How to Remove the Door Panel of a Lincoln LS

by Allen Moore

The door panel on the Lincoln LS contains the window and lock switches as well as the inside door handle. The panel is a key component of the car’s lush interior trim and also acts as a soundproofing barrier for the passenger compartment. If any of the door’s interior components should fail, you’ll need to remove the door panel to access and replace them.

Step 1

Pry out the trim covers behind the door handle with the trim tool. Remove the screws behind the handle with the Phillips screwdriver.

Step 2

Remove the screw at the top trailing edge of the door panel with the Phillips screwdriver.

Step 3

Remove the three screws located along the bottom portion of the door panel with the Phillips screwdriver.

Step 4

Pry the door panel away from the door with the trim tool.

Step 5

Insert the head of the trim tool around each trim pin holding the panel in place. Pry the pins loose with the tool.

Step 6

Grab both sides of the door panel and lift it up and off the door.
