Remove the door panel armrest assembly by removing the four retaining screws and allow it to hang freely. Then remove the four armrest pad attaching screws and discard your old armrest pad. Place the new armrest pad on the assembly and attach it, reusing the factory screws.
When replacing the armrest pad, it's a great idea to go ahead and pick up a new chrome strip if yours is starting to look a little aged.

SPEAKER: We're going to show you how to remove your door panel on your '87 to '93 Mustang, , because you have to remove this panel to get to just about anything. There are door lock actuators, window motors, you name it. Really simple. You need a Phillips head screwdriver, a nut driver with a 3/8 socket, and a door panel removal tool, available off of our website.
Start by removing the Phillips head screw holding on the mirror hole cover. Then, remove the single Phillips head screw holding on the inner door handle bezel. And the Phillips head screw holding on the base of the speaker grille.
Now you've got two Phillips head screws, one at the front, and one at the back of your door armrest. Going ahead and remove those. Then grab you a small, flat-blade screwdriver, and you can remove your door armrest hole plugs. OK. Then you can grab your 3/8 socket and remove the two bolts that are remaining, holding on the arm rest.
Then you can lift up on the armrest, out, and pull it away from the door, and you've got two electrical connectors that you need to undo. And then you can move the arm rest out of the way. Grab your door panel removal tool and work your way around the perimeter of the door panel.
You've got 12 plastic clips that retain this poor panel to the door. Some of them may not be holding on anymore. Just remove the ones that are. And once all your clips are loose, you can lift up on the door panel, and pull it off of the car.
And now you have full access to everything inside the door that you're going to need to repair, or just to replace your panel.

I always forget to take a "before" pic. But this is a great addition to any older Fox-body with worn armrest pads. Only takes about 15 minutes to install one side (including removing the door panel). Only after installing this one do I realize that the one I installed after I bought my car is actually not the right color. I know I ordered a titanium but I must've received a gray one. It doesn't quite match. So when I got this one I was like, "Oh this is what it's supposed to look like."
Working in a customer service oriented job I can truly appreciate minute by minute notifications and incredible customer service. I am building my seventh fox and have dealt with every known distributor on the planet and LMR is by far the most efficient and thorough company I have dealt with.(twisted wedge top end kit and supporting equipment project starting this week)
