Tools required:

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Phillips screwdriver

  • Flathead screwdriver


Step 1: Open the vehicle's door.

Step 2: Pry and remove the small trim panel near the side mirror's mounting area.

Step 3: Loosen and remove the 10mm bolts (2) beneath the interior door pull.

Step 4: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) inside the interior door handle.

Step 5: Loosen and remove the Phillips screws (3) that line the outer edge of the interior door panel.

Step 6: You can now pry and remove the interior door panel.


A series of retaining clips holds the interior door panel to the door frame. You will hear them "pop" as they disengage, allowing for removal of the door panel.

Step 7: Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the back of the interior door panel.

Step 8: Disengage the retaining clasp that holds the locking rod (1) to the back of the interior door panel.

Step 9: To reattach the door panel, reconnect the wiring harness (1) and re-engage the clip that secures the locking rod (1) to the back of the interior door handle.

Step 10: Slide the door panel OVER the locking lever, and down into place.


With a FIRM (but not too firm) strike near each retaining clip, you can re-engage them. You will hear them "snap" back into place.

Step 11: Tighten the Phillips screws (4).

Step 12: Tighten the 10mm bolts (2).
