Interior Door Panel Removal
What's the tricks to removing the interior door panel (pass side) from the door assy? I want to pop a dent out that's been there from the previous owner. I got as far as removing the window crank and closure pull strap. I then tried to peek inside from the bottom to see what holds it all together. I saw some sort of "white nylon" fasteners....I think. I tried a little bit of prying apart, but nothing budged. Anyhow..thought I'd ask before I broke something. I do not have a service manual. It's a '98 Sahara, if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance.

as far as the door panel goes, i believe it is held in by nylon fasteners. if you do not use a panel tool to pop them, and you use a screwdriver, etc, you run the risk of breaking the fastener, or worse, your door. they are in there tight, so go to sears, and get a "tack puller" (located with the screwdrivers, and awls) or if you can find a prybar with a forked end, that will work too. I use a snap-on panel tool made for this type of job, but it was expensive (around $23) http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/pro_d...re&dir=catalog
