Help with door panels

Recommended Posts


i have a 1972 Mach 1 with standard interior, nothing but arm rest and door handle, am trying to get door panel off but seems like armrest is preventing me, there are screw holes on the bottom of the arm rest but it doesn’t look screws in there, can someone tell me how to get the door panel / armrests off?

I believe it is a 1/4 inch nut driver to capture the head.  There is a hex head cap screw in there, the correct size standard socket has the same OD as the molded vinyl opening.  So I am thinking it is 1/4 or 5/16.

Let us know if that helps.

Thanks kcmash, the manual and a video for a 71 door disassembly said allen head screws. Tried 1/4 and 5/16, neither seemed to work so went up to a thin 3/8 socket but the fit was pretty snug, didn’t want it to get stuck, luckily i have a set of deep sockets, tried the 3/8 and that was it

thanks again
