Inside the door jam there is a plastic cover/plug. REmove it. Inside the hole it covered is a torx screw head which holds the door handle in place. Loosen the screw as far as possible. (It does not come OUT. It is fixed in place and remains in it's place. only loose). Next, the door skin is held on by Torx bolts around the perimeter of the door jam. Remove all of them. (about 12 of them). Remove the inner trim panel and gain access to the mirror bolts to remove mirror. Unplug all electrical connectors. (should be only 2) Remove the door handle cable from the inside handle located on door trim panel. LIFT the outer trim panel off and away from the door. Remove the belt molding clips now that the skin is removed and you may access them. The NEW skin does not come with the side/inside rails that hold the attatchment torx bolts. These must be removed (glued on) from the original in order to glue them onto the new door skin. Use a 2 part Urathane adhesive. (Fusor is a good one). Once the glue is dry, paint the outer door skin off the car or you won't be able to reinstall the belt molding once the skin is back on the car. Or you can remove the window; (a real pain on VWs) and install the skin back on the door frame and paint it on the car. The window is a pain but painting it on the car allows you to blend the adjacent panels for color match. Reassemble the inner trim panel and mirror and there ya go. Or bring it to me at Legacy Auto Body in Manassas VA. LOL
