Hello,from what i understand you need to know how to remove a rear door panel?Let me see if i can help you with that.There is a special to to pry out on the door panel but

if you don't have one you can use a screw driver and just give it a quick snapping motion and it will pop free. If you want to buy a door panel removal tool your local auto parts store will have one.
