Question How to remove door panels???

I'm gonna install my sound system soon.

I've searched all over for a how-to on removing door panels but all i got is here-and-there pieces. Is there a full, detailed "HOW-TO" on this with pics??

If not, can you guys that did it already post some info?

1.use flathead screwdriver to pop out screw cover behind handle.. already removed shown here... remove this screw..there will also be 3 screws behind this fixture holding it to the door.. remove those as well once you pull the panel off

2.use flathead screwdriver to pop out arm rest shown here... remove those 2 screws.


3.yank on each corner of the door panel.. its held on by clips. they should pop right out.. dont be scared just yank away..lol.. they'll just pop right back into place when you're done
4. lift panel upward.. it should come right off
5. disconnect all wiring .
your done!

its not hard at all.. u just have to have a little patience..
what i did was i took a 8" piece of coat hanger. i made one end into an L shape so i can pull it and the other end i made a tiny U shape..
once i feed the U shaped end through the rubber, i tie the wires to it then bend the U into an O so when i pull it back trough it doesnt get caught up on the factory wires or rubber.. it worked perfectly.. try it

i'm sure there are way to screw up your window motor or break glass, but you'll have to figure those out for yourself

The door and rain have something to do with each other.. It was the same for me when I wanted to do my installs too..
