Inside the front door panels

There is more info here than what was asked for but I decided to cover the "guts' as a whole in one thread. The first 2 posts are a general over view and then more specific info in the later posts.

DOOR TRIM MODULE - DESCRIPTION
Door trim modules include the hardware, window regulators, latch, remote handle and links, speakers and wiring harness. In addition to providing manufacturing efficiencies, the door modules benefit the customer too. Having all the parts assembled into a module improves build accuracy and fit and finish between the components and trim as a result of greater communication between the release engineers and suppliers.

Lower door trim (from the beltline down) is molded polypropylene. The door trim is two-tone with a darker color matching the instrument panel in the upper third and a lighter shade for the lower two-thirds, including the bolster and substrate.

Items Serviceable without removing module or opening bolster:
Speaker grille
Speaker
I/s handle screw cover
Front door mirror flag cover
Fasteners accessible :
Substrate and lower window regulator screws
Speaker screws (after grille removal)
Pull cup screw
Inside handle screw (after cover removal)

Items Serviceable without removing module but with opening of bolster:
Electric window switch
Electric mirror switch (front driver door only)
Bolster trim assembly
Bolster seal
Sock seals on switches
Outside handle link
Front door lock and rod assembly
Front door latch
Fasteners accessible :
Pull cup clip
Upper window regulator screws
Pull cup screw (to biw)

Items Serviceable by removing entire module:
Rear door latch
Window regulator
Inside remote handle
Inside handle links
Periphery seal (around edge of trim)
Wire harness
