Step 2: Loosen and remove the Phillips screws (2) inside the interior door pull cup.
Step 3: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) near the door latch.
Step 4: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) near the bottom REAR corner of the door panel.
Step 5: Using the window crank removal tool, pry and remove the manual window crank.
NOTE: After removing the window crank, depress the retaining tab on the crank to "reset" it for installation later.
Step 6: You can now pry and remove the interior door panel from the door frame.
A series of retaining pins secures the door panel to the frame. You will hear them "pop" as they disengage from the door frame.
Step 7: To reattach the door panel, move the panel into position (using the door handle as your guide). Once in place, a FIRM (but not too firm) strike near each retaining pin will "pop" it back into place.
Step 8: "Snap" the window crank back into place.
Step 9: Tighten the Phillips screws (4).
