Okay Guys I have a 2008 facelift model and need to change the speakers in the door panels without breaking anything. So far I have removed wing adjuster screw allen behind window switch both allens under door pull and self tappers (2) inside door pull. Nothing moves is there anything else I need to undo before I start popping the plastic plugs The armrest on the facelift appears integral to the panel. Any help appreciated Thanks.

Thanks so much to Johnhififan - the cunningly hidden bolt under the window switches was absolutely crucial I have added a set of photographs of the removal process on flickr (it turns out that I cannot post links yet since I have only just subscribed which is fair enough - just search on flickr for fiat doblo door removal) I added notes which pretty much overlap Johns comments. Im not much into DIYMechanics
Quite easy to do pop off any trims such as the exterior mirror trim which sits over the edge of the panel then just have a good look around the panel and you will see the various screws and bolts holding the panel the door pull etc. take them all out and then pull the panel away from the door this will release the trim clips hidden behind the panel (do this carefully just in case you have missed a
The bolts are the torx type theres a rubber bung under the door pull open handle.
Yes the clips are on the panel I use a wide screwdriver or better still a thin wide piece of metal near clips and gently lever apart if your lucky you may not need any new ones but they can break easily.
Brains playing tricks on me Lancia had electric windows. must have been my Uno retrimmed the door panels on that one. Pain in the back end anyway.
not too difficult door card held on by a series of screws (most of which have trim covers) and the usual trim fir tree buttons and the like. Basically unscrew it lever it off as carefully as possible. You might find a trim removal tool useful I just used a scraper or screwdriver. Then fit in revers Speaker cover pops off speaker held on with a few screws. Haynes has a reasonable guide on it

Heres some piccies which might help. Someone had that same problem quite recently where the arm pops off the motor linkage and it needs a VERY firm push to click them back into place again. __________________ 02 Stilo 1.6 Dynamic 3 door 99 Bravo 1.2SX Last edited by Deckchair5 09-05-2007 at 1809 .   Quote   09-05-2007   4 karen310 Get Your Own Title Join Date May 2007 Posts 8 Thanks 0
from moving off the bearing. Note how the tie wrap is routed with the tie wrap tang down through the hole around the link and then back up through the hole again. The link rotates around 90 degrees the same as the sweep of the wipers so it should keep it all together certainly no worse than just hoping it stays there in the next heavy downpour of rain __________________ 02 Stilo 1.6 Dynamic 3 door
sorry for reviving this old post. I recently had the same questionproblem and couldnt find any information on how to remove the inner doorpanels on a series 3 Doblo anywhere so I decided to bite the bullet and make this write-up for anyone needing to do this in the future. To access the front speakers you will have to remove the complete inner doorpanels. The standard speaker is pop-rivited to the
Then use the cord to pull the rubber into the side and top flange. The cord will pull from the bottom flange but you have to come out at a bit of an angle. Make sure the rubber is well greased up (silicone grease is best and wont harm the rubber) and you should have no problem. Mk1 to mk2 dashboard As to swapping over a mk1 to mk2 dashboard Im not sure but I think it is possible. I think as well fiat
the front door speakers are 6 and a halfs on the 3 door gp i replaced mine on the same day i got the car which was in march i had to take the full door panel off on mine my gp is 1.2 active may be diffrent on other models but my doo rpanel had to cum off

small wire horseshoe clip that holds each handle on. The wire is about the thickness of a paper clip (theres a hint in case you lose the clip ). There is a special removal tool you can buy which makes the job really easy. httpwww.diseno-art.comproductst...oval_tool.html See httpholdenpaedia.oldholden.comRe...Window_Handles - I know that those old Holdens have almost nothing in common with our fiats
Sorry about the late reply. These are quite easy to replace but you will have to get the new one painted first. Remove the rear interior door panel (Allen keys and Phillips head screws plus removal of window winder clip behind the handle (the tools for the winder handles are easily available from most parts places). As you pull the door panel off disconnect the inner handle from behind the door panel.
Rip off I drove to motor factors and picked through a box of roll pins until I found a near clone 0.50 GBP. But the origonal did not look damaged apart from smear of insertion or removal. And the replacement (or origonal) was impossible to insert as the strap dissappeared into the door and I could not pull it back out far enough so Ive ordered the fiat part as a door strap failure normally damages two panels badly. Gave the strap fastners a dose of plus gas waiting for part... Noel

Remove all the screws and use a proper door trim panel removal tool. Also make sure all rips in the plastic sheet are repaired and its properly stuck down before putting the trim panel back. Lock hole cover buttons can be found on ebay.

there will be plenty more cars to buy a dent or scrape in nearly all the other panels is easily sorted as the panels can be replaced [wings doors bumpers bonnet tailgate] but in the rear quarter isnt really doable unless its an insurance claim even then i think itd be written off due to cost

I planned to attach it with cable-ties only what did you do By the way the orange cable from the ignition barrel is also switched live but Ive already used that twice for amp shut-off and Siemens handsfree onoff. I used this as a rough guide with a few modifications the new socket was fitted directly behind the removable panel for accessing the pollen filter then plugged the charger in fed the wire above the pedals and then between the side of the dash and the rubber door seal to the A pillar. Works a treat

By the way if you want to get a good idea of what bits sell and for what price have a look at eBay (if you havent already...). panels and bumpers always seem pretty popular and even things like the speedo lights and mirrors may sell if in good enough nick... -- as will the interior seats and door panels.
i would also avoid removal in this weather best to just do it in the summer then the hole panel is warmed up it will cool to quickly in this weather
