Removing The Door Panel.

Recommended Posts

I want to check out the stock speaker location. Ive found the two covered screws in front, and the other obvious screws. Is there anything else I need to know? Anything with the door handle? Just dont want any surprises if I unscrew the panel.

Thanks, that does show me where all of the screws are, but it doesnt really answer my question. Can I just remove the screws and pull the panel off? Or is there something else I need to know? Im sure this is a ridiculous newbie question, but well.................thats me!

There may also be some plastic clips on the outer edges of the door panel that you will need to carefully pry. Have AWJ verify this, but I believe it’s factual, most cars use a clip system as well.

Good luck.

Yea, it will be clipped. Strategic pulling will be necessary. Good luck. Try not to break anything. There is usually 1 or two that break though :angry: . If you are you really careful, you may get lucky and come out with no broken tabs. :magic:

Go to this site. It's PERFECT...

It doesn't get any more straightforward than this.

Once you get all the screws out, I found that prying either the bottom edge or front edge to be the best place to release the clips. The door panel is very easy to remove, it's been 3 times for me now...

AaronE,

That is a great site you refer to. Can you help with a couple of questions.

First: What are they saying when it says "1) Pry center insert from door open cavity." ?That looks like something I am going to break or smash somehow.

Second: Have you mounted a replacement speaker in that location, (model and size)? How much fabrication was involved if you went with a bigger size?

B)
