Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove the driver's door panel on a 2007 Pontiac G6. It's pretty much the same as the removal of the front passenger door. We'll show you those little differences. This can be applied to 2005 through 2010 Pontiac G6s. You'll need a Torx 30 bit, a socket wrench, an extension, and a pocket screwdriver as well.

Take a flat pocket screwdriver and open the cover that goes over the bolt in the door handle. Use a T30 Torx bit on a socket driver to remove that bolt. I'm fast-forwarding through the removal. With the assembly out, locate the tab that holds the cable in place and pry it with the small screwdriver. With a pocket screwdriver, release the clip that holds the harness to the unlock and lock button. On the edge of the door panel, there's a little plastic rivet. You want to push in the center and then pry out the side. Pry up on the little matting that's on the inside of the door handle pull. Locate the two Torx 30 screws. Using a Torx 30 bit on a socket wrench, I'm going to remove those two screws. I'm going to fast-forward through the removal of those.

Go ahead and pull your handle and switch pack assembly out of the way. You're going to see three connectors. Go ahead and press the tabs in on the gray one, same as the black, and then for the white one you're going to use a pocket screwdriver and then just push the little tab to release it and then you can pull the harness up and out. Now get your fingers in between the door panel and the door itself and pop it free of the plastic clips that hold it in place. Don't forget about the clip up on the top by the mirror that covers the, next to the mirror, the little triangle piece there. Pop that out and then once you've got it out, lift it up off the jam, off the sill, and pull it out of the way.

Here we're just showing you the passenger side. It's a little different. You just pry a trim panel off with a small flat blade screwdriver, and then once you have that trim panel off, there are two T30 screws underneath there that hold the panel on. Also, you'll pry up on the window switch and disconnect and remove that. A close-up of those two Torx 30s.

Putting the door panel back on, connect the one connector that's supposed to be connected behind there and then pull the rest of them through where the switch pack and door handle is going to be. Once you get that done, put your unlock button through and position the door panel on the sill and press down. Once the panel is seated, go ahead and give it a couple of taps on the edges to seat those plastic clips. I'm reinstalling the Torx 30 screws, the two of them that go in the door handle switch pack assembly. I'm going to fast-forward through reinstalling those two screws. Install the little pad that goes over those two screws. Reinstall the plastic rivet that goes in the edge of the door panel. Reinstall the door handle and make sure that you plug in your unlock and lock button. Then put your cable, the ball end of the cable, into the socket there, and press down with the cable into the housing. Then press it back in. Reinstall the Torx 30 screw. Tighten it up and then close the cover.
