At least wait until the car is outta warranty to take it apart, besides when you take it to the dealership IT'S FREE. Just my opinion.
I have been in the car audio installation field for over 15 years, and i take apart interiors on a weekly basis.
and trust me, over the years i have seen my share of dealer related screw ups from taking interior panels apart. for mechanical related stuff? sure, i will go with warranty, but i will NEVER EVER let anyone else, much less a car dealership, touch my own personal vehicle's interior bits.
for verification of what i do, just click on my link in my signature.
and no, removing a door panel or an interior trim panel doesnt void your warranty. you should also know that a lot of "dealer installed" option items are actually performed by third party car audio and/or performance shops. I know becuase the shop i used to have had quite a few such contracts.
I think before you call everyone idiots, you have to take into account that not everyone is as inept as you think they are, and dont assume the dealer will do every kind of work perfectly. or at least be a bit more educated about the whole issue before taking such a firm stand.
