My ebay arm rest/door pulls came in (looed great!), so I took my door panels off. Easy job. The hard part was working on the back side of the panel without stretching the wires out too far. There are 3 wiring sets (blue, black & green) that clip into the bezel. Easy. But there is also a master harness end that clips into the switch plate in the bezel, and I couldn't figure out how in the heck to get it unplugged. So I just left it in and worked around it. Passenger door was a breeze! Driver door...not quite as easy. I found out that the previous owner (or his mechanic) had been in there before. Front screw on the bezel was missing, and the upper screw that holds the door panel on (the one behind the door lock) was not only missing, but the clip that the screw holds to the door was gone. (Found it in the bottom of the door. Glad I did the passenger door first so I knew what to look for!). Got it all sorted and put back together and cleaned up! Both door panels look brand new...and they work great too! Glad I fixed these, its been bugging me for over two years now!

That master plug has a clip that you have to lift up and put it in the opposite direction. As your doing that it'll lift itself out of the plug. Hard to explain correctly, but it's pretty easy. What did you pay for the armrests? Have a link? I'm gonna need another ds again.

Don't need no armrests; both hands on the wheel! ;)

Tahoe Driver Door (2).jpgTahoe Pass Door2 (6).jpgAfter all was said and done...just like new! I don't have a link because I just searched ebay and bought the ones that popped up...but there were a few more. Like I said though, inspect the pictures carefully because some sellers were selling ones with broken clips!
