Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Remove the window switch. We use a plastic prying tool. You can get these from Pry up between the silver part and the black part of the trim. I'm pushing it up off of these two clips and these clips here. Push the lock in. Pull the plug out. There's the window switch. Need to remove the plastic trim that's behind this so we can get to the screw. You're going to pull out the door handle and then take the plastic prying tool, pop it out. It's not really in there with much force. You just have these four little clips here. Put that aside.

Here at the door pull handle is a little felt mat. See if I can get this up. Now we can access the screw that's in there. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the Phillips head screw that's in here. Do the same for this screw here. Need to remove this push clip here. Take a small flat-bladed screwdriver and actually push the middle of the clip in. That unlocks it. Take the plastic prying tool. Pry it up. Before you take the lower door panel off, take this upper door panel off. Trim cover. Get my plastic trim tool under here. Pry it up off the clips. With that removed, the rest of this door panel is held down with clips. You can reach behind it and give it a firm pull to pop it off the clips. Then we'll lift it up and off the doorframe.

Need to disconnect the Bowden cables. One goes to the door lock, one goes to the door handle. Pull it off like this and feed the little ball at the end out of there. Do the same for the other one. If the door clips stay in the door, use the plastic prying tool to just pop them out and then reuse them in the door panel.

To remove the speaker, push the clip in on the electrical connector. Take it out, and use a 10 millimeter socket extension and ratchet to remove these 10 millimeter self-tapping screws here. There's three of them. They do have a Phillips head cutout, but I'm going to use the 10 millimeter socket because it's easier. Gently pry on the speaker and work it out. It does have a little tab here and you don't want to break that off.

To remove your door check once you remove the speaker, you can start by removing it from the body with a 10 millimeter socket and extension, the 10 millimeter bolt. This procedure will be the same for all of the door checks on all of the doors. There's two 10 millimeter nuts holding in the door check to the door panel. We'll loosen those up. Just be careful, because once this door check is loose the door will want to swing closed and could potentially swing open farther than it's supposed to. Remove the two nuts and we'll push the door check through, and there we have it.

To reinstall the door check you go up through the opening of the speaker and work it out of the opening of the door panel. Put the two studs through the holes and start the nuts. You have to move the door in a bit and line it up, install the bolts. Tighten this one up. When it's tight, I'll stop and then just line these up. When they get tight they'll also stop, and the door check is in place.

To reinstall the speaker you've got some tabs here. You want to make sure those tabs are towards the top, and sit it in here. Install the self-tapping bolts, tighten it up, and plug it back in.

To reinstall the door panel, I'm going to position and put the Bowden cables back on. White one goes to the top. Put the cable through there and clip it in place. Same for the other one. Make sure you have access to the wiring harness for the window switch, then we'll lift the door panel up.

Push it down into the opening. It's going to hook over the sheet metal just like that. Let's push it into place back on the clips. Push this trim panel back into place. It has these three clips and that clip here. Get it started. Reinstall this clip. I push it back out to unlock it. Get it started and then push it in to lock it. Reinstall the screw behind the door handle. Reinstall the screw here on the door panel. Put our little felt pad back in. Reinstall the trim behind the door handle. Just clicks into place. Reinstall the window switch. Plug it in. It'll click when it's all in place. These two lock tabs here, these ones in the back. It's going to go straight down and click into place.
