Step 2: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) inside the interior door handle.
Step 3: Loosen and remove the T30 Torx screws (2) inside the interior door pull.
Step 4: Lift and remove the power window control panel. Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the underside of the panel.
Step 5: Loosen and remove the T30 Torx screws (2) exposed by removing the power window control panel.
Step 6: Pry and remove the trim panel near the BACK of the window.
Step 7: Using the door panel clip tool (or putty knife), slide between the panel and the door frame. As you slide around, you'll feel a retaining clip â€“ when you do, pry outward.
You should hear the pin â€œpopâ€ as it disengages. Repeat this process around the outer edge of the door.
Step 8: You can now lift and remove the interior door panel from the door frame.
Step 9: To reattach the interior door panel, simply re-engage the retaining clips with a FIRM (but not too firm) strike near each retaining clip.
Use the larger guiding pins (2) to ensure proper placement.
Step 10: From here, simply reverse the removal process.
Reattach the trim panel near the window, tighten the T30 Torx screws (4), reconnect the wiring harnesses and â€œsnapâ€ the power window plate back into place, and finally, reattach the interior door handle's bezel and tighten the Phillips screw.
