Default dorr panel "adjustment"

I'm tired of having a broke moving arm rest with the window and unlock buttons. was thinking of slicing the door along the line that rides the arm rest and up to the switches that way, still have a arm rest and switches, but everything under that will be gone. you will never need to remove that upper piece all the switches are exposed as well as wires for maintenance and that means I can drill the moving armrest to the door frame and no need to remove it ever again and from someone looking in it is normal \o/ am I missing anything b4 I start hacking?

I think you're absolutely nuts dude. Slow down, take a deep breath and have a beer. Then read what you just posted.

IIRC, there's a spot behind the switch panel/door panel cup where a screw is supposed to go in, as to secure the center area of the panel to the door. On mine the hole was kinda messed up and I had to use like a 1/2" or so washer with the screw (hole was worn and the screw would just go through it when tightened beyond a certain point).

** Just re-read your post (I see something new each time, lol). Is it the lower half of the panel that is not secured??

I'm not sure how cutting up the door panel as you describe will help the situation any, unless you are just pissed and need a little retribution. When the dust clears though I think it will have made matters worse.

Maybe post a couple pics to help us understand what's going on here...

Click the image to open in full size.

the line that runs under the arm rest between the handle and from upper left to center right in that photo. remove under that whole line allowing access to every electrical wire any time ...also removes the need to take out electrical and allows you to permanently set that in place... both mine are lose and will come out if not careful when closing door.
