Removing the Door Panels

Tools Required


Step 1

  1. Remove the two screw cover caps below door handle.
  2. Remove the two hex screws.

Step 2

  1. Remove electric accessory panel from door. Do this by prying the bottom end out first and then sliding downward. Be careful - there is a plastic piece that hooks behind the door panel.
  2. Unplug.

Step 3

  1. Gently pull top of tweeter mount (8-speaker system) loose, but don't remove. This piece is attached to the door panel and can break off.

Step 4

  1. Gently slide door panel tool behind door and onto door clip.
  2. Pry until panel loosens (The rest of the pictures demonstrate the locations of the clips).
  3. Unplug light and tweeter.


  1. There is one clip which will break. It appears to be designed as an indicator.
  2. The picture of my tool (though fuzzy) is actually a window handle remover. It works for me, but I still suggest using a real door panel tool. They look very similar.
  3. I suggest having a new set of clips on hand. Even if none break, they just don't hold as tightly as new ones.
  4. When putting door back on, line up all clips before locking the door in place.
  5. For those looking to put 6.5" speakers in doors, I don't recommend doing it. The mount would have to be remolded. Besides, any good set of 5.25" 's sound just as good, as long as you have a nice sub.
