#1 of 30 2000 Taurus Rear Door Panel

How do you remove the rear door panel on a 2000 Taurus. I see three screws but nothing else. I am sure there are plugs. After removing the screws can I just pry off the panel and pop the plugs

Why not go to one of the auto supply stores and purchase a manual that are published by a number of companies.
You will get a complete description of all major components and how to de & reintsall and repair.
They usually cost less than $30.00.

You didn't mention why you wanted to get the rear door panel off, but I'm wanting to do that also. About two years ago, on my 2000 SEL, the side vinyl paneling started to peel off on both sides. My car sits all day in the sun so I guess the glue got loose. I used a glue to reattach it but it popped up again. I went to a shop and they want $150 to fix it using the same material already on the door. I decided that I could do it myself, but now the glue that I had used has made the material shrink up. It looks horrible on an otherwise perfect interior. I only drive it 6 miles a day (37,000 on it now). The whole car looks new. I may just have to part with the $150 and have it done right.

I have exactly the same problem--on both rear doors of my 2000 SEL. When I find some good advice I will post it here.

we have the same problem with our taurus. All 4 of the so called leather panels have fallen off. I think I smell a class action.

My vinyl is hanging off my rear door panels also. I would like to fix this.

Have any of you guys gotten your door panels fixed? I'm hoping that a simple solution was found other than just paying a guy to fix it.

We might get somewhere if we make some noise! Any attorneys out there that want to try? I have the same problem.

A class action suit will fix the problem! We might get somewhere if we make some noise! Any attorneys out there that want to try? I have the same problem 02 Mer Sable.

I too am willing to consider joining a class action if Ford is unwilling to fix the problem. Has anyone yet approached a dealer about this problem with the vinyl material coming loose from the rear doors on the Taurus?
