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

I’m working on the rear passenger door. I’m going to remove it. We're going to use these plastic trim tools. You can get these from 1AAuto.com. Pry out this plastic piece that's behind here. Pop the trim tool in here. I’m just going to hold open the door handle. That pops it right out. Put that aside. Remove the screw with a Phillips head screwdriver.

Use our plastic trim tool again. Slide it under here. Pop this handle cover off. Just kind of work it underneath. Put that aside. There's two screws, Phillips head. Remove those. If that screw stays in there, that's fine; we can grab it after we pop the door off. With the three screws removed, we can pop the door off the clips. There's a bit of a lip here, just on the inside of the door. Pull behind it, and I can reach underneath. You just want to reach around the edge of the door, and we pick the door panel up and up from the door. There's the screw that fell out.

Pull the door handle and lock mechanism out, just pops it out, and it'll sit there. Unplug the harness for the window switch. Push in on the lock. Put the door panel aside.

These push clips, they're not damaged; they just popped out. One stuck in the door. I'll use a trim tool to pop that one out. This one went down here and came out, so I'm just going to put it back in. It just slides back into place. It can be reused. I've just got to get that one out of the door.

To remove this window switch, we take a plastic prying tool, pry out and try to feed this up, and it pops right out of place.

Take the window switch. These tabs will line up with this opening here. I’m just going to push it straight in, and it's going to lock.

Take our door panel, make sure all our clips are okay. Take this. It's going to slide in like that. There's two pins in the top and the bottom that match this, it pops into place. Don't forget to plug in your window switch. Nothing like putting this together and then having to take it back off to plug it back in.

There's a groove in here with some clips. They're going to snap into place on here, so I'm going to start with the door panel kind of on the high end. It might be easier with the window down, but you can do it with the window up. You're just going to snap it down into place, then we're going to go down, and push all the clips in.

Start with the small screw that's behind this. Put the plastic cover back in. Start by pushing that clip in first. Then it'll snap in on the back ones, so just open the door handle. Snap that into place. Reinstall the other two screws in the door handle. This just kind of goes straight on.
