First un screw the manual door lock pin. Then there are screws follow me the bottom that the panel, friend will require a device to remove the clip for the manual window crank. It is in careful! this clip is like a spring and will shoot off choose a bullet, took 30 minutes to discover it in the driveway. Over there is a screw behind the door opener handle and also one where you pull the door shut too if i remember correctly. There are several clips that wil organize the dashboard on, double check to make certain you have removed all screws. Then pull up and out. The totality panel have to come free. Currently there will be a thin plastic membrane, it can be peeled back and still be sticky sufficient to put ago when you are done. Take an extendable magnet and also fish out the bolt and also or lock mechanism. When this happened I believed someone had actually tried come break into my car, turned out there was only among two screws installed from the factory. I checked out the hardware store and also found a matching bolt and also re fastened the lock mechanism. That was 3 years ago. No troubles since.
