Fair enough - didn't realize that; I withdraw my comment :)

Thought I should add a tip or two on installation.
Install your panel onto the top first, engaging it properly so it Hooks onto those edges.
Next I line up the upper left screw hole, You can look through the hole in the panel with the help of a torch and see the hole in the door for the screw. Once you have that one in. the right upper screw should line right up.
Window crank and lock knob just "Snap" back on. Once you have put the clip back into position of course).
Now, the first time I did this, I spent a fair bit of time trying to figure out how to get the door release lever back on. It won't slide back into the track unless it's in the open position.
So for this you will need 2 very special tools.
A medium big screw driver, And a big screw driver
Also known as G.M. Special tool number 67654369905326897532569.
Take your med. big screw driver and engage it into the channel track and use it to raise the mec into the open position. Like this.

Then take your big screw driver, And wedge it behind the mec to hold it open, Like this.

Then you can slide your lever onto the track, Now as long as you don't drop the screw down into the door panel, your home free.
Cheers.
