    You have to change 'Thread Display Options' at the bottom of the sub-forum pages. Gives you options to go back days, weeks, months, year, beginning, etc. Once you choose this, you get pages back. I'm not sure if this something that can be saved with your account settings?

    Window track? The door lock actuator is not inside the door with the window. Are you trying to replace the window regulator?

    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Side note, have you tried moving the window up/down to see if it'll free up some access space?

    I have a rattle in both doors in that area. The only two rattles in the car actually. I was wondering if you guys have addressed rattles in that area while you had that handle and cover off.

    It's all explained here http://www.mazdas247.com/forum/showt...or-Replacement


    you shouldn't need to mess with the window at all I used this as my guide and it was pretty easy to do. I did the drivers door a couple of years ago and now need to do the passenger door.

    I'd assume this person would realize this since they were posting in the thread you just linked to..?

    I realizes that but if they are talking about window track getting in the way, they didn't read the beginning of the thread as the instructions are clear and don't involve anything in the way of the window or it's track.

    I gottcha, guess I was giving them the benefit of the doubt because it seemed obvious to me.

    I'm planning to change my actuators. Or actually I tried, following these instructions, but when I got to the point where I should pull the plastic door panel out, I just wasn't sure how it can be done without breaking anything. It flexes so much without coming off that I'm afraid I'll snap those plastic clips if I pull too hard.

    Any advice? If I could see where the clips are, I could perhaps reach in and pull near them with my hand or something...

    I have always started at the bottom corner and worked my way along it then the sides. Look at post 2 and you'll see the back side where the clips are located. Rarely (if ever?) have I broken any, but even if you do, they have them apart of a HELP! you can get at any auto parts store for cheap.

    The clips holding the plastic door panel are pretty sturdy. Just make sure you don't apply any lateral force, pull straight back. Don't be afraid to yank.

    The only trick to pulling is to find where the clips are located and pull at that point. I've found that a quick sharp pull works best, even then I've found that the clips stay in the body panel and don't come out with the trim piece. afterwords I just pull the clips out with a pair of needle nose pliers.

    Don't all US versions have the alarm? I need to do this repair and I'm trying to make sure I've got the right part number. 2006 Sport US version.

    My '06 Sport didn't have an alarm. I have the immobilizer, a panic button on the remote, and a blinking light on the dash that pretended I had an alarm.
