That's cool, but why not just get a stock replacement part?

Wouldn't the repair have been covered by warranty?

Use a trim tool or something similar to pry off the panel. But first make sure to remove all the screws. It may be a good idea to go to the parts store first and get some fasteners in case some break when you are removing the panel.

Re: Door Speaker Install
You have to remove the screws in the door handle, arm rest, inside and bottom of the panel, 4 total. Then start on the bottom of the door panel, there's an indent where you can start your tool and then pull the panel off, slowly, going from the middle out. Be careful not to pull off the panel all the way, until you disconnect the wiring harness for the lock, window and then the door lock rod.

Thanks for the info 5253, I got to repair door soon before handle falls off in my wifes hand.
Got in it yesterday and noticed plastic is now just floating in door panel. And handle feels very loose. I sure would like to know what caused failure.

wife ordered new door panel today $562.00 plus tax $92.00 to install. Pretty pricey for a piece of plastic.
