    Default removing door trim panel

    how do you remove the door trim panel on the left side? (my car is Left hand drive)

    in the realoem site, what they displayed is the door without the power mirror adjustments. how do i remove the one with the power mirror control

    pics would be very helpful. thanks!

    Default Both doors are the same, the power mirror switch ...

    pops out, just like the plastic trim cover in the passenger side.

    Pong,
    you mentioned some time ago that you have no experience with wrenching. But I see you are trying hard.
    You are doing well, try first the easy things, altough the door panel also can give some small headaches for the beginner.
    If any probs, just ask, we try to help.
    Step by step you will get more experience.
    Good Luck and have a nice wrenching day.
