This is a description on how to remove the door panel on a 3-door accent.
Could be helpful if you are about to change speakers.
Please excuse my english, I'm from Sweden, but I hope you'll understand.
I would be thankful if you could help me with the language.

1. Remove the 4 screws shown on the picture and the screw in the opening mechanism.

2. Remove the cap on the lock button.

3. Remove the mirror lever cap by pulling it straigt out. It is attached with one clip.

4. Remove the door crank by detaching the C-clip between the spacer and the door panel. It's tricky and somekind of hook could be useful. I used a screwdriver and it cost me some blood.

5. Pull out the plastic clips. Be careful. I think a spatula could be a useful tool.

6. Move the panel forward and up to remove the opening mechanism from the door. Then pull the mechaninsm out from the panel, turn it and push it back through the panel.
[attachmentid=593]

7. At this point the panel should be removed and you can see the door speaker and the adaptor. As you can see the opening mechanism remains on the door.

To put the doorcrank back just put the pieces together as shown in the picture and push it in position.

Good luck!

What a wonderful reply. We all thank you.

I wish to add 2 hints:

1) I used a 5 inch, right angle pry bar inserted between the door material and the rubberish, washer. I pried *hard* in different places around the window crank before I could barely see one of the 2 clip ends. A screw driver handles was too big for me to get the tip on the clip end. I had to use a "poker" which had no handle, then using a 3rd hand (1 on the pry bar, 1 holding the poker at the clip) I tapped the poker to knock off the clip. With luck the clip did not spring "out of sight" (so DO NOT do this with the car sitting on dirt or in a yard.. you will never find it). Elapsed time 1 hour!

2) Emphasize that the door handle on the inside remains stationary. Pull the bottom of the door panel away from the door enough so that the panel clears the window crank capstan which sticks out about 10 millimeters. You must jam the loosened door panel forward maybe 6 to 10 millimeters to free it from inside door handle. Lift the whole door panel upwards. Now that the panel is much more free you can angle the inside door handle through the hole. Off comes the panel.

I have replace the door handle and the window regulator on my 96. Both of those tasks were [b]easier[b] than removing the stinkin' window crank.

Thank you so much! This was very helpful to me. It's the same principle on my '97 4-door Accent, although even easier because there's no window crank, I have automatic windows. And your english was just fine!

Awesome post RobieF, this will help me big time with the replacement of the speaker cover. I don't know why Hyundai would make the speaker cover so difficult to remove, but whatever.

Nice article. Thanks.

Getting the window winder off is a pig. A tip I came across is to force some thin cloth around the shaft of the window winder and hold the cloth while turning the handle. The clip catches on the cloth and can be pulled loose. It worked for me with a yellow duster but it took a while. I hope it helps somebody else.
