How to remove interior door panel?

hi, everyone,
I need to replace my side view mirror on the right side of my car(2010 G37 Sedan). In order to do that, I have to remove the door panel of the right front door. So far, I've only been able to find this DIY:

https://www.myg37.com/forums/d-i-y-in...oor-panel.html

but this DIY is based on a different model. I understand the basics are the same, but are there any different bolts I have to deal with? If you have done so, could you please give me some suggestions and tips?

is Remove Tool some special tool that I have to buy? I think i can just use anything that works like it.

Thank you!

p/s: in case you wonder why i have to do this:

4 Piece Nylon Pry Bar Installer Kit

These tools should work. Plastic will help prevent scratches, and they're cheap.

Thanks to everyone!

Our G37 Sedan board is awesome! I asked this question on DIY board, and nobody had anything to say. Our board rocks!

Hi, everyone, again!
I wanna replace part 5 from this photo:



However, the plug of the mirror wire(not shown in the above photo, but is shown in the next photo) is too big to go through part 5 and part 6:



guys, how do I dissemble the plug? I've tried many ways.

ok, i figured out! Let me share it with everyone. There are about 9 pins in this harness. Each one is held by some fishhook in the harness. I used a needle tool to unhook the fishhooks to release the pins:

To assemble back, simply insert all pins back in. Make sure to write down the positions of the 9 pins before taking them out. And the pins are not upside down.

hope this helps!

...or snap a couple pictures, like you did, so you can see which wires go where
...Nice video find, thanks for posting the video links.

Has anyone removed the door panel and disconnected the wiring? If so, why won't my driver side window roll up now? My passenger side works - driver side does't. I'm confused

Take it apart again and double check the connection in seated fully. Might not be fully connected.
