An annoying knock/vibration has developed in the front passenger door. Its either the door panel or something inside. How difficult is it to remove and reinstall the panel? What parts will I need? Thanks in advance!

Have to remove the door pull trim(pry top out it has 3 small spring clips)
Pry up pass heater control panel from the frt(the rear slides under)
Pry door light(red/white towards lower rear) from the frt, it has a plastic springy that has to be pushed in a tad. Be careful those lights suck and break easily.
Unhook all wires as you go and take note what goes where.
There are 2 large Phillips head screws to remove. One where light was and one under tamp control panel.
Here's the tricky part... The door panel lifts up. Once it is up an inch or so it will tilt out so longer bottom holders can slide out(unhook tweeter speaker wiring before tilt out) DO NOT JUST PRY THE PANEL OFF OR THE CLIPS BREAK.

I bet the stupid clips holding the panel on have broken as it is very common.
I use mastic tape under the clips to keep from rattling also usually after they get fixed.
Good luck.

I forgot to mention popping the triangle trim piece loose by the mirror. It has one plastic push pin deal.
