The Impreza is among the line of all-wheel-drive vehicles made by Subaru. Its unique styling targets a wide demographic. Some owners may enjoy upgrading their car or completing do-it-yourself repairs. Having the knowledge to remove the door panel from your Impreza can come in handy.

Open the door and roll the window all the way down.

Ply off the mirror cover, which is held on by a suction cup system, using the flathead screwdriver.

Remove the small screw cover located inside the lower door handle.

Unscrew the exposed screw with a Phillips-head screwdriver.

Pry up the lower handle cover, starting at the rear and working your way forward. The entire handle cover will pop off.

Disconnect the wiring by pushing the plastic release clips inward.

Pry away the upper handle cover. Slowly and gently work your way from the top all the way around until the handle piece pops off.

Using the flathead screwdriver to open a gap, pull the bottom right part of the door panel away with your hand. The door panel will release from the snap clips.

Pull the door panel up and off the door.
