  4.  

Integra Models
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Remove the inner mirror control knob (if manual remote) and remove the inner delta cover from the mirror mount.
  4.  
  5. Remove the screws holding the armrest and remove the armrest. The armrest screws may be concealed behind plastic caps which must be popped out with a non-marring tool.
  6.  
  7. Remove the surround or cover for the inside door handle. Again, find the hidden screw; remove it and slide the cover off over the handle.
  8.  
  9. If not equipped with electric windows, remove the window crank handle. This can be tricky, but not difficult. Install a piece of tape on the door pad to show the position of the handle before removal. The handle is held onto the crank axle with a spring clip shaped like the Greek letter Omega. The clip is located between the back of the crank handle and the door pad. It is correctly installed with the legs pointing away from the length of the crank handle. There are three common ways of removing the clip:
  10.  
  11. Use a door handle removal tool. This inexpensive slotted and toothed tool can be fitted between the crank handle and the door panel, and is used to push the spring clip free.
  12.  
  13. Use a rag or piece of cloth and work it back and forth between the crank handle and door panel. If constant upward tension is kept, the clip will be forced free. Keep watch on the clip as it pops out; it may get lost.
  14.  
  15. Straighten a common paper clip and bend a very small J-hook at the end of it. Work the hook down from the top of the crank and engage the loop of the spring clip. As you pull the clip free, keep your other hand over the area. If this is not done, the clip will vanish to an undisclosed location, never to be seen again.
  16.  
  17. In general, power door lock and window switches mounted on the door pad (not the armrest) may remain in place until the pad is removed. Some cannot be removed until the door panel is off the door.

    Fig. Typical door panel removal and retainer location-Integra

  18.  
  19. If the car has manual vertical door locks, remove the lock knob by unscrewing it. If this is impossible (because they're in square housings) wait until the panel is lifted free.
  20.  
  21. Using a broad, flat-bladed tool (not a screwdriver) begin gently prying the door pad away from the door. You are releasing plastic inserts from plastic seats. There will be 6 to 12 of them around the door. With care, the plastic inserts can be reused several times.
  22.  
  23. When all the clips are loose, lift up on the panel to release the lip at the top of the door. This may require a bit of jiggling to loosen the panel; do so gently and don't damage the panel. The upper edge (at the window sill) is attached by a series of retaining clips.
  24.  
  25. Once the panel is free, keep it close to the door and check behind it. Disconnect any wiring for switches, lights or speakers which may be attached.
    NOTE
    Behind the panel is a plastic sheet, taped or glued to the door. This is a water shield and must be intact to prevent water entry into the car. It must be securely attached at its edges and not be ripped or damaged. Small holes or tears can be patched with waterproof tape applied to both sides of the liner.

  26.  
  27. Remove the plastic cover from the door frame.
  28.  
  29. Remove the power window switch from the door panel.
  30.  
  31. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
