yep- that's how I saw what I explained... it's 2 tabs on each side. I can see it clear as day, just wondering if there is a secret to getting it out. they don't look like they're gonna move too easily either

well- i'll post up some pics now. I was getting anxious waiting for my headlights and was wondering what I could do to my truck in the mean time. I got tired of looking at the dry rotting plastic backplate on my keypad. So I had some extra black and clear spray paint, so I thought I'd do some free modding when I had some free time. 5 coats of black, 4 of clear and you see the results.
To get the key pad off; pull the whole inner cover off the door and reach into the door up by the pad, there's a metal bracket (in the picture) on the right side, just slide it off, unplug the electrical connector and it just falls out.
The rest is simple, there are tabs on the numbers, just bend the cover around them and it'll come off. Here's some pics.
Keypad Apart- notice the plastic... kinda gettin chalky

Thought it was going to rain, so I made a high end door cover... I ran out of carbon fiber, so a sandwich bags did the trick! oh- and it didn't rain.

Final Product: it just blends right in! I like it- and it was FREE!
