      DIY: Removing Door Panel 2006 Model

      I have seen a few posts on here of people asking how to remove interior door panel, and since there wasn't already one I decided to make a thread for those that don't know how to. I needed to fix my daughters exterior door handle as one of the bolts holding it down became loose. Anyways, here is my write up on a 2006 Hatchback model.

      First off, there are 5 total philips screws to remove, a window crank, a door latch and round trim it. I have marked the locations of these screws in the pic below.

      Use a flat head screwdriver to remove this rubber cover to expose screw behind it.

      Start from the top of this corner piece and pull, there are two clips that attach this trim to the door.

      Once you removed the 5 screws, speaker trim and window crank, start pulling the door panel from the lower left corner to unsnap it free.

      Once you have the bottom free, lift the door panel up and out of the window trim.

      And this is what you'll end up with.

      Once done, reinstall using these steps in reverse. The hardest part about putting it all back together is aligning the top of the door panel with the window seal.

      THANK YOU! Having been through this process before, it's not fun. I will be doing it again for me little baby to fix the right hand door and paint it.
      Please do not power off, firmware update pending.....

      It's been a few years since I had my Aveo's doors off so I'm not positive but it either pulls off directly or maybe there was a c-clip...

      Well if your C-clip looks like the one in the picture below, you can use a dental flosser and a screwdriver to push it off (and also back on). The dental flosser called fun flosser by dentek fit great ..
      You can expose the clip by wedging something flat like a screwdriver between the panel and window crank (also there might be a plastic ring, between the window crank and the door panel, covering the C-clip). Hope that helps..

      In the service guide for my Metro, it says to use a rag under window winder handle pulling it back and forth like floss, I imagine that would work here too.

      Sweet tip, going to remember that. In the Aveo, once you remove the clip, it pops off quickly.
