1997 Volkswagen Jetta
We've tried everything but can't figure out how to remove the driver door panel. The window no longer works and we need to figure out why.
Remove the window regulator handle (usually held on by a hidden clip).
Remove the arm rest.
Remove the door lock knob.
Remove the inner door handle cover.
Using a flat screwdriver, gently separate the door trim panel clips from the door.
Lift the panel to remove it and disconnect the speaker or mirror wires as required.
Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure the sheet of plastic behind the panel is properly sealed against the metal to keep drafts out of the interior.
