Drivers door panel pops off after shutting door.

Recommended Posts

It looks like the clips that hold the panel on are there, but not working properly.  There also seems to be some foam perimeter seal along the edge that may be preventing them from fully inserting in the metal part of the door.   I thought at first in might be the weight of my 9mm in the armrest bin, but I moved it and the panel still comes off.

 

I found the posts on door panel removal, but nothing that has addressed this issue.

 

Thanks

9mm in arm rest. LOL

after replacing the micro switch in my door handle, my panels wouldn't stay on either. The clips got bent somehow and wouldn't hold anymore. I ended up buying new clips from the dealer and installed those. Took my time putting it back in and haven't had any issues since.

Sure enough, I tried to remove one today and it was so brittle it broke. 

 

Now there are part numbers for white and grey.  My panel seems to have both colors installed.  Is there a difference other than color?

Got the clips and there is a subtle difference between the 2.


999 507 505 40 Grey clip exists on my car on the upper part of the door panel - above the carpeted area


999 507 582 40 White clip -- I found these only on the carpeted part of the door panel
