Tools required:

  • T20 Torx Driver

  • Flathead screwdriver

  • Door Panel Clip Tool (or putty knife)


Step 1: Open the vehicle's door.

Step 2: Pry and lift the small trim panel inside the interior door pull. Remove the Phillips screw (1).

Step 3: Pry and remove the small trim panel inside the interior door handle. Remove the Phillips screw (1).

Step 4: Loosen and remove the Phillips screws (4) that line the bottom and side of the interior door panel.

Step 5: Pry and remove the small trim panel that covers the side mirror's mounting area.

Step 6: Using the door panel clip tool (or putty knife), pry and remove the interior door panel.


A series of retaining clips hold the interior door panel to the frame. You will hear them "pop" as they disengage.

Step 7: Disconnect the locking rod from the back of the interior door panel. Also, disconnect the wiring harnesses to fully remove the panel.

Step 11: Secure the new interior door handle to the interior door panel by tightening the T20 Torx screws (2).

Step 12: To reattach the door panel, re-engage the locking rod to the back of the panel, and connect the wiring harnesses.

Step 13: Move the panel into position, and with a FIRM, but not too firm, strike near each retaining clip, "snap" the panel back onto the door frame.

Step 14: Tighten the Phillips screws (4) along the outer edge of the door panel.

Step 15: Tighten the Phillips screw (1) inside the interior door handle. Reattach the trim panel.
