2000 f150 door panel removal

I am stumped. How do you remove the passenger side door panel on a 2000 f150 XLT. No plastics ports or anything gives it away. Seems like maybe pulling off the door handle plastic cup is the place to start? I have to replace the door lock actuator.

Pull off the cover behind the door handle, it will pop off and there is a screw behind it. Then remove the verticle trim piece that runs up the door on the rear of the door. There is a screw there. Pop up the switch panel, front first, then unplug the switches. Then pull the panel straight up about an inch and it is off. These don't use push in clips, they have tabs that slide down into slots in the door.

Sounds pretty simple. I haven't check out that rear door trim piece yet (step 2) and will look for it in the daylight tomorrow. I don't remember seeing it.

took the drivers panel off my 2001. has two sheetmetal screws at the bottom lip of the door. then take the plastic cover off around the door handle and there are TWO screw inside that. pull up the electric window/ lock panel (no screws) and fish it thru the hole sideways as you lift the door panel off---- 4 screws total.

I got the door panel off thanks to your instructions. The door actuator is tucked back in and almost impossible to see what is holding it in. I suspect one or two rivets as I see no screw tops. Probably rivets then which means drilling them out, putting in a replacement actuator somehow, then rerevitting? It looks like I cant get a straight shot at the rivet locations because of door frame parts in the way though. I may have to bite the bullet and take this one in to the Ford dealer and get soaked for 200 bucks because of the rivet situation.

you can buy after market locks for about 20 dollar each. you can install them just about any where inside the door. just hook up the lock wire to it. just be sure to check that that it locks when you hit the lock. if you have it wrong it will unlock when you hit the lock.
