1996 lincoln towncar door ajar


For my 96 towncar I determined it was one of the rear doors. Partially remove inside door panel by removing 2 screws on the inside grab handle. these are located behind covers at the end of the door handle. you can use a flat head screw driver to pry up from the bottom of the cover. Then remove other screw located on top corner of door panel. Grab bottom of door panel and give a good pull on it, it should pull out fairly easy because it is held on by plastic clips. Then pull on sides. Towards the back edge of the door behind the panel 3/4 of the way down you will see a single wire going in to the door mechanisms. Cut this wire with wire cutters. Make sure it is a single wire! Put the inside door panel back together. make sure you align the plastic inserts properly and give that area of the door a good whack with your hand. Replace screws. Close all doors. If you found the bad door the door ajar light will go off. If not do the same thing to the other door. I fixed mine on the second try.

2004 Deville right rear door panel removal, what hidden fasteners are holding it on other than the plastic clips? j_remby@msn.com


There are always screws under trim covers at the door grab handles, the door latch release handle and around the door pocket. Some doors have screws around the outsides and underneath the panel.

I need to print out a discription of how to replace a door handle


First, remove the window switch/door lock switches from the door panel, these are usually just clipped in, sometimes held in by a screw. Then, remove the outer cover for the interior door handle. This has one screw in it that you should be able to see (or see the little panel covering it which needs to be popped off first- be careful not to break it!). The plastic piece can then be slid slightly forward and popped out. Check to see if you have a speaker in your door. If so, you may have to pop off the plastic panel covering it, and unscrew the speaker, then disconnect the electrical connectors and take it out of the way. There should be two screws, if memory serves, underneath the grab handle of the door, and then just check the perimeter of the door panel to make sure there are no other existing screws in it. After all of the screws have been removed, you can then begin at the bottom and (carefully) pop the door panel out of its clips. Once the bottom and sides are popped out, pull up slightly to pull the entire panel up and off of the window sill. Now you can get to the actual door handle. Unbolt it, and disconnect the little clip/clips behind it which hold the metal bars in place. These bars are what pushes and pulls on the actual latch and lock assembly. Be sure not to break the clips! You may need to reuse them. The new handle can then be clipped back in, and then bolted back up. Important: Test out the function of the new handle before reinstalling the door panel and all of the accessories. If you have a problem, it will be much easier to fix or troubleshoot with the door panel already off! Make sure you dont lock yourself out of the car, in case the door handle fails. Once satisfied that the handle is working properly, install the door panel by hanging it on the window sill first, then lining up the clips and snapping them back in, this usually works best with a little smack of the palm against the door panel. If a clip will not go in, check to make sure it is properly installed and lined up. Once the door panel is fully lined up, screw in the two screws located underneath the arm rest/grab handle, and any other screws you may have removed. Install the speaker (if youve removed it) along with its plastic cover. Pop in the plastic covering for the interior door handle, and screw that in as well. Pop the plastic covering back on that. Now, reconnect and pop the window switch/door lock switches back in, and you should be good to go!

how do I remove a door panel on a Suzuki Aerio


The top of the grab handle pops off and there are two screws underneath as MrEcko wrote. Remove the one screw from the door opener handle and slide the handle and trim forward about 3/8 inch. It will then come out and you can remove the control rod.

behind the inside door handle by removing the inner cover you well find two screws remove them by the inside grab handle on the door there is a small rubber mat remove the mat on the upper right corner is a trim piece it just pops off once the screws and trim is removed use a small screw driver and go below the door panel and wedge it between the panel & door and pull back on the screw driver until you here a pop the door panel is held on by plastic clips :caution--when removing the panel DO NOT YANK ON THE DOOR PANEL. THE INSIDE DOOR HANDLE IS STILL ATTACHE D TO THE DOOR PANEL. if you dont unhook this cable before removing door panel you will break the plastic end of the cable if you break this you will have to replace the cable then this well involve removing the latch because the cable is hooked inside the latch hope this helps
