After we remove the screws, unbolt the armrest bolts with a 10mm socket.
Just below the bolts, you will see the door handle release wire. To remove it, you will see a plastic clip. DO NOT PULL IT! It pulls up off the wire side and pivots up and out of the way. Once you do this, the wire end metal will come straight out.
Don't forget to unscrew the door lock pin.
Once the screws, bolts and door handle wire are out, don't pull the panel just yet.
Inside the ashtray compartment, the amber lens pulls out with bulb left behind. Don't worry, you will be able to access this after the door panel has been removed.
To remove the panel, pull straight up and slightly maneuver the panel side to side.
If you did not remove the ashtry light, you will now be trying to hold the panel in one hand and trying to disconnect the light with the other.
Just pull ashtray wiring from out the back of the panel and we have the mirror wiring exposed.
Sooo.....just unplug and pull the wire .....but....the...plug....does...not...fit...throu gh....the hole...in... the....door.
You have to remove the pins from the harness plug itself.
Put some masking tape around the harness plug and mark each color or wire.
Next, use a pin tool and depress the "fish hook" part of each metal pin. You do not need much pressure. As you depress the "fish hook", pull gently on each wire.
When you have all the wires out, they will all easily fit through the hole in the door.
