Door Micro-Switch


Here is how I replaced the micro-switch. Here is a picture of the switch. Here is the door. Use a torx socket to remove the handle. Remove the clip near the speaker. You can grab it and pull it out. This picture shows the torx bolt inside the removed clip. Now remove the clip on the end of the door. You can see another torx bolt. This shows the clip behind the door handle. You can see that I damaged it a little by using a screwdriver to pry it out. You can just push it an

Excellent tutorial, thanks for the great pictures.

I had to take off the interior door panel on my car to fix the interior door handle return spring. The only other issue was figuring out how to get the electrical connector for the door off the distribution box.

Mine had a little purple hinge on the connector that, once flipped backwards, let the connector easily come off. I also had to disconnect a speaker connector. Those were the only two electrical lines for my door panel.

I am assuming you have the window going back up to the top prematurely when using the outside door handle. I am currently replacing the latch mechanism which is supposed to fix that. You were SOOO close having taken all that door apart. You will need to go back in and do it all over again. The part is only $129 from SunSet (my favorite). I have the door apart and was just looking for warning info on the airbag. will post when I get it all installed, some pics if I can get them while I am in the there.

PS. the help on the electrical connectors is much appreciated. Sucks to have the panel in hand and worry how long you can hold it while in a dark garage. lol

Cheers,
