    Hi!

    I am going to pull my driver's side front door panel tonight to try to eliminate a nasty clunk that has developed (and put some Dynamat in the door panel for good measure).

    I have downloaded the removal instructions from the General Explorations forum, but have a couple of additional questions.

    (1) I have side airbags on my '00 Explorer XLS. Will removing the door panel potentially fire these things off? Not really sure where the sensor is located...

    (2) Is it a requirement to lower the window before removing the panel? I was hoping to be able to leave the window up...

    Any other last minute tips? I have the door panel tool, so I do not anticipate any major problems...

    Thanks!!
    Ryan

    Just a guess but I'd probably disconnect the battery and put the lights on (they won't light but to drain anything left) before getting near the airbags. I also use a nylon (plastic) spatula to help between the plastic door panels and the door metal.
