: Remove door panel on 200 DodgeThere are 3 screws to remove. One is behind the door handle (the latch you pull to open the door from the inside), one is in the part of the door you pull to close the door, and the other is up near the side mirror (if looking at the interior of the door, it will be the upper right on the driver's door). These three screws are covered by removable tabs that are the same color as your interior. Once you remove the screws, you will need to go around the perimeter of the panel and pop it off (there are many plastic tabs). I use a flat head screwdriver to get underneathe it and start working my way around. (I've had to replace the driver's side lock twice and recently replaced the front 6" speakers).

If you want to totally remove the panel, you will need to remove the door handle latches between the panel and the door. There are two metal "arms" with white plastic connectors on the ends. One arm goes to the door handle on the outside of the door and one goes to the handle on the inside of the door. This was rather difficult since it was hard to get your hands in there. Good luck.

Also If your car has manual windows their is a small spring clip holding the window crank on. You can remove the clip easily by using a 90 degree pick to hook the clip and pop it off. When you are reinstalling the window crank put the clip on the crank first and simply pop the handle back on.

ive placed the on the same question on the 97 model same gos for all of the above models

(Manual windows)If I'm not mistaken, the 2000 model of the Neon is mostly the same in the door model from 95 till, well now. What you need to do, is take out the small door close handle(inset) with a Philips screw driver (The screw is in the very center of the inset door close handle). Then you want to push the door inward toward the outside of the car around the roller for the window and remove the Jesus clip(make sure and keep the Jesus clip lying somewhere safely because without it, you will not be able to re-assemble the roller and have it stay) and then you should be able to safely pull off the door cover.

(Power Windows)Remove the door close handle(inset) and the whole door cover should come right off with a few tugs in certain spots.(The door is held on by a few snap tight pieces of plastic around the outer edges of the door. Be careful not to tug it off too hard for fear of damaging your power wires to the power window motors. Once you have the door off a few inches, you should be able to unplug the main harness to the power window motor and be able to remove the door cover completely and lay it safely to the side.
