E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
removing the door panel is easy, you should have 2 plugs under the door handle, pop those out and a plug on the top of the door handle on the side then using a T20 driver and remove the 3 screws. then remove the airbag tag and remove the screw behind it. gently pry the bottom way from the door. The clips should pop and you will break some. Be careful of the speaker wires and the airbag
Make sure you buy the replacement clips before you remove the panel I bought all of them from the dealer at $0.25 a piece and my panel took 11 of them.
^^^His '92 won't have an airbag, so less to worry about. To get the trim ring off the black pull handle (that opens the door), lift it away from the door with a screwdriver, and slide it forward towards the front of the car.
