HouseCallAuto 4/9/2011Buy a shop manual for 03 Mini Cooper. There is no substitute for a step by step with pictures. Why did I have to tell you that?
HouseCallAuto 4/10/2011No offense meant to you. Sometimes I type and send and then think :-) It was meant without malice. It is just that when we as mechanics remove door panels on any car, generally we don't always remember where each clip and hidden screw is and certainly it would be risky for you to rely on our memory of "sort of how to do it". One left out detail or don't remember exactly what holds it on and the door panel can easily be damaged permanently. I often look up the procedure when I am beginning work on removing a door panel just as a precaution. We don't have the procedure available to copy and paste to you as an answer and we cannot include pics in any answers as well. This is primarily a diagnostic assist site. If I knew how to remove a door panel with details I would have told you. Personally, I have never had to do a single job on a Mini yet.
