My pocket also would not close all the way because the stop broke. I had to take off the door panel. The pocket is attached from the inside of the door panel.

Thanks for the detailed instructions on the front door panel removal. My pocket in the front passenger door broke and I thought I would try and just replace the whole panel, but finding a used complete door panel in good condition is difficult. I removed the door panel and am thinking that ordering a new pocket and replacing the pocket is a better option.

Any thoughts? Anyone that did swap out their old pocket with a new one?

Thanks, Brian
