Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

To get our door panel off, there's two push clips here. These aren't the original ones. This is an older vehicle, so some of the clips are a little different. But if you have the originals, they're probably the push-in style. You'd push in on the middle. It would unlock it, and then you'd pry them out. This style has the center ones that just pop out. Then you can just pull the push clip out. Do the same for both of them.

We're going to remove this black trim piece in the A-pillar. You can probably just use your plastic prying tool. You can get this from Work it under here. Just pry it off. There's clips behind these three clips. You need to remove these two little trim covers to get to screws behind them. I'm going to use a small pick tool. You can buy this set from

Just carefully get behind here and pop it out. There's two Phillips head screws, so we use our Phillips head screwdriver and remove this one. Do the same for the other one. If you pull the door handle, there's a screw hidden behind here, a Phillips head screw. Remove that. Pop this trim cover out. Slide it over the door handle. We'll use our door trim prying tool. You can get this from 1A Auto. Going to try to find the clips. Usually you start at the bottom, and sometimes you can find a little spot where you can get your fingers under there and work it up. Then squeeze this. It should help pop it apart. Work your way along the door. Then we'll lift the door up and off of the door panel, and take it off. Then unplug it from the master window switch. Push in the lock on this side. The lock can be hard to push in. Then unplug the light. Turn the door panel this way. Push the lock in. We have the door panel.

To get to the mirror nuts, we're going to pull the door tweeter out. This truck has one. Some don't. Going to use a 10 millimeter deep socket ratchet and extension. This bolt here is for the tweeter. Undo it. Now I'll get one of the nuts off the studs for the mirror, because it's also holding the bracket for the tweeter. Pull that out. A little white plug here, push that in. Unlock the tweeter. Put it aside.

Remove these two nuts. Pull the mirror off the door. This particular truck does have vent visors. I'm just going to carefully slide it underneath the vent visor. Then the plug is right here. Unclip the plug. Pry it up, so we pry it up like that.

To reinstall the mirror, we'll plug it back in. It can only go into the connector one way. Click when it locks into place. On this one, I'm going to have to feed it underneath the vent visor, but a truck without it, it should just slide right into the openings. Going to have to maneuver it this way.

I'm going to have to go this way first, just like that. Put this little plate back in. I'll catch this bottom nut, and I'll catch this other bottom nut. Plug the tweeter back in. It can only go in one way. Going to click when the lock's in place. Going to put it back up in place. Going to get this nut captured, and put this bolt back in that was holding it. I'll use the 10 millimeter socket extension and ratchet to tighten them up. Be careful. Don't over-tighten them. You don't want to pull the studs out of the plastic mirror. If you feel them get tight, just stop.

Put the door panel back on. I'm going to turn it so I can plug the courtesy light back in. Kind of get it in here, and then it slides in. Click when it locks into place. Turn the door panel. Plug the master window switch in. Now I'll hang the door panel in place. Get the lock actuator caught. And, it's going to hang on the seal of the door. Push it down. Then we'll push it into place. Clip it in. Push clips will clip into place.

Reinstall this trim. So I'll pull the door handle out, maneuver it through the trim, and put it in place. Put the little screw in place. Install these large, self-tapping screws back into the door handle pull. We'll put these caps back on. They kind of have a certain direction they'll go, and they'll fit smooth. Same for both. Put the A pillar trim back on, it will just clip into place. And, we'll put our little push clips back in.
