Does anyone have a complete step by step to remove the rear door panel on my 2004 745? The shade came unhooked on the passenger rear door. Thanks

Okay, thanks. I just wanted to make sure that there aren't any hidden ones other than what you have listed. I can't be buying another door panel. Thanks for the help

Is there a trick to putting it back on? I can't get the inside handle to work now.... It's like it is stuck and the handle just flops back n forth

Ideas?

You don't have the Bowden cable connected properly. You can refer to this document.

That's what I used for reference. But it doesn't really say or show what it means by "press release lever fully onto door trim panel". I push it on until I hear the clip click in place. But that's where I'm lost. It looks just like the other side I haven't pulled off yet, so I have to be missing something with the placement

When you putting the cable into the door panel handle,make sure the door panel handle is in the closed position as you put the cable until it snaps in..
