its the paneling inside that I want to remove. I see the the screws, but once I remove all of them there is usually a plastic piece with no visible screws that that covers the original piece(if you can understand). My reason for removing the plastic is to thoroughly clean each piece and possibly recarpet. By the way, any tips on carpeting?

the paneling inside is or should not be to hard to remove it will take awhile to remove the paneling and clean it why not just leave it in place and clean it that way i know what your trying to do but removing all of that can be a long time to put back together also on the carpet evreything will have to come out for that seats evrey thing the main question to ask now is how long will this take and how often do you need to drive your vehicle. as for the screws its a start but some pieces slide into each other etc. do you have a factory service manual or you might want to try a book store and see if they have a book on auto upholstery it should help you out best of luck Don,

Yea, no need to remove the old carpet. You should be able to scrub it in place. You can probably rent a steamer like you do for the house and use that to clean it .

Fabreeze might also work quite well.

I can tell you taking out all the panels is a major PITA. I did it with my neighbor on his 1991 Chevy S10 Blazer to hook in a trailer harness. I believe this was before they had vehicle specific connectors. It was a big league gazorch taking everything out with those folding seats. Lol.
