How to remove 08-11 front door panel

there has been a few threads made asking this question. i posted on this on another thread, but i mine as well share it with all 2nd gen owners

First pull the mirror control cover by pulling straight out

pull the cover on the handle. be careful clips can be broken(i have broken one on my handle)

There are 2 t30 torx screws you have to remove under there
Then pull up the window control module. carefully pry up the side closest to the back of the car first. another t30 torx is revealed.

screws on bottom and back edge of door.


once all of that is removed pry straight out from the bottom and work your way up, be careful you will be prying on your paint. start pulling out(it may be a bit tough first time) once all clips are released tap it straight up over the lock and disconnect your wires.
also your moisture shield under the door panel(the piece of plastic dont tear it and put it back, it does have a real purpose)

any questions let me know

You have manual rear windows? Is that a base model thing?

Wait ... you have a coupe don't you? I was thinking that the front two windows on your car were power and the back two were manual
