Remove door panel

12 posts in this topic

Has anyone removed the front and rear door panels off a MK2 focus? trying to replace the speakers. I can't see any screws so I assume its all clips but without knowing where the clips are i'm afraid of snapping something!

any pics or advise on doing this would be much appreciated

:lol: the whole world loves a comedian especially when he falls flat on his !Removed!. The original post suggested it was different to the Mk1. If you need any googling lessons fella, PM me always here for you

In answer to the question

Firstly get yourself some trim removal tools. You can find a cheap kit on ebay. They are made from a rigid plastic and wont take lumps out of your trim or paint.

1. Remove the tweeter cover at the top of the door next to the mirror. Easiest if you drop the window and do this from the outside in. Remove the top cover and then remove the section attached to the door by unscrewing and unclipping it. This will make removing the card easier and also easier to reinstall.

2. Lever the lower section of the interior grab handle using a suitably sized trim removal tool. This is held in place with a few plastic tabs and should come away with a little persuasion.

3. Once removed you will find two previously hidden bolts. Remove both of these.

4. Unplug the switchgear for the switches in the door handle.

5. Starting at the bottom edge closest to the rear of the car, start levering the door card away from the door to release the clips holding the card in place. These are pretty stiff on the first attempt so expect a few expletives. Work your way round the bottom of the card until all clips are free the bottom. There are further clips at the rop of the card which you can now free up using a suitable lever and inserting it up inside the card from the bottom. The card should bend up enough for you to do this.

6. Once all clips are free, pull the card out and up to remove

No offence to handel18 but you do get some people on these forums that haven't a clue about cars.

In some of the later mk1's the screws have caps on them so he may not of recognized as to what they are.
