Subaru Stars Door Panel Removal on an 04 STI

Does anyone know of a link that describes how to remove the door panles on an STI with pictures? I was trying to get an idea to view the process before I went and ripped it apart.

I just installed some speakers yesterday using these instructions and they seemed to work just fine.

Sweet thanks.

Just what I was looking for so between that

http://www.iaperformance.com/galler...folderNumber=19

and this noone myself and noone else should have any prob

it's pretty easy
Fronts:
1. Remove plastic ring that goes around the latch handle.
2. flip up cap on grab handle and remove that screw.
3. Pull out grab handle
4. Remove panel with window controls and disconnect wiring.
5. Remove screw that is underneath the grab handle and window controls.
6. Starting from the bottom, carefully pop out the plastic pins by pulling on the door panel (Carefully is important).
7. Once those are popped out lift the panel upwards and it will release from up near the window.
8. Do all that backwards to put it back on.

Rear:
- rears are the same except you need to remove the screw at the rear top of the door (where it meets the door jam), take out the screw and remove the plasticit screws into. Also, there is no need to remove the window controls in the back, just unplug them once the panel is free and you can get your hand back there.

We'll be adding the rear door removal instructions later on today. Only amendment from the fronts is that there is a small plastic phillips gromet on the back edge that needs to be removed.

holy ****....ok, dude you have got some business comin your way from me soon. :P and just to make sure....you say the large-thick mount rings will work with type-r door speakers, right? i'm prolly gonna go with a full alpine setup, and have been very curious about the fitment in the door speakers, since i have heard horror stories about how little room the stock gives you.

The type Rs are a bit tight in there IMO. Customers have spaced out the door panel a bit to allow for their added size. If possible I would go smaller than the Type R for ease of install.

grr...do the type-s fit ok? kinda wanted to stick with a single setup on my whole system and i'm puttingin 2 type-r 10s (still gotta figure out the box design...ugh) and wanted to stick with the type-r's in the door, but i guess since you can't actually see the darn things without doin some custom door panels (HATE HATE HATE that slanted cut on the mesh in the doors) i guess it doesn;t specifically matter the type in the door as long as they sound decent.

So the proper way of removing the door handle bezel is to pull off the door skin first? And it will just pop out without breaking?

It pops off without breaking about 9 times out of 10. 10 out of 10 if you are slow. You'll know you pulled off the door panel to quickly if the bezels shoots off. It should pop up and then be removed by hand. We now offer replacement bezels at very affordable prices for those who were the 1 in 10 person

Simply click on the photo below that you would like and you'll be directed to our 'Specials' page. Items will be shipped via USPS mail and will take 4-6 business days to arrive. Prices include shipping.

i just got my alpine type S installed yesterday in my STi. had to directly bolt the 1/2 inch spacers to the door to get the speakers to clear the door panel. not too mention barely missing the windows. but they do work. and they do fit.

In a wagon, how about the inner lining of the tail gate and the lining of the rear cargo area?
