Door panels on a 1999 1.5 Accent 2 door sport

Discussion in 'Hyundai Accent' started by Aberdeenmartin, Jul 14, 2006.

  1. Hi, I'm having problems removing the door panels on my wife's Accent sport (2
    door, step down from the MVI).
    I've removed every screw and holder that I can see, but there appears to be
    an obstruction at the door mirror point. Can anyone tell me if there is
    another screw/fastner that I'm missing ??. I want to replace the window
    motors but can't even get started ! Also they don't sell the manuals in the
    UK !
    Thanks in advance, Martin

    Hi, Martin.

    The door panel can hang up on the triangular plastic trim by the mirror,
    so it may help to pull it off (if you haven't already done so). There is
    no screw there to my knowledge.

    I'd expect the trim to fasten in the same way as the U.S. vehicles. Grab
    an account at and look at the stuff on the 1999 Accent
    there. Sometimes models are introduced in the rest of the world prior to
    the U.S., so if the 1999 Accent stuff doesn't look correct, you might
    to look at the 2000 Accent instead.

    Also, I don't believe power windows were available in the U.S. on the
    Accent, so there's not likely to be anything about the switch or power
    window diagnosis in the manual.

  3. I have a '96 Accent 2 door. When I removed the door panel, there was a
    little plastic cover bezel by the mirror control arm. That piece is
    held on by a single, triangular little black clip, similar but
    different from the white plastic clips around the door panel.
    There are 3 or 4 little pieces of foam glued on to the inside of the
    plastic bezel, which help keep it from rattling around, I think.
    Anyway, I just pried it loose with my fingers, and it popped off. No
    damage, and no problems putting it back on later, either.
