  1. Position the window fully downward.

  3. Remove the manual lock knob (1).



  1. Remove the inside handle bezel from the inner door panel in the following order:
  1. Hold the inside handle to the open position.
  2. Insert a flat bladed tool at the front lower corner of the bezel.
  3. Pry outward on the bezel.
  4. Remove the bezel from the inner door panel.
  1. Remove the screw attaching the inside door handle to the sheet metal.



  1. Use the J 36796 or J 38778 in order to release the eight retainers around the outside edges of the door trim panel.



  1. Slide the door trim panel (1) upwards to release it from the following:
    • The alignment datums (4)
    • The eight retainers
    • The arm rest steel retainer clips (3)
    • The inner belt molding (2)
  1. Disconnect the door trim panel electrical connector.

Installation Procedure



  1. Slide the electrical connector (4) into position on the water deflector (1).
  2. Remove the steel retainer clips (2) from the arm rest pull handle brackets.
  3. Slide the steel clips (2) into the nylon nuts (3).



  1. Install the door trim panel to the inner door in the following order:
  1. Position the door trim panel (1) downward over the following:
    • The manual lock rod

Caution: This screw must be properly installed. This screw is critical in order to maintain retention of the inside handle to the slider-glide mechanism. Failure to properly install this screw may allow the door to unlatch during a collision, resulting in personal injury.

  1. Position the manual lock knob (1) into the bezel opening until the locking clip (2) bottoms out on the bezel.
  2. Engage the locking clip (2) located at the front of the lock knob (1) to the lock rod.

To remove the front door panel, remove the plastic surround from the inside door handle. It contains the seat switches and door lock switch. It is held in place by four pressure clips, so you should be able to pull straight out. Remove the wires to the switches. Next remove the window switches by inserting a small, flat screwdriver under the forward end by the window lockout switch. Carefully pry upward. Remove the wires if you want to make removing the panel easier.
The triangular panel on the inside of the rearview mirror will need to be carefully pulled inward but NOT REMOVED. You might be able to do this with just your hand. Remove the white/red marker/courtesy light at the back side of the door panel. A small flat screw driver at the back side should release it. Remove the wire. There are two phillips screws that need to be removed. One is in the opening where the window switch panel was, the other is behind where the red/white light was. After those two are removed, grasp the door pull handle and pull STRAIGHT UP. Don’t try to pull inward.
