Remove srews from armrest. slide wide blade putty knife or screwdriver under bottom right or left hand door, where trim meets metal. slide in and pull out, you will need to persuade it a little. continue all the way around. when complete pull panel straight up to release from window. be careful. remove wiring clips from the power accesories. be careful w/ clips. you can buy replacement clips at your local hardware store for a dollar a piece. good luck

All doors open besides drivers it lock me in have to climb over seat to passengers n windor off track but there's power to open windor butglass off track


A rod connects the inner door handle to the lock mechanism. Possibly the window off track damaged the rod or knocked it off where it attaches to the lock or the handle. To check this you must remove the inner door panel. I suggest you check "you tube" to see if there are any vids on the procedure.. if not go purchase the Chilton manual or take the car to a serviice center. It will be at lease 2 hours of labor + any needed parts. the window can be repaired at the same time since the inner panel will be removed.

Drivers side window seems to be off track and i dont know how to get into the door to repair it.


You would need to remove the door panel to access your window track. There are plastic expansion pins which hold the door panel in place. There is a tool specifically designed for this it looks like a screwdriver with a v center, slide this tool under the pin and push down on the handle and it will pop the pins out. You may need to unhook or remove your master control unit that operates your power doors/window etc in order to have enough room to access window track. There are little cheap crappy plastic guides which hold the window in place which break quite frequently you can get those from the dealer cheap (they are always in stock). Remove those guides and install the new ones and you'll be good to go

Drivers side window has slipped off track 2006 mazda mpv


On the inside trim, you can 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 you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanics.

The first thing that you need to do is Go to the Auto Parts Store and get some Door Panel Fasteners for your car. You will Break a Few in the Repair. Next, Try and Locate ANY Screws or False Screw Hole Fillers in the Door Panel. Once you have found these Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and slowly Pull it Off. Once you get it off, Clean out the Track that the Window Sits in with a screw Driver. Put some Clear Silicone Sealant into this Track and Insert the Window from the Top. Press Firmly into the Track and Slowly Raise the Window all the way up. Allow 24 Hours or so for the Sealant to Dry before Opening the Window.
