Using the 10 mm socket, remove the upper bolt.

 

 

 

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using the 10 mm wrench, remove the lower panel bolt.

Note: it is only necessary to loosen this bolt, since the panel will slide out.

 

With the bolts removed, slide out the panel. Now that the panel has been removed, thoroughly clean the inside of the panel. You may also want to repair any stone chips before re-installing the panel.
