not sure if this will help; but you or he, should reverse the way the panel was removed (ie replace door panel, push in the plastic retainers ( you may need to buy new ones if the old ones broke ) into the holes in the door frame- reassemble the door handle and any other items that were removed and you should be done Good Luck HTH

he was replacing the door lock activator. He took it apart one day and tried to put back together the next day and forgot where the parts go. there is a black bar with rubber around it, like the rubber on the window. Can't recALL WHERE IT FITS INTO. THE REST CAN BE DONE, BUT THAT PART'S A PROBLEM. Also having a hard time putting that plastic piece back. I need a diagram of where the parts go.
