How do you take off the door panel on a 2000 Ford Focus?
To take off the panel, first go around the outside of the panel
and remove 6 screws. Two at the outside, two at the hinge and two
on the bottom.
Next, there is a small pop cover under the door opening lever,
take this out and remove the screw. this will allow you to take off
the cover around the door lever.
On the main door handle there are two holes underneath, take a
square head screwdriver and push into the holes and click the
catches. This will pop off the cover on the handle. Under this
cover there are two big square head screws that attached the handle
to the door frame.
Once removed the door cover will just fall out.
