DIY: 2007+ Sedan Door Panel Removal

In order to install the remote window up module I had to remove the drivers door door panel. Luckily, it was pretty easy to get off, if you know how to do it!

First, pull the interior door handle out and pop out the finisher that is behind the door handle to expose a 10mm bolt. Remove this bolt.





Next, the trim piece that holds all the buttons (windows, door locks, mirror) needs to be lifted up. This took the longest, as I didn't want to mar the leather or damage the plastic. I found that if you start at the back (towards back of car) outside corner (away from the door) that you can slip a small pick and gently pry. I then wrapped a small screwdriver blade with foam, just to be safe, and used that in conjunction with the pick to pop the finisher up. Unplug the harnesses and then remove the 2 10mm bolts behind the finisher

Start with this corner:


Once you get the corner started the rest pulls out pretty easy:


Disconnect the wires and time to move on to the next step:


There are only three bolts that hold the panel on, and now they are all out!

The next step is to gently pry the panel away from the door. I used an upholstry removal tool from Parts Express (. For $10 you can't go wrong with this tool. I laid underneath the door and slid the tool between the door and the panel. It is important that you are under the door because you have to find the actual clip and pry at that point. If you don't, you have a good chance of either breaking the clip or breaking the mount. Once you have popped out a few of the clips you can then put the tool down and gently work the rest of the panel free. There are some extra heavy duty clips up near the tweeter in the door (near the a-pillar) so make sure you get them free before you try to take the door panel off.

With all the clips free you should be able to pull the door panel away from the door quite a bit. This is a great time to unhook the wires going to the small light in the bottom of the door. Another option is to pop that light out, but I saw no reason to do that as it was easy to just unplug.

With the light unplugged you can now lift up and away from the door to free the panel. It is a tight fit with the sail panel in place (the panel at the top/front of the door) but with some patience it will come free. Now, remove all the plugs (memory seats, tweeter, etc) and set the panel somewhere safe.



If you are installing a KPtechnologies window module the "hard" part is done!

:edit - inTgr8r:
Word of Caution!

Be careful with the tweeter speaker as you remove the panel.
The tweeter is mounted to the panel NOT the door itself.
The small gauge wire/connector is easily damaged.
& if the clip pulls off it can damage the speaker itself. (I've seen it 1st hand)

Disconnect the wire clip before you move the panel too much.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
:edit #2 - inTgr8r:
The same basic methods apply to removal of all doors.

a few more pics


JIC you need clips.....
The proper trim tool really helps save clips & the door panel.
It's basically a flat bar with forked end.

...the normal trim tool you see that looks like a garden tool with a round shaft, is not all that great for this job.

^^^ That is exactly what I said! I actually took it out and it is only about 2" deep. It looks like a dinner plate when out of the car! There is no traditional basket or magnet on it.

Awesome writeup. I bought the module just because of this write up. It makes it so easy to do. KP should do more of these. I am interested in the auto door lock after a certain speed module write up too.

Excellent work. Trying this out 2night. Wish me luck

I have installed the auto lock with speed switch on an '07 G35 sedan but I didn't document the installation very well. It wasn't too bad - most of the wires are in the drivers kick and the VSS wire is behind the radio (might as well install our navigation interface module while you're back there).

Hey do you by any chance know how to remove the washi finish panel? I tried removing this and was unsuccesful. Instead, I heard some clips pop... and im not sure if I broke the clip.. or it came undone. I stopped trying cuz I was afraid I was wrecking it.

Also, you have a remover tool that you added a link to... what tool is this? the link doesnt work anymore. thanks.

the washi finish is the aluminum trim right below the door handles.

Thats the one. Any thoughts on removal?

The door panels must be removed, then the trim unscrews from the back.

Also; edit added to 1st post.

Hello Ian - thanks for that update. Do we need to know anything else aside from the instructions represented on this DIY?

Also, does this apply to all 4 doors? Is it the same removal technique? Nothing else different?

Make any new headways in regards to your CF mod?

Thanks.

PS. Say hi to Wayne for me when he see's you just before he leaves on his trip! hehe

^ If you have the Service Manual, there is also a good re&re writeup there.
Same applies to all four, except the rears a easier with fewer electrical connections.
