I will try to help. the bottom of panel should just pry apart with flathead. there are screws in the door "puller". remove small panel at door mirror, one screw there. the power window switch will clip in on one end. pry up carefully on one end and look underneath it to see connection. slides in on one end and clips in on other. one screw under there. the plastic cover behind inside handle release should be pryed carefully to expose. trick is to be careful and take your time. hope this helps.

    Chevy colandro 2005, driver window doesn't go down and the lock doesn't lock.

    If it is just on that side in a relatively new car with no damage check the following:
    Fuses/Relays Motor Inside Door for Window/Door Lock
    It could be a coincidence that both failed at once, they could be linked, or they could be jammed together. Remove the door panel and check for any damage, failures, etc. Actuate the locks and windows with the panel off to see if anything moves/fails to move as planned.

    07 Chevy Tahoe passenger rear door handle broke

    a broken rear door handle takes only a few minutes to replace, whether it's the inside or the outside door handle. However i woudn't suggest you do it yourself if you are not really familiar in the trim panel removal, for you may damage some locking tabs or the finish. we don't need additional costs, right?

    1999 chevy tahoe when it gets wet doors lock.

    they're shorting from the water running down the inside of your door...pull the door panel and install a sheet of plastic over the window controls with duct tape at the top, sortof like a "flap" over the top of the window switches...make it 5-6 wider than the switch area.
    Your window "sweep" (at the top of the door) is most likely shot.
    Good Luck

    No power on front passenger door

    Check the connections between the door and the body, not the panel on the door. If a wire was pinched between the door and body that could be the problem. There should be a boot between door and body, peal that back and look for damaged or grounded wires. Repair as necessary.
