  1. Lift the plastic cover on the front of the armrest with a flat-blade screwdriver. Underneath the cover, there are two screws securing the armrest to the door. Remove the screws. Do not remove the screws that secure the window switch to the door.

  2. Slide out the plastic insert at the top of the door handle. Remove the screw underneath the insert.

  3. Gently pry the inside door panel from the plastic grabbers along the top and sides of the door with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up and away from the door.

  4. Tip

    Keep all screws and covers in a lidded container while you are performing repair tasks so that you can find them easily when it is time to reinstall the door panel.
