    Hey all....I came home from work yesterday and ended up locking the truck up from the passenger side. While pushing the power lock button down, this happened. Possibly an easy fix?

    That panel comes out easy. Pop the front up and the slide it forward and lift it out. Don't pry the rear up or you will break the tab.

    What this guy said. The amount of force needed to lift and remove that panel can be done by hand by a 9 year old. Meaning, be gentle in removing the panel lifting from the front/top of the panel, near the dashboard using either your nails or a thin plastic piece as not to damage the trim to separate the panel.
