to remove the plastic panel over the a/c switches you need to first remove the radio then you need a socket to remove the a/c swiches because they are part of the panel there are 4 bolts one in each corner of the space left after you remove the radio.

1. Remove ash tray, then remove 2 screws holding ashtray body in. 2. Push switch panel to rear and lift on the front to remove switch panel. 3. Unplug switches to completeley remove switch panel. 4. With a screw driver depress the metal clip at each end of switch to remove the individual switch from the panel. 5. You then replace or repair the switch. The switch can be disasembled and repaired. Be careful not to lose the 2 ball bearings inside the switch. Remove the 2 brass rocker plates and burnish the contacts. Then reassemble. Much better than spending 75.00 for new switch assembly. 6. reassemble in reverse order.

Remove the two vertical Phillips head screws in the grab handle. Remove the window handle if equipped. Remove/ unplug the electric mirror/ window switches if equipped. Grab the doors at the bottom and pull hard. Then work you way around the left and right side of the door panel pulling on the panel. There are some white plastic push pins on the back of the panel that hold it to the door. When all of the pins are loose, lift the panel upwards and remove it. This is a less than 5 minute job.

First remove plastic panel above door to the front, covers for the bolts to the mirror. Remove courtesy light lens, unscrew one screw.

Most door panels are held on by a combination of fasteners. There are usually the standard "Push to Latch" plastic devices (that need to be pryed out to disengage them) along with a number of different sized screws. The screws are usually in and around the door handle area and there may be some behind any little "Plugs" that are used to cover screws. Once you find and unscrew all of the screws just pull the panel till it "Pops" loose. I find that it's best to go to the parts store and get new plastic parts to replace the plastic fasteners you "Poped" out when removing the door panel. The plastic parts never hold quite as well after you remove them. You will also need to remove the wires (connectors) from any and all switches that are part of the door panel before you can completely remove the panel and set it aside. TommyTrouble
