2 screwws in the bottom of the door, and the one in the handle, if you have manual windows there is a hex screw in there, then push the door up and lift off

Do yourself a favor and use peel n seal instead. Same thing, much cheaper. Get it at lowe's in the roofing section.

That's good stuff, though I used an off-brand product that I found at www.partsexpress.com. It was much cheaper than Dynamat, and didn't have too much odor. Peel n seal tends to smell a tad like asphalt to me.

I've used both peel and seal as well as dynamat ultra? is it, with the foil backing. They are almost exactly the same, they look the same, they work the same, they are different sizes and one costs a heck of a lot less.

You're talking about Dynamat Extreme, I think. I used that stuff to line the hatch of my old Eclipse. Worked great, but expensive.
Plus, the smell reminds me of roofing tar. The stuff I used is a think plastic polymer, that smells more like plastic than tar. Gives a good headrush the first few weeks, if you don't air it out right.

The peel and seal didn't smell any more than the dynamat did. I really don't recall any difference in smell between the two. I did two Mustangs that summer, a friends little brothers and my Cobra. I used the dynamat on his and peel and seal on mine. They appeared to be the same stuff, only difference is peel and seal is only about 12 inches wide.

The Dynamat was stinky for a few weeks. The other stuff is inside my doors, so I had to leave the windows down for a few days. I finally left the doors open on a hot day, and the heat got rid of the smell. It wasn't too bad. A plastic "new car" kind of smell.

Peel n Seal is mainly used to seal rooftops, so you'll find it at Lowes and occasionally Home Depot. If it's not there, call a local builder's supply place.

The stuff I used came mail order.
