i suggest you also buy a can of PB Blaster and some white lithium grease..

Spray the PB Blaster on before removal, let it sit for awhile then after the doors come off spray some WLG to make removing the doors 100 times easier

13mm wrench. Use adhesive tape or painting tape (basically adhesive tape). Duct tape isn't good for paint. Scotch tape would probably work in a pinch (with the extra thickness provided by the tape, I doubt your wrench is going to slip).

One half turn should loosen it enough that you can unloosen the nut the rest of the way with your fingers. If it isn't, then be sure to spray the threads with WD-40 before reinstalling the doors so it only takes one crank next time you take the doors off.

It's an '06 - if he has to PB blaster it just to get the doors off, there's something seriously wrong. I'll second the motion to grease after removal, though.

A 13mm will not work because of the paint thickness. Use tape and an adjustable wrench.

make sure you turn the right direction... the threads are easy to snap off if you get it wrong. People have posted that happening.

Dang it, that's what I should have done. Would have saved me the labor of cutting them off..
