Your door panels do far more than act as mere interior décor pieces. They also serve to protect delicate electrical wiring, window control mechanisms, and other internal components from getting damaged by UV rays, rain, and other environmental hazards. Door panels also serve as a base for your door handles, power window switches, and mirror controls.
What Door Panels Are Made of
Door panels used to be made of cardboard, with an upholstered finish of vinyl, cloth, carpeted fabric, or leather facing the interior of the passenger space. Modern vehicles usually feature door panels, or cards as some in the industry call them, that are made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polypropylene, or styrene-maleic anhydride (SMA). These advanced plastics allow for flexible, unique designs that hold up better to scratches and abrasion.
Genuine OEM Door Panels Fit Best
Eventually, though, your door panel can wind up getting damage due to no fault of your own. When that happens, replacing it is the best option. Considering that you can pay nearly $1,000 just for a replacement part alone, it makes great financial sense to tackle the project on your own.
First, make sure to get the right one for your vehicle. Your manufacturer designs their door panels specifically to your model's dimensions, ensuring the precise fit that you want. Be sure to take your time as you remove the old door panel, as you'll want to keep track of every screw you removed -- and its location -- so that you can attach your new door panel securely and correctly. Our online auto parts store has everything you need, in stock and ready to ship. Even better, we sell our parts prices below MSRP -- so you can stay on budget as you complete the project.
