Snap out the door panel on the bottom by prying with a trim tool. If you dont have one, you might be able to get under there with a paint stirrer, and use something like the that. Just take it easy on it.

Once you pry out the bottom, Lift it up and over the lock mechanism.

You should still have one thing left to do: Unhook the door handle cable. (its the piece here with green) Pull out the green piece, then release the cable by rotating it out of the clip (I should have got a picture of that, but I had no free hand)

Thanks for the writeup. But an FYI, you do not need to remove the window switch panel. I just leave in in place and unplug it from the rear. Saves a step and possible scratches on the panel.

Another question, you have a VP which has manual side mirror controls which can been seen, but you also have power controls too? Err, what am I missing here? LOL

Short story: Yes.

Longer story: Yeah it is, the VP came with manual mirrors. Ive got a longer story regarding the mirrors, I had the TSX mirrors on there for a while, was going to trade the car in, and need to put them back in.

First off, Thanks for the pics, really awesome! I need to tighten the window and grease the lift mechanism. Your pics show what looks to be a seran wrap film covering all the internals. How do you get past that? Do you cut it out? does it need replaced?

What I have done on other cars is wait for a hot day, our used a hair dryer to heat it arund the seal. On the mazda and chrysler cars, the sealant has been a tar type substance that would restick after work was done. So, just warm it up and peel it back. Be careful not to contaminate it with dirt, and I think it should stick again.

Uh......cut, no, cut or damage it or you will need to replace it. It is the barrier keeping moisture from getting inside the car from the door window, etc.

Thanks for the walk through. I might use it when it gets warmed to get at these slight vibration buzzes that occur when the bass gets loud.

Too bad the headliner is nowhere near as easy.

Just a simple question, is there a cover that covers the screw holding the armrest to the door. My car just has the screw exposed on both doors, doesn't seem honda like.

If you remove that moisture barrier, you can just cover the door in Dynamat
