Default How do you take the door panel off?

How do you take the door panel off? I cant get my switches to disconnect, and inside door handle is getting stuck on the door panel. Please help me. I need to shoot some wd40 in my gears on my passenger side window, and install new door locks.

If your truck is like a 98, you need to pop off the upper moulding along the window. Then take off the door handle with a socket wrench. You should then be able to carefully pop off the connectors along the bottom and lower sides of the door card and lift it off. You may or may not have to disconnect wire connectors depending on your truck. Take your time and you can save most or all of the plastic pieces holding the door panel on.

I had it about 40% off, but the door handle and the electric plugs stopped me from getting all the way off.

I believe the door handle is held on with an 8mm hex head screw.

Pop the panel with the window and lock switches straight up and out. There will be a screw behind there that holds the door panel on.

Pop out the concave piece behind the door opener lever. There will also be a screw behind it.

2 or 3 screws across the bottom.

Gently lift straight UP on the door panel.
