To remove door panels on your ’67 VW Beetle:
Step 1: Begin by popping out the small pin on the window winder. This can be done with a nail or small object. Be careful not to strip the inside of your winder!
Step 2: Next, take the two small screws out of the latch. This is covered by a small plastic cover. It pops right off with a simple screwdriver.
Step 3: Once those are removed, you can carefully start to pop the door panels off. Use a flathead screwdriver, making sure you don’t break the panels. If the clips are in decent shape, it should pop right off.
You’ll notice in these photos that mine were the OG German units. They came off with ease… well, let’s say they broke into pieces. :) I replaced them. Lastly, make sure to put a new moisture barrier on when finishing. This keeps water from hitting the panels. Any 2 mil plastic will work. I also used the Quickroof that I mentioned before to deaden sound in the door.
