Hi lminsd, Getting into your door panel is simple. Start by removing the door panel with a flat head screwdriver or door panel removal tool. Be careful not to damage the door panel as it's only thick cardboard in most cases. Then completely remove the door panel. This will expose the inner components of the door. Replace the parts as necessary and reinstall the door panel. Good luck!
