Indeed I do. And yet, when the "tire pressure monitoring system failure" warning light came on during my return from the excellent visit with youse, I just about a heart attack.

I found this one too. Really it was stunning to me that the intire cyberworld of interwebs did not have one folk who posted Accord Door Panel Removal Instructions!

Thanks for the Chilton's reminder Xeric ... I bet I can find it at the librery

It kinda depends on the options on the car. If you have crank windows, you need a special tool to take off the window crank (available at any auto repair place). It's cheap little metal thing that looks like an open ended wrench). Assuming you have power windows, though, you can pretty well just pull the panel off on most cars. They are just held in with plastic anchors (be ready to buy new anchors anyway - they never fit right again once they've been removed and they should be cheap). You will hear a ripping plastic sound that sounds much like you are trying to undo a zip tie. That is OK. Those anchors are all around the door panel (probably 20 of them). When you replace them, it's as easy as pushing the head of the anchor into a hole and lining them up with the holes in the door frame. The speaker is just held in with a few screws and can be easily replaced with a screwdriver. You can do it all yourself. It would be hard to screw up too bad.


sounds about right. One friend told me to look for little notches around the panel, indicating the tab locations. Some cars have em. And Yay, no crank door handle.

I like the putty knife idea too

I know he's done that before. I, unfortunately, am clueless.

HELP!

Anyone taken a panel off a 2002 series Accord to replace the speaker? One of my boys got overly enthusiastic and blew my awesome speaker. The distortion makes me psychotic, so I gotta replace that sucker.

But I can not figure how to take the panel off. There's no screws. No sign of tabs or release or anything. A car repair friend said it probably pops off with careful prying. I would HATE to break the panel and pay to replace it!

Any help?

I'd Google some more, or pick up a Chilton's Repair Manual (twenty or so bucks will-spent). Odds are extremely good that the door panels do simply pry off. If you do this with the tool designed for the job, and if you are also extremely careful and even more lucky, you might do it without breaking the little plastic tabs that hold it in place. But fear not--those little plastic doodads are easily and cheaply replaceable, so even if you do the prying with a screwdriver and not much luck, you'll only out literally a couple bucks. The tricky part can be figuring out how the window cranks (remember those?) and/or the door handles are attached. So there again--Google or Chilton's.

Bottom line is gonna be that (at least if it's door panels we're talking) it's almost certainly a pretty easy job.

I'll add a little. Use a stiff putty knife for prying. 4" inch wide oughta do it. Must be stiff. And the clips can be replaced easily.
