the front, and you're all set.
