hey folks! ive got another how-to here for ya incase some people dont know how to removed the door panel itself or the switches in the door. some of the steps i did are not necessary but i did it for two reasons, 1 i did some more painting of some pieces and 2 for ease removal. most of these steps apply for both the front and rear panels, so here we go.
here we have the door panels front and back
start by removing the handle. its a t40 torx bit located in the hole
you dont have to remove the screw completely just enough to remove the handle itll help you later
remove the #3 screws from the panel, center on the rear, center and top on the front. also on the front panel there are two #2 screws on the bottom of the panel.
these door panels have got to be the easiest door panels i have ever removed. simply just lift straight up on the panel. and disconnect the wire harnesses.
here is a close up of the hook system that is used
removing the rear window switch cover is easy, just twist it then push it through
to remove the cover from the switch from cover just just bend the sides out far enough to allow the hooks to move past the holes
the fronts are a little more tricky. i broke a few of the clips on both peices on the front doors, thankfully it was like one per. push the piece through but do so carefully.
youll end up with somethin like this. to remove the cover from the switch board unscrew the 3 larger screws.
