    I have no pictures right now because I didn't think about it when I did the mod. And this is for an Access CAB.

    Take a 10mm hex bit and screw off the bolt. The door chime button is by the loop lock on the door frame.

    You will have to partially remove the rear door panel (if you are an Access cab owner). 2 torx bolts to unscrew, a plastic rivet and the seat belt bolt. The 1st torx screw is in the handle right below the rear glass window and the 2nd screw is under a flap inside the door handle/plunge. The plastic rivet is on the top of the door panel.

    The rear door panel will just pull/snap off. You will see 2 small wires with a plug end on it. Unplug the connector and then tuck the wires back behind the rear door panel. The wires are held there by a piece of tape, so there's no worry about it rumbling around inside the door.

    Once you have bolted on the boot and button assembly for the door chime, then start putting back together the rear door panel.




    So now when you are having a mod day or something and you have your doors open, the door chime wont ruin the good tunes! :D



    I will get pictures up sometime soon. Its raining cats and dogs right now, so I cant do too much.

    Nice trick, i just added a ground wire and a switch under the driver sill for it. I think doing your way causes the lights not to turn off when you open the door if i remember correctly. But all in all good work REP+

    Thank you! And I believe it turns off everything. Door light on dash and the beep. But I don't mind. I know how to get in and out of my truck, hahaha.

    See I figured since the button wasn't grounded, I figured the whole button setup was grounded when it was screwed in... and I was right! :cool:

    yup, figured that out lol. When i added the switch it makes it nice, especially since i always forget to turn my lights off, i like the auto shut off.
