Question about 2008 Nissan Rogue

1 Answer

Wearing of leather on top of driver door from resting arm.

I drive and sometime place my arm on the leather panel below window. As a result the leather portion is worn and discolored. The vehicle has less that 10,000 miles. Dealership states this condition is not covered under warranty. No where in the vehicle or in it's literature does it state not to drive with arm in this position. Has anyone else had this problem. I contacted Nissan regional representative and it was a joke. Representative never view the problem but also ruled it was not covered.

Well i hate to tell ya this, but regular wear and tear of your vehicle isn't ever covered, its known that if you rub on some thing enough it will wear out. leather seats will crack when cold, they don't tell you to not sit down if your seats are cold, they don't tell you not to stab your seat with a knife, but that will ruin it. i'm not trying to be a **** but it happens. you can try to clean it though with leather conditioners, and cleaners, and you can try to put some thing over it to keep this from getting worse, other than that all I can tell you is to try to keep your arm off of this panel.

How to remove drivers side inner door trim of toyota camry altise v6 2003


Before you get too carried away it may be possible to replace the arm rest without touching the trim panel. Check for some plugs in the arm rest and if there are some prise them out and you will find screws deep inside that will allow you to remove the arm rest. Normally trim is clipped over the top of the door and held in place by push in clips around the door.

Replaceing driver side mirror


Hello,

The nuts and bolts you need to get to are located on the interior side of the door. There may be a plastic triangle that looks like part of the door panel, but can be removed separately from the door panel, and other times you have to take the whole door panel off.

Most door panels are screwed into the door at the arm rest (usually underneath the arm rest, sometimes hidden by little panel colored plugs, and also screwed at the handle that opens the door. Once you get all the screws out, pull the panel from the bottom to unclip the plastic clips that hold it on, then work your way to the top. The top of the panel has a lip that sits over the ledge and hangs into the crack where the window is. Once the panel is off you will see the nuts you have to loosen to get the mirror off.

I hope this helps!

I seem to be having a problem with the rear driver's side window. When I lower the top and then attempt to close the window it goes up to about 1/2 inch of actually closing completely. What is the best...


regulator is going bad, to get it to close you can push up on the window and have someone push the window button up, this should allow the window to close. You can also pull the door panel off and look at the regulator and cable sometimes you can adjust the cable. There are usually four to five screw and then the door panel pops off. The arm rest and door handle have these screws but then can also be on the outside panel sometimes. Hope this helped tim

I need to replace my drivers side passanger window, attempted break-in, how do i get started?


you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. then pull off the seal (won't be able to reuse) and you can get to the inners of the door. You'll need to lower the window a bit so you can see the arm the window rests on and you just need to remove the clips / bolts holding the arm to the window. to get the new window in, you'll have to slide it through the top ****

Can't get door open, so can't remove panel to fix door open prob


These door panels are held in place to the interior door frame with push-in fasteners which are located around the side and bottom perimeter of the panel. These fasteners are popped out by placing a screw driver or other flat tool between the panel and the door frame. Usually there are screws and/or small bolts which hold the arm rest and door handle portion of the door panel. You need to locate any of these first and remove them. some screws/bolt heads may be hidden by small plastic caps which cover the heads. In some models, there is a piece of molding which is snapped in around the handle or on top of the arm rest. Once the perimeter fasteners are loose and all screws are removed, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the bottom window frame. Be careful not to move the panel too far away from the door frame until you disconnect all wiring connections on the back side. Those nylon buttons that hold the panel in place sometimes break off when you remove them. They are replaceable(auto parts store).

How do you take the door panel off for a 2003 Isuzu Rodeo? I cannot open the driver side door, something became loose.


FIRST: Prepare to support the inner door trim panel. If you have electric window lifts and a courtesy light in the door, you can disconnect the courtesy light, but the window lift wiring is continuous from the steel door "fair-lead" to the window switch(es). The panel will dangle from the wires if you don't have something to hold it up. A tool box works well. It also helps to use a vice-grip to hold the tool-box handle upright to form a catch point for the panel to rest against. You'll understand when you get there, and it's nothing to worry about. NEXT: 1. Remove screws: a - 4 at bottom of door behind removable plastic plugs b - 1 in plastic backing panel behind door handle c - 2 in door pull pocket in arm rest 2. Gently pull balance of panel away from door. It is held in place by "snap-in" fasters attached to the panel that fit through holes in the sheet metal door panel behind the trim panel. This may feel "wrong" or a bit scary, but most car door trim panels are held in place with similar methods. Be gentle but firm as you pull so that you don't bend/distort the trim panel. The wrap-around design of the trim panel prevents slipping a flat bar between the panel and the steel door until you've pulled it nearly hard enough to remove it, but you might assist with a Stanley "Wonder-Bar"--a flat "crow-bar" used by carpenters. 3. The top of the panel hooks over the window gap, so you just lift up and off the door-lock knob and out of that channel. Very easy. While you're in there, CHECK THE BOLTS HOLDING THE CENTER TRACK ON THE WINDOW LIFT. These bolts may have backed out to the point they fall out in your hands, or they may be loose. These bolts are the principle cause of window lift failure. The guide track is in the center of the door, and one of the bolts is behind a removable sheet metal "shelf" that holds up the arm rest and attaches the door pull in the arm rest. If the bolts are loose, BUY "PERMANENT" LOC-TITE and apply liberally to the threads and reinstall the bolts. I repeat, these kill the electric windows. If you're having problems with the electric windows and the motors still run, I've invented a repair that's superior to replacment. It costs $1.00 for hardware, but it requires some rudimentary skills. See email below if you want to pursue this. To replace the panel, position it over the lock button and nurse the lip down over the window gap opening. This is not difficult, but it can require a bit of wiggling and patience. Once the panel is seated on the top edge of the window gap, gently press on the perimeter of the panel and snap the plastic fasteners into their holes. There is one in the middle of the panel, too. Then replace the screws and trim bits and you're done. One other tip. It's helpful to have a small sheet of building plastic handy to repair/replace the protective plastic behind the trim panel. If you are removing the panel, I assume you're fixing something or installing speakers in the do

Need to remove door panel to repair window that is off track


There is a spring clip that holds your window crank on. Your best bet is to get a window crank remover. You can get one at most automotive parts stores. They're only a couple of bucks. You shove it in behind the crank, and then turn the crank, and it'll pop the clip off. When you re-install it, put the clip on the handle, line it up where you want it to be when the window is closed, and give it a bang with your hand. It should pop back on.
The arm rest will most likely be held with a couple of large philip's head screws. They are usually on the bottom side of the arm rest, sometimes the top, sometimes hidden by nylon plugs. Some vehicles only have one screw, and then you slide the arm rest forward to remove it.
I'm sure you'll figure it out once you start looking. Good luck!

Door panel removal


  There is hidden screw under top of arm rest.  the mirror control comes out.  Be careful.  then there are 2 screws in bottom of arm rest.  Then the arm rest/handle needs to spin up towards sky and it will pull out.  the scushing (plastic around handle ) slides forward and this handle surround will come off.  Then there are clips that are behind panel.  Put hand between door and door panel and pull panel outward. be careful.  sometimes firm tug is better
