Isuzu Rodeo: how to remove door panel to 2001 isuzu rodeo

Customer Question

how to remove door panel to 2001 isuzu rodeo

Welcome! I'm Ron Z! I will do my best to answer all of your questions. Please remember to RATE my answer!

To assist in removing the door panel, and to minimize the chance of breaking any retaining clips, there is a special tool: Trim Stick. You can usually rent this tool from any local big chain parts store. I've wrapped up the procedure to remove the panel into a PDF file for easier viewing/printing.

I need more info on step 8, removing trim panel.

Expert:  Ron Z. replied 1 year ago.
Cursor down in the PDF. Step 8 says to remove the door panel... the "bulleted" items below step 8 tell you how to do this... "Remove 5 fixing screws (1) (3)" etc. The (1), (3) are shown in the image above step 8, and the clips (2) are also shown.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

How do I find the 5 screws? I don't see them. What do I need to remove and how?

Expert:  Ron Z. replied 1 year ago.
In the image.... #3 and #1 are pointing to the 5 screws and their locations. #2 and the Circles are pointing to the clips and their locations.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I got the 3 where the speaker is, but not seeing 2 screws where #1 is. Do I have to remove armrest or handle and how?

Expert:  Ron Z. replied 1 year ago.
Where the lines from #1 are pointing are the screw locations. There very well may be plastic "caps" that you may need to pop off to gain access to the screws.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

There are no plastic caps. I see a door handle where #1 is with no screws or plastic caps. Does it pop off and how?

Expert:  Ron Z. replied 1 year ago.
Ok. I am going to opt-out and forward you to another Tech that may better assist you. Sorry for the inconvenience. Sit tight one sec... someone will be right with you...
