Reply to Cheeko's Post: Cheeko, thank you -- however, in the diagram you sent regarding removing the bezel, there is a screw cover and screw in the "LOCK" button on the door. The lock button on our door doesn't have a screw cover and screw. The door panel is being held by something behind that button that we can't release. Can you help?

Hi, if you look inside the handle area you should see a circle, it will be flush with th rest of the bezel panel, take a pic with a sharp point and stick it beside the circle and pry out, thanks

Reply to Cheeko's Post: I have run my hands all over the inside of the handle area -- there's no screw cover. I even checked the other front door panel (since the electric lock on the door we're working on isn't working), and couldn't find a screw cover there, either.
Hi, I have checked all the way up to 2000 year model, but doesn't show one without the cover screw and I don't recall one , I will have to do some checking at work tomorrow and get back to you,thanks
