Please keep in mind that this might be a little different depending on your car… I will try and put exactly how to take it off tomorrow, this is more or less a how to… I would like to stress the importance of saving all the screws, and making sure you know where they go… If you have any issues, please let me know…if you need more specifics please let me know and I will try to help you out as much as I can… (I am not held responsible for any damages, I have tried as much as I can to be exact.)


This is the most sensitive part of removing the whole panel… please be careful mine was cracked when I bought the car, and it was a lot of problem when I had to work with the panel off…. Push the panel torwards the front of the car, and pry up just a little (delicately) with a screwdriver or a butterknife it will come up just a little then you will be able to pull it out gently…

Unplug the harnesses, there were 2 in mine, might be more in different cars… there’s a push button kind of thing… then you can pull it out, you don’t have to be too gentile…

Hide these wires, they can be kind of in the way when you are removing the panel…

Remove this screw… it’s a small Phillips head

Remove these covers, I think they have to be popped out gently…I am not sure since when I got my car they were ripped out and were sticking on with this paste kinda of thing….

Remove these screws, they are Phillips head screws, not very hard to remove…

Remove these pins… be gentile, they were already gone in my car when I bought it, but I am pretty sure they are the kind that are in 2 pieces, you push the center in then you can pry the outside out…

There are 4 Phillips head screws on the bottom, I made 2 pictures of them, they are hard to see and they are dark…

After all that has been done, you have to push the panel up a little, and it will pop out… then the cover where the door opening handle (inside the car) will need to be turned to an angle and popped out… well in…

Now, putting the panel back on, do everything but in reverse… the most important part is putting in the panel with the door opening and the window… you put in the piece that has the tab in first, push it in, be delicate though… than you put the bottom down, place in hole and push down a little… until you hear a snap… as long as its not the tip that snapped off…
