How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 2003-2011 Saab 9-3 Front Door Panel (Interior) Replacement

Fits Years: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011


Tools required:

  • T30 Torx Bit/ratchet with extension

  • 10mm socket/ratchet

  • Flathead screwdriver

  • Door Panel Clip Tool (or putty knife)


Step 1: Open the vehicle's door.

Step 2: Pry and remove the trim panel on the interior door pull. Loosen and remove the T30 Torx screws (2).

Step 3: Using the door panel clip tool, pry and separate the interior door panel from the door frame.


A series of retaining clips secures the door panel to the frame. By sliding along the outer edge, you'll feel each clip. When you do, pry outward, "popping" it free. Continue this around the entire panel.

Step 4: You can now LIFT and remove the interior door panel.

Step 5: Disengage the retaining clip (1) that secures the door lock cable to the back of the interior door panel. Lift and remove this cable.

Step 6: Disconnect the wiring harnesses (4) from the back of the interior door panel.

Step 7: The door panel should now be completely free from the vehicle.

Step 8: To reattach the door panel, reconnect the wiring harnesses (4), and re-engage the retaining clip that secures the locking cable to the back of the door handle.

Step 9: Slide the panel into position, and with a FIRM, but not too firm, strike near each retaining clip, "pop" them all back into place.

Step 10: Tighten the T30 Torx screws (2).

Step 11: Reattach the interior door pull's trim panel.
