It has been awhile but I believe you get started by prying off the cover of the inside door handle, it just snaps on. There are a couple screws remove them. Then it seems like there are about three more attatchments along the bottom of the door panel. Remove the cover and and the screws, then I think that you just kind of pull and and lift. You should be able to reach in and disconnect the wiring before completely removing the paneling. It has been several years and I'm telling you from memory. But the key is finding those hidden screws.

if you push your door panel back and look down in between the door panel and the window handle there will be a little clip that you have to remove. sometimes you can get it with a screwdriver but they make a special tool for it. most body repair shops or car audio shops will have them and sometimes you can get them to pop that clip out for you for a tip.

Remove the armrest, door handle, and window handle. You will need a special tool to get the window handle off. They're cheap and you can get them at any auto parts store. Remove the screws at the bottom of the door panel then CAREFULLY pull the retaining clips out of the door by sliding a screwdriver between the panel and door where the clips are (you'll find them at the front and back) it is VERY easy to tear the backing of the door panel when removing them, so be careful and patient. Slide the door panel up to unhook the top of it from the door. Remove the window regulator bolts and carefully slide the rollers out of the window tracks. Carefully remove the window from the top of the door. slide the window regulator out.

remove arm rest screws, remove window crank handle( using small hook pull clip behind handle toward knob), remove door lock knob, remove door handle frame, using flat screwdriver wrapped in tape and starting at the bottom of the door gently pry the trim panel away from the door ( plastic clips are tough sometimes) and work around till all are out, lift panel off door.

If there is no faster head visible then it likely is attached with a clip on the backside of the crank handle. slip the handle between the handle and door panel to remove the clip.

Push the door panel in around the window handle and use a screwdriver or a piece of wire with a hook to pull the clip off....it's in behind the handle.

To take the window handle off of the 2005 Kia Spectra, you will first need to remove the interior door panel. This panel pries off of the vehicle using a flat screwdriver or a prying tool. Then, access the door handle by removing its cover and then remove the screw at the center of the handle.

there is a small clip between the handle and door panel that u have to remove it is easy if u have a small pick to hook it with then to install just place clip on handle and push on the window regulator shaft.

You must replace the handle, they are made of plastic. For the inner- remove both screws in the door panel[in the grab handle] remove the trim from the door handle. Remove window crank and with proper tool remove door panel. Tool is cheap. With panel off, there will be one rivet holding old door handle in place. Drill out rivet [ 3/16 ] and slide whole door handle assembly forward. Carefully remove door and lock rods and reverse the process to assemble. Outer- One bolt is behind door panel and the other is on the outside edge of the door right behind the handle. Simply remove bolts, remove handle and swap door lock into new handle and replace.

First remove the Window Crank Handle. Then remove all of the screws you can find, 1 for the door release, 1 for the door grip, and 4 for the door panel. Pop loose all of the lower door area, and carefullyremove the door panel. Remove the plastic behid the door panel, SAVE IT!!. With the window all of the way down, remove the screws that hold the window in and remove the window. Revers to reinstall, being sure to locate the new window into the grooves for that.

unscrew the handle and slide it out, unscrew the two screws behind it, rip off the bottom panel and pop off the two clips/holders on the mirror adjuster on the inside, then you need a window roll up clip remover to remove the clip on the window roll up handle, then unscrew the lock pusher by the window and rip that panel off
