I dont have pics... but I just did it on my 99 to put in sail panel speakers. Mine had 3 phillips head screws on the outside edges of the door panel. Remove those. Then with a tiny flathead screwdriver remove the little panel behind the door handle. If you dont remove that it'll break when u take the panel off (I should know lol). There is another screw in the hole where your hand goes to close the door. Then with a bigger flathead just slide it in between the door panel and the door and gently pry out along the panel. Once its all off just pull the panel up over the pop up lock and disconnect all the harnesses. To get the mirror pop out the sail panel by using the small flathead to take out the middle where the speaker is... theres a 6mm bolt behind it... with another one visable once the door panel is off. Unfortunatly, thats all i know as I didn't have to remove the mirror. Hope that helps! Good Luck!

Remove the cover from behind the inside door handle by gently pulling it out to release the retaining tabs


Remove the pull cup retaining screw cover and...


... remove the retaining screw from the cup and lift the cup straight up out of the door panel


Remove the two sail panel/speaker grille retaining screws and...


... remove the panel/grille from the door


The door panel is retained to the door by 11 retaining clips


Carefully lift the door panel off of the door and...


... detach the electrical connectors from the switches and remove the panel from the vehicle

I got the info from Chiltons Online...Sometimes its a little off...but generally gets you pointed in the right direction...I believe Autozone repair info uses Chiltons library.

Could someone re-link the pictures? They're dead links now.

Chilton and Haynes aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

I dont agree. I got a Haynes manual for my 1994 ford taurus and before I started replacing most of my engine components, I read that manual alot and it helped me understand how to do everything. it was clear, informative, and accurate. I give a couple thumbs up to the Haynes manual.

Trim Panel, Door


Front


Removal and Installation

1. Remove cover behind inside door handle.

2. Remove plug button from bottom of pull cup.

3. Remove screw retaining front door trim panel.

4. Starting at bottom of trim panel, carefully remove door panel by pulling away from door.

5. Disconnect electrical connectors as necessary.

6. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Tighten door panel retaining screw to 1.4-2.0 N-m (12-18 lb-in).


P.S. - Daniel, there is no such thing as a Taurus SOHC engine. You most likely mean the Vulcan single cam overhead valve (pushrod) engine.
