    Window stays up, and you need something (block of wood e.g.) toward the rear of the door to block the window and prevent it from falling down.

    Window would get in the way big time if it was down.

    Yeah, I recently took the door panel off of my car yesterday. It wasn't easy at first and I had to look at the instructions again. Make sure you follow the directions to the step and be very careful with the panel when taking it off. The previous owners tore off one of the clips so it doesn't stay in the middle. Be careful!

    Also, remove that speaker and hope to god that the previous owners had already drilled a hole where those rivets are.

    DO NOT TOUCH THE EXPOSED Sheet Molded Compound (SMC)! That crap is very bad! I touched a part of it with my finger and it's still hurting today. "Consider protection (as you would for handling fiberglass) for your skin, eyes and lungs during drilling and handling. There can also be some sharp edges inside the door, so be careful." Seriously, do what he says, ha-ha.

    Good Luck!

    Yeah window needs to be up - and supported before drilling the rivets/removing the secrews if drilled before. A C-clamp works great.
