Removing Rear Door Panels on 2013 Elantra sedan

2013 Door Panel Removal

Short and sweet:
1) Open the rear door.
2) Pop off the plastic triangle piece by the glass in the rear. Use a flat screw driver or pry tool.
3) Remove screw hidden in door level area behind square access panel.
4) Remove screw hidden in door pull area behind square access panel.
5) From bottom of door insert pry tool (screwdriver or something non-marring) and pop off door.
6) Continue from bottom up sides popping clips (try to pry or pull straight out).
7) When last clip is released lift door panel up and off window.
8) Remove 2 screws on inside holding door lever.
- NOTE: There's a little white clip where the 2 cables go into the door handle. Undo that clip
instead of removing the 2 screws, it's a lot easier.
9) Pull door lever through door panel and it will remain attached to car
10) Undo wiring clips for speaker and/or seat heaters.

Done. If done right no clips should be broken and door panel not scratched. Reverse the steps to re-install.
