Here are the items you'll need for this repair: T20 Torx socket, 1AAuto Trim Removal Kit, Phillips head screwdriver

The four plastic push pins on your door, there're three on the outside edge here, and one on the inside edge, all you have to do to remove these is pop the centers in. You can use a screwdriver to do that and you don't have to knock them all the way through like that, you can just pop them in. Use one of your 1A Auto trim tools to get behind it and pry the clips out. So there are four Phillips head screws along the bottom of the door panel and one up in the corner here in that four. There's a little tab under the door handle that you have to pry down with a trim tool and there's another Phillips head screw in there. Our piece of trim is missing but you'll normally have to pop down a little trim flap here to access that Phillips head screw.

Once you've got everything exposed, you can go ahead and remove all of those with a Phillips head screwdriver. Once you've got all your screws off, you may not even need your trim tool, pull the panel out and release all the clips, then slide it up and off the door lock. Pop the tab over for the latch rod on your door handle, rotate it out of the way and slide the latch rod out of the pole. You can then reach the connector for the rear window switch and unplug it and remove your door panel from the vehicle. Using a T20 Torx screwdriver, remove these three screws from the back of your interior door handle. Now push in the tabs. It may help to have a trim tool here. Push in and release them from the plastic. Work them out however you can.

Reinstall your interior door handle. Make sure you line up the tabs and reengage them. Reinstall your three T20 Torx screws. Reconnect your window switch and your latch. Remember the rod goes in, clasp snaps over it. Make sure that the lock slides back through the panel in the appropriate place. Line up your panel, snap the plastic clips back in. Reinstall your four plastic push clips. Reinstall the four Phillips head screws along the bottom edge of your door panel, the one hidden under the handle, and the other one hidden behind your door handle, and you're good to go.
