Fabric panel on door - removable or not?

I am wanting to cover those little fabric covered pieces on each of the doors, but it seems like these do not come off - any ideas on removing them without splitting the door panel in half lol?

That part does not come out it is solid. What you have to do is cut the fabric a little bigger and then use something to push it down into the little gap

Re: Fabric panel on door - removable or not?

Yeah I was tryin to avoid that but I think thats the only option. I have come across pics on the net of people doing it that way and alot of them looked tacky - guess it depends on the person doing it

I have pics of mine up on Scionlife.com, it's in the second gen forum "Best Looking xB's... Let's see em" post number 868. The trick I used is when I tucked the fabric in, I used that little roller for putting piping into screen windows... It's perfect. One roller is rounded the other one has a groove in it.

Re: Fabric panel on door - removable or not?

They can be cut out and carefully screwed back together. I have done both a couple times and preferred method is cut out. You can totally wrap the panel and gives less patient people like me a much cleaner look.
