Mmmkay, so I bought four more red LEDs to put in the interior door pockets.  The only problem is that I have no clue how to remove them.  I took the passenger side one off a while ago but I almost broke it because I didn't do it right.

Do I have to have something like this?
http://www.amazon.com/AES-Industries-7222-Panel-Removal/dp/B0025EQMBK/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1288203571&sr=8-4

How does the panel go back on?  Just push in and turn?

I guess I don't need it to come completely off, just enough so I can reach up inside from the bottom.

Thanks!

Never mind guys, I got it.  For anyone looking for how to remove the interior door panels in the future just remove the three visible screws then pull straight out on the top black corner.  On the front doors it is the little black panel with the tweeter on it, on the rear doors it is towards the back of the window at the top.

Once that black piece pops out (it doesn't come off, just out a little)then work your way from it to the other end of the window by pulling out at the window seam.  Then work your fingers around the outer perimeter of the door panel.  Every time you come to a spot that seems stuck, pull straight out and it should pop out.

Once the panel is loose from its connectors, reach up and disconnect the window wires on the rear doors, the window/lock/tweeter wires on the front passenger door, and the window/lock/rear window lock/tweeter/mirror adjustment knob wires on the front driver door.  Then rotate the entire panel 90 degrees clockwise around the door handle.  Pull up and it should be off.

To put it back on just reverse the steps and make sure to re-connect the speaker/window/lock/mirror wires.

I'm planning on doing the install later today.  I haven't had time to put wires in the doors.  I have all of my door panels off and chillin in my dining room until I can find the time to put them back on.  I'll just make a new thread in "Lighting/Body Exterior"  (I'm guessing where all of this stuff goes since it is lighting, although it is inside  :huh:)  I also put a LED in each of the rear vents.  I'm also waiting on one of the v-leds backup license plate frame which is supposed to be blindingly bright.
