Removing the inside door panel from your Toyota Avalon may become necessary for a number of reasons including trouble with your window, mirror, door handle or damage to the panel itself. Thankfully the process is fairly straightforward and is not difficult for even a novice mechanic. Follow a simple step by step process in order to remove the inside door panel on your Toyota Avalon today.
Things You'll Need
Locate the screws along the perimeter of the door panel and begin removing them. Make sure to place them in a cup or some other safe location so you can find them later.
Use the screwdriver to remove the screws holding the door handle in place and pull the handle off of the door. Also remove the plastic guard that surrounds the handle area by prying it away with the screwdriver tip.
Pull firmly on the edges of the door panel. There are retainer clips on the inside of the door panel that will "snap" when they have disengaged from the panel. Snap all of the retainer clips and set the door panel aside.
Tips & Warnings
- Do not be afraid to pry firmly on the door panel, but be careful not to break any of the retainer clips off inside the door.
