    I was putting in the puddle lights from abstract ocean and accidentally got one of the lights stuck in the door. I put one in the wrong way and when I tried getting it out, I accidentally pulled the plastic cover off. When I tried to put it back on, the light went up into the door so now I need to take the panel off to get it out.

    It happened to me too. I didn't have to take the whole panel off. I just used the spudger make some space at the bottom to get a few fingers in to push the cable back out of the hole.

    I plan to take off the door panels and add some Noico sound deadening material. I would like to see exactly how to take the door panels off and put them back on without damaging clips... the video is pretty good, but there are a few steps missing. I also want to get to the wheel wells front and back to see if I can insulate to reduce road noise.
