Great write up. Took me about 20 minutes to figure out the front door drivers side, and then fifteen minutes to do the other drivers door. The back doors take about the same. Pull the trim off the upper part of the back doors by the window. There's a third 6 mm screw hidden back there. Otherwise, the same procedure.
As for the little black piece of trim covering the bolt behind the door latch, put the trim hook behind it, slide it to the bottom and pull straight out towards yourself. Much easier than pulling up. The whole piece will pop out at once.
Fantastic, thank you very much for writing up such detailed instructions on removing the door panels. I'm having the interior trim hydrodipped. I actually pulled one off breaking all the plastic tabs holding the trim on the door (no damage to trim thankfully) I was tempted to just pull off the others, but was concerned that the plastic that broke off inside the door might cause a rattle.
There may be other threads on this, but I'm extremely bored at work. So here we go
Tools you will need. 1/4" drive socket set. And a hook type tool.(I got mine at Lowe's tool section) You may want a small flat head screw driver as well. I just used the hook tool.
On the bottom of the interior panel there are 2 6mm screws. (I only took a pic of one of them)
Then, here's where you'll need the hook tool. There's a plastic cover over the screw in the door pull. (You may want t use a small flat head screwdriver here, if you're scared of ruining anything) its an 8mm screw.
Here behind the door handle is another spot you'll need the hook tool. To reveal another 8mm screw.
Then you'll need to pull up. Straight up. As in toward the sky, not out!!!
thanks for the great write up , just installed my new tow mirrors and i to lost the nut on passenger side , but the drivers side had a retainer for it i may get one for the drivers door and put on the passenger side in the future .
