Front Door Panel Removal

Ok. So i posted this exact How-To on G6Performance, but i decided to post it here as well, as i've see it been asked a few times on here so i thought i'd make it easier for people to find. Especially if they are a member of G6P.

Tools Needed:

Flathead screwdriver (the pointier the end the better)
T30 torx wrench

Removing the panel:

Before the panel can be removed you must start by removing the bolts holding it on.

Begin by locating the black rubber square in the pocket on the arm rest



To remove it wedge a flathead screwdriver under it and pop it up



Undo the 2 T30 Torx bolts holding the control panel down.



Next is to remove the control panel. To do so, pry it up with a flathead.



Once its up, undo the 3 connections and put it somewhere.




Next pry open the cap in the door handle cubby (if someone can post a way to not break it that would be great)



Remove the T30 torx bolt behind it.



Next remove the button thing on the side of the door panel.



To remove it, push inward on the inner circle and pry it off with a flathead

To undo the bottom portion of the panel, start by pushing the flathead behind the panel



Pull the screwdriver away from the door to release the pin. Do this along the bottom of the whole panel until all nine pins have been released.



Finally before you can remove the panel. Stick the flathead behind the piece holding the tweeter and pop the pressure clip loose.



To lift the panel off put your hands on the side off the panel and pull the bottom away from the door. Then lift up, releasing the panel from the channel at the top of the door. Lift it over the top of the lock pole thing.

The latch cable will need to be removed next. It is simply held on by a clip.



Once the cable is released the final thing to do is disconnect the final remaining connections.

Once the connections are disconnected the panel can be completely removed.



Doing the passenger side door is basically the same. The only difference is that the bolts are in different locations and there are only 2 connections

One of the bolts is in the door handle pocket, just like the drivers side



Once again i managed to snap the little cover off again

To locate the other 2 bolts, you need to remove the metallic grey trim. Begin by sticking the flathead in the side of it



Pry along the edges until you can pull it off

The 2 bolts will be located under neath. Remove each of the 2 T30 torx bolts.




Just like the driver side, you next need to undo all the clips along the bottom of the panel as well as the little button thing on the side and the pressure clip by the tweeter. Lift it up to release it from the channel and disconnect the cable and the connections.

When putting it all back together, just reverse what you did and it should go back together no problem. Just make sure (this took me awhile to figure out) that when you put the button thing in that you make sure the inner circle is popped out



Insert it with it popped out and then push the inner circle in.



If there is anything i missed or anything i should add, let me know and i will do so. As well if something should be worded differently let me know.

No problem guys. That black box is the speaker crossover. All component speakers have them. They just make sure the right frequencies go to the right speaker.

When are you doing your speakers? I can do a how to in 2 weeks

Well right now they are the stock setup but id probably do the rear 6x9s first...but ive looked and they dont come out through the top or the bottom so i assume i need to pull something up... (the right speaker is blown...ive just been avoiding it...Also, do you know if the bass from my trunk has anything to do with my blown 6x9 (like the vibration or the air in the trunk?
sorry for all this But i do appreciate the how 2 i was wonderin about it

for the door handle cubby cover if you pry it with a small screwdriver on the flat endge of faceing towards the front end of the car then you can pry the tab open and move it out of the way this is not intended to come off but will swing out of the way. if you pry from the oppisite side then you end up breaking the plastic swing arm

Could you guys confirm that the plastic tab is supposed to fold open towards the flat edge? (as shown with the arrow in the pic)

I'm going to try very hard not to break these suckers when I open the doors up very soon

Thanks!!

Post a pic so we can see what's yours looks like. You probably just didn't pop some of the pins back in properly.
