Door Panel Removal Help Needed.
Can anyone offer any help in removing the front and rear door panels on the WK2?

On the drivers front door, I removed the little screw in the door pull, then popped all of the panel clips around the perimeter, but there are several clips along the top edge that are kicking my A$$.

Any tips, or tricks to remove the panels without destroying them?

There are two screws attaching the trim panel, download the PDF here:

I need to revive a very old thread! Has anyone attempted to remove the inner door panel (the one attached to the door itself, not the inner trim). It houses the connections to the power window. I am trying to gain full access to install more soundproofing material. Anyone who has attempted this, is this a job that should be done by a DIY'er? The PDF is not very clear on how this is removed.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry brother... I don't remember what's involved in the door, itself. I was focusing on the switches & lights. I'm sure someone here can offer some help.

Everything behind the panel is pretty straightforward.

Bump for more info.

I know this is an old post but was there ever an answer on how to remove the inner door panel?
I only see 1 bolt on my 2011 WK2 and figure I need to pop the fasteners but I'm looking for tips so I don't damage anything. When using the tool to pop off the panel it feels like I'm going to break it.

Re: Door Panel Removal Help Needed.

Also a lil tip from my experience, when you go to release the pin with the trim tool, push the trim tool towards the front of the vehicle in a downward motion.

Don't try to pry the panel off by pulling up on the trim tool. I made the mistake of doing this and ended up cracking a portion of my door panel down by the built in cubicle.

It takes some force but once you get a couple started, the rest should easily pop off. Be careful when putting the door panel back on. Take your time and ensure that the snaps r aligned properly.

You can order more door panel snaps for cheap which I would recommend doing if you plan on removing all of your door panels. I ended up breaking one. Not the end of the world.
