Door panel removal tips?

Does anyone have any links or similar on how to remove the door panel? My passenger side door has a really annoying rattle and I want to try and find out what it is...

Thanks

there is a DIY too on this on this forum, do a search for door card removal DIY. Crimson did a good DIY too.

Its scary when you first do it, but once you get going its cool

It takes two minutes.


Pop trim off.
Undo the torx screws.
Pull card away from bottom and work your way round.
Now when the card is just attached to the top by the window, pull up and away.
Undo the wires holding the light, speaker and the handle cable.

To put back on do it all in reverse.

On the passenger side you need to pop the cover off the handle and undo the screw in that too.

I followed this guy.



Went without a hitch. I'd recommend buying trim tools. They are well worth it.
