Subject: re: E36 door panel removal
Tim Tsai asked how to remove the E36 door panel.
To remove the trim surrounding the door release lever:-
Using a small screwdriver or fingernails pull the rear section
(the widest part) away from the door by about 2mm. This unlocks
the assembly. Then slide it off towards the front of the car.
You'll need a Torx 20 bit to undo the 2 screws under the door
pull after you've removed the screw covers.
Now open the door, sit on the floor, put one foot on the door frame,
grab hold of the door panel at the bottom and pull like f&*_at_.
Lift the trim over the door lock button and unplug the speaker and
door mirror control wires (front doors only).
Hope this helps
