Default Help with removal of door interior

Has anyone removed their drivers door interior? How hard is it?
Ever since my car was hit way back when, the drivers side door interior has never fitted like it should (sticks out a little bit).
So I'm gonna try and fix it myself, see whats the matter and hopefully get it back in right

I know someone who is a pro at this.

I watched mine taken off to tighten up my window. THANKS DAVE!

There are 2 screws I believe, under those plastic covers, and there is one snap up closer to the hinge.... I can't remember if the screw where the handle is needs to come out also.

Then the door is held on by just plastic snaps on the bottom. So pull on the bottom and then lift up after all the snaps are loosend. It hangs from the top and snaps on the bottom. But be sure to get all the screws out first before you start pulling.

1 - pull out the round gray "holder thingy" near the hinges(on inside) - careful not to loose the black part the round thing sticks into and spreads

2 - remove 2 fascias that hide 2 screws - remove screws - they're are "hard" to unscrew be careful not to strip em

3 - Pop up window/door controls - don't scrape your armrests!! - disconnect them at push/clips

4 - go along bottom of door panel and pull toward yourself - all the little clips will pop and the entire bottom of the panel should be loose...nothing will fall or be lost here

5 - Now just push up and the whole panel will come off...not easily but it will come...

It's really easy, i've gutted my car a few times and it's all pretty simple to get apart...it's a little bit of a pain getting it back together due to aligning the metal tabs that hook onto the sheet metal(top of panel)...but not too bad...how do ya like those ridiculous chunks of foam in there?..

Just a note, before you put it back on, go over all the screws on the back side of the door panel and gently make sure they are snug. Mitches had all of them loose and everything was rattling around. Also the panel comes on and off easier with the window all the way down.

Any prying on the interior visible Gray panel will leave marks so be carefull.
To help start the bottom tabs to come off after all the other screws are out, there is a had pull hole at the middle on the bottom that you can start to pull out there first. Then work your way around with the rest of the tabs.

Sorry about the confusing run-on sentances I am tired.
