The entire door? There are bolts on hinges.. simply unbolt them but remember there is a wire loom to be dealt with, you have to pull inside panel off and disconnect wiring. Be careful with glass.


Also, take a sharpie pen and trace the outline of the hinge before you take it off. Also, remove the bottom hinge bolts first and either prop up the door from underneath or have someone hold it level. If you bend the bottom hinge by removing the top bolts first you'll have a nightmare getting the door lined up correct.
