First remove the chrome pieces in the top of the armrest since this conceals one of the screws. Be very careful with this since this is not replaceable and you will need to re-use your old one. The best thing is to use two flat head screw drivers to pry it up and pop it out. Then take the three screws out (Two are on the bottom edge and one at the top under the chrome piece removed. Once all three screws are removed you can just set your armrest to the side for now since you will re-use them. Next remove the inner door handle held on with a Philips head screw. Then remove the window handle. For the window crank handle removing tool you want to slide it between the window crank handle and the trim washer (Not between the washer and the panel itself). With that done go ahead and remove the three Philips head screws on the front of the door panel followed by releasing the door panel clips from the bottom edge of the door. Once you have all the screws and retainers off the door panel just slides straight up off the door.
Once you have the old door panel off it is always good to lay it next to the new one to make sure you have ordered the correct panel. You want to check the heat stitching, chrome trim, and holes on the backside. (You will need to attach a new window scrapper since the new panel will not come with it.)
Next once you verified the door panel is correct you want to do is line up the inner window handle pin with the hole and this is just to check fitment right now. Once you check fitment you want to pull the door back off and mark where the holes are. The best way to do this would be put your screws back in and then put some Indian head shellac on the heads of the screws. Once you have done that put the panel back in place again with it lined up and press firmly all over the door panel so that you can make sure the holes line up before you cut the vinyl.
Put the window inner scraper back on. If you slide your fingers under the edge of the scrapper you can feel the holes pre-drilled by the factory. We are not going to use them since the rivets we are going to use are slightly too small to use those holes. So you want to mark where those holes are and drill the holes for the new rivets in a different location. Lay the new window scraper out comparing it to the old one and cut with cutting pliers to match. We are going to use some clips to hold the scraper in place. Then we are going to start drilling the rivets in starting at the back edge. We are going to go all the way through the scraper and the upper part of the door panel. We are using a 1/8th drill bit for this. You want to push the rivet through with the rivet gun and we are using a 1/8th diameter with 1/8th depth rivet (you can’t use deep rivets since they won’t fit over the edge of the door). Once you do the front one you want to do the back one so that you keep a straight line and it won’t rise or fall either way. Once that is done you want to cut the holes for the door pull and arm rest. We used a scratch awl and curved scissors to do this. The holes can be a little bigger then what we did since the pieces will cover them up. The hole the window crank attaches to you actually do want to cut a little larger and pull the insulation out since the window crank handle will be the most difficult part of this installation.
It’s a good idea now to clean the surface of the door with Dyna Wipes to make sure it is clean and then with a dry towel. We don’t recommend using door plugs to hold the door in since they don’t hold up well over the years. It works best using heavy duty Velcro around the edges instead. Once you have the Velcro in place you will put the door panel back on. Now you will install the window crank handle and you want to install the plastic spacer first. You are going to need to press firmly to get the window crank to snap into place. Once this is done you want to test your window by rolling it up and down. With that done we can install the armrest back. We used two scratch awls in the upper and lower screw holes to line up the armrest. Start your screws from the center and then work your way to the ends. Once the screws are in put the chrome trim piece back in place and it should just snap in. Finally the last step is just to screw back in the door handle. Then just check the alignment, close the door and you are done.
