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, we're going to show you how to remove and replace the rear door panel on this 2005 Ford F-150. We show you on the driver's side but the passenger's side is the same procedure. The items you'll need for this are a 6, 8 and 10 millimeter socket and ratchet with anextension; and a flat blade screwdriver.

Pry out on the small panel behind the door handle. Then pry up on this panel, and just pull it forward. Lift it up and push the tab on the harness and disconnect it. Then pull out on this panel and pull it free. It helps to use the flat blade screwdriver and just pry it free. Remove the 6mm bolt, these two 8mm bolts, this 10mm bolt, and then these two 6mm bolts down here. We'll fast-forward as Mike does that. Now lift the door panel up and pull it out. Then you want to pull out your door handle cable. It's easiest with a flat blade screwdriver to pry it out. Then unclip it from the door handle, and your door panel's free.

To replace your door panel, just re-clip the door handle cable into the door handle and then push it back into place. Make sure these clips stay into the door. Then line up the tabs on the back and make sure that the lock rod goes up through the door panel and that your harness for your window switch is coming up through that hole in the door panel. Then push the door panel down into place. We'll fast-forward as Mike replaces all of those bolts. Now replace the small panel behind the door handle, reconnect your window switch, push those tabs into place, and push the panel back down. Then line this panel up, slide it down into the door panel, and push those two clips back into place. You're all set.
