    Difficulty (1-5): 2
    Time Frame: 20 Minutes

    Step 1: Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the small plastic flap in the door handle area. Behind it is a screw that will need to be removed with a philips screwdriver. You do not need to remove the plastic piece, just the screw.


    Step 2: Use a flathead or your fingernails to pry open the front portion of the long door handle. It should come off easily.


    Step 3: There are two screws behind that panel on either end of the door handle. Once those are removed, slowly pry along the edge of the panel and pull away from the door. The rest of the panel is held on with plastic plugs that should come right out.


    Step 4: Unplug the wires behind the door panel from the panel itself. There are two sets of wires on the driver side and one on the passenger side.


    Step 5: You should now be able to remove the door panel completely. Installation is the reverse of this.
